In this compelling book, Rommel himself, one of the most successful commanders on World War II and certainly the most well-known, writes about his views on the philosophy of warfare, battles, leaders, and the progress of both World Wars. A complete picture of how a military genius grappled with the actuality of war is presented through Rommel's accounts of his experiences as a soldier in World War I, and through newly translated extracts from letters, orders and the narratives of daily action in World War II that he dictated every evening. Dr Pimlott's commentary sets Rommel's writing in context, describing the background to the great general's ideas and the way in which his plans were affected by circumstances beyond his control. The result is an outstanding insight into Rommel's military career, written from an objective viewpoint.

This was my first real book. Being of the computer generation most of my historical knowledge has come from the internet. To read about Field Marshall Rommel in his own words was stimulating and exciting. Only now and then is the diary type account of events broke up by a summary. Dr. Pillmot manages to effectively sum up each section and then lets the book flow again, something which helped me finish it in two days. Highly recommended for all who have even the remotest interest in the life of a great man, who loved his country and fought hard for its future. Starting as a lowly Officer Cadet in WWI to the rank of Field Marshall towards the end of WWII, the reader can learn from his example --By "algore25"
This is a book about military operations written largely by Rommel and edited by Dr. John Pimlott. Unlike "Attacks" by Rommel which is a volume of accounts of his experiences in WWI, this book is easier to read than are typical military after-action reports. "Attacks" was dry; this book is intriguing. There are many gems of wisdom found inside that are just as applicable in this day and age as they were in Rommels day. I believe the man was honourable and chivalrous. The epitome of a professional soldier. He would have made a great American! --By Timothy G. Hudson
