Fox on the run
This is the strange and fascinating life of legendary German general Erwin Rommel, from his days as a youth in Imperial Germany—when he had a child out of wedlock with an early girlfriend—through his lauded military exploits during World War I to his storied role in World War II to his death by suicide, after he attempted a failed coup against Adolf Hitler.
Rommel was a man of contradictions, a soldier who wrote a bestselling book about World War I, a commander who went from leading Hitler’s bodyguard to trying to kill him, a serious military mind who was known for participating in practical jokes.
In Desert Fox, author Samuel Mitcham confronts the truth about Rommel and takes a close look at his military actions and reflections.
