I was seeking an authentic, detailed commantary on Rommel,not based on the appalling film which reflected cupidity rather than accuracy.Bookstores revealed nothing so, as before I consulted Amazon and found a good and r4espected military historian ie.Liddel, Hart containing original documents,suberbly collected and annotated. The book arrived promptly and in mint condition and proved as ever from your sourced exactly what was wanted.

The Rommel papers -
Haven't yet read the book (my husband is reading), but having flicked through it looks very interesting, a perspective from the other side, there were/are some very decent human beings amongst the Germans, Rommel amongst them. I look forward to reading it; it will be next in line.

For me, the great significance of this book is that we get to read detailed accounts of divisional, corps, and army actions by one of the masters of armored warfare -- without the typical self-aggrandizement that comes with time for reflection. His account of the fight into France is the very best accounting of the "fog of battle" I've ever read. I consider this a must-read for anyone who wants to gain any understanding of warfare, particulary WWII.

This interseting text provides a facinating insight into the
mind of Field Marshall Erwin Rommel through out his campaigns
in the Second World War. This detaled display of real
manuscripts written by the great soldier shows his ambitious,
zealous, and sometimes dashing style in which he upset Allied
commanders time and time again with minimal forces and
limited supplys. For any person who is intrigued by the art
of war or has a deep interest in history, this book will
captivate until the last page has been turned.

This book provides an excellent insight into the point of view of one of Germanys most famous Generals, as he storms across France with his 7.Panzer-Division and the fighting in North Africa. This is supplemented by excellent editing by Liddell-Hart who comes in with footnotes or text to correct any slips or exaggerations made by Rommel during the narrative so we gain a clear picture as possible.

This however ends Erwin Rommel's participation in the book. Rommel's actions in Italy, Normandy and his final days are covered by Fitz Bayerlein (who fought along side Rommel and was the divisional commander of the Panzer Lehr Division during the fighting in Normandy) and his son Manfred Rommel. However these sections also add to the book and the insight into the man.

The only flaw which can be said of the book is that Rommel does not let on to the enormous amount of intelligence he had in regards to Anglo-Commonwealth strength and dispositions during the Desert War thanks to intercepted messages sent by the American embassy staff in particular Colonel Fellers.
