Product Description

From the Back Cover

Rommel's highly acclaimed analysis of infantry tacticsA superb insight into his wartime experiencesWith a personal introduction by Rommel's son Manfred Field Marshal Erwin Rommel exerted an almost hypnotic influence not only over his own troops but also over the Allied soldiers of the Eighth Army in World War II. Even when the legend surrounding his invincibility was overturned at El Alamein, the aura surrounding Rommel himself remained unsullied. In this classic study of the art of war, Rommel analyzes the tactics that lay behind his success. First published in 1937, it quickly became a highly regarded military textbook and also brought its author to the attention of Adolf Hitler. Rommel was to subsequently advance through the ranks to the high command in World War II. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
As an avid reader of Field Marshall Erwin Rommel, I was delighted to obtain a copy of his book, Infantry Attacks. Written by Rommel with illustrations by Rommel, it allows an understanding of why Rommel was so successful in WWII. If only the Allied generals had read it before their defeats in North Africa! A book for those interested in Rommel, his battles of WWI or anyone interested in infantry tactics. I wouldn't be surprised if this book makes mandatory reading for infantry officer cadets!

Wow! What an amazing exciting and thrilling book. After reading this book you will realise this man was the greatest military leader and tactician EVER. The thought processes, experiences and leadership skills of this man are extraordinary, his compassion and honour for the enemy as well as his a own troops was a rarity in the 14-18 war. If your boss at work is as useless as mine as most of the leaders in this country are, make them read this, they might learn something. You will also find out that alot of WWI was not just bogged down trench warfare but was fast paced movement. I see now why they still teach this book in military academies today. I'm not sure if he was helped to write this book but it is wonderfully written. DON'T BE PUT OFF if you are not interested in the military it is a fantastic adventure book as well. It starts with his experiences in the trenches around the Luxembourg region and moves through mountain warfare in Romania and the Italian border. Please read this, you will not regret it. It is one of those books that when you get near the end you slow up as you want to savour it as you know your next book will never satisfy you as this one does. BUY IT, BUY IT AND BUY IT.

A brilliant insight in to the mind of a young Erwin Rommel. He cut his teeth on the front line.

This combined with *Rommel Papers* is a priceless combination and a great historic purchase.

Format: Paperback
We are aware of Rommel and his success in the second world war. This is a detailed account
of his service in the infantry covering specific attacks. It is surprising to find him
attached to the mountain infantry and at a relatively young age revealing the skills,
determination and flexibility in leading his troops for which he was so famous in the
whole of his life. It is very revealing of his character.

This is Erwin Rommel's first hand accounts of skirmishes/battles throughout world war one.

This is a book that can be read by anyone from an enthusiast to military personnel.
Each chapter ends with notes on what happened and what he aims to improve on.
You can feel every moment as if you were there yourself.
A well written book that is hard to put down.
