Rommel as military commander by Ronald Lewin( Book )

42 editions published between 1968 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the Nazis wreaked havoc on Europe in the early 1940s, the war in Northern Africa seemed relatively insignificant. Yet a series of surprising victories by the Afrika Korps forced Winston Churchill to refocus his attention. Out of the desert, one of the war's most brilliant commanders was blooming--Commander Erwin Johannes Eugen Rommel. In this provocative study, Ronald Lewin charts the course of Rommel's military career. Rommel, the "Desert Fox," was a tactical genius--his personal leadership and ability to improvise on the battlefield with minimal resources were exemplary. Yet lapses in Rommel's judgement, combined with Churchill's heightened defenses and Hitler's neglect, led to crushing defeat for the Afrika Korps at Alamein in 1942. As Rommel's success waned, so did his relations with the Fuhrer. Rommel was an exceptional commander--not only for his skills, but for the integrity with which he carried himself. This integrity, admired even by his adversaries, proved fatal. Unafraid to voice his objections to Hitler's military decisions, Rommel was associated with the 1944 plot to kill the dictator. In the wake of the plot's failure, Rommel was forced to take his own life. - Publisher
