ex-Lothian library, usual stamps, good slip on cover, 247pp, a shade under 500g for post, bw pix throughout. synopsis >> The legend of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel—the “Desert Fox”—is threefold: he was a simple soldier who did his duty and knew nothing about Nazism; he was a commander of superlative talent who ran rings around the British in North Africa in 1941–42; and he was a leader of the resistance to Hitler who gave his life to the cause after the failure of the July 1944 plot. In this lucid, exemplary volume, Ralf Georg Reuth shows that all three of the above assumptions are false and reveals the truth in a brilliant book that exposes the self-serving role of the Cold War West in promoting the Rommel legend. review >>> A recommended read for those interested in seeing Rommel's achievements in an objective light, his victories and losses, as well as how both the Germans and British used Rommel for their own needs (the most photographed German general, it should be noted). Also, how even after the war he served as a token tool for, once more, both the Germans and British in propagating their respective causes.
