Author(s): Sir David Fraser
Erwin Rommel was one of the oustanding commanders of World War II, respected as well as feared by his opponents. His instinct for battle and leadership set him apart from his contemporaries and inspired the men under his command. David Fraser's study brings to Rommel's career not only the insights of a biographer, but also those of a soldier. He shows how superficially undisciplined Rommel's style of leadership could be, and how he believed in boldness of manoeuvre, ferocity in attack, and tenacity in pursuit.
