The Rommel Papers

New or Used: $33.95
When Erwin Rommel diedby forced suicide at Hitlers commandhe left behind in various ingenious hiding places the papers that recorded the story of his dramatic career and the exact details of his masterly campaigns. It was his custom to dictate each evening a running narrative of the days events and, after each battle, to summarize its course and the lessons to be learned from it. He wrote, almost daily, intimate and outspoken letters to his wife in which his private feelings andafter the tide had turnedforebodings found expression. To this is added by Rommels son Manfred the story of the field marshalls last weeks and the final day when he was given the choice of an honorable suicide or an ignominious trial for treason. An engrossing human document and a rare look at the mind of the Desert Fox, The Rommel Papers throws an interesting light on the Axis alliance and on the inner workings of Hitlers high command.
