9780916242732: Rommel and the Rebel (Abridged Edition)

ROMMEL AND THE REBEL is a military adventure about the legend that Field Marshal Erwin Rommel toured American civil war battlefields before WWII. In 1937, Rommel, then a Wehrmacht infantry colonel, visits the battlefield park at Brice's Crossroads in Mississippi to study the tactics of Confederate cavalry general Nathan B. Forrest. Rommel's guide and interpreter is a U.S. Army lieutenant of German descent, Lt. Max Speigner. In 1941, when Rommel's panzers are pounding the British army in North Africa, Speigner is attached to the British military intelligence. He recognizes maneuvers inspired by Forrest and launches a desperate duel of wits with the Desert Fox.

About the Author:

Lawrence Wells received B.A. and M.A. degrees from the University of Alabama; and a Ph.D. from the University of Mississippi. He is also the author of "Let the Band Play Dixie" (Doubleday, 1987)

From Publishers Weekly:

In 1937, a group of German officers toured Civil War battlefields. What if one of them was Erwin Rommel? And what if he was obsessed with rebel Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest, unorthodox but successful cavalry leader? German-speaking U.S. Army Intelligence Lt. Max Speigner is sent to Oxford, Miss., as liaison. He becomes friendly with Rommel because of their mutual regard for Forrest. When the British later find his memo on Rommel's tactics (borne out in the blitzkrieg), they call Max to Cairo in late 1941 to help in "divining" Rommel's plans. The former friends eventually meet again, struggling as enemies. Part of the book is silly (Rommel in New York at a ballgame), part is very unlikely (Rommel on a drunken, midnight tour of Shiloh with "Bill Faulkner") and part is overblown (fanciful flashbacks to Forrest's behavior in battle). But there's real excitement, especially in the scenes of Rommel's drive on Benghazi and a good depiction of the "Desert Fox" as the "respectable" German warrior. First novelist Wells runs the Yoknapatawpha Press in Oxford, Miss. February 7
