9781905791958: Rommel: The End of a Legend (Haus Histories)

Field Marshal Erwin Rommel was the most popular soldier of World War II. Under his leadership the German Afrika Korps advanced all the way to Egypt. Known as the Desert Fox, Rommel was considered invincible. That is the story told in the history books. Ralf Georg Reuth paints a different portrait of Erwin Rommel: a picture of a man who owed his fame in part to Nazi propaganda and whose role in the resistance is still unclear; the image of a soldier, who was promoted by Hitler and who continued to stay true to him until the end, when he committed suicide at the behest of his Führer. His personal fate is the mirror image of the German tragedy of that time: to have followed the Führer to the end and to believe that one had thereby done one's patriotic duty.

About the Author:

Ralf Georg Reuth, born 1952 in Oberfranken, Germany, is a historian and biographer. He is noted for his biographies of political figures, including Hitler, Goebbels, Rommel and Angela Merkel.

Review:

'The legend of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel - the "Desert Fox" - is threefold: he was a simple soldier who did his duty and knew nothing of Nazism; he was a commander of superlative talent who ran rings around the British in North Africa in 1941-2; he was a leader of resistance to Hitler who gave his life to the cause after the failure of the July 1944 plot. In this lucid, exemplary volume, Ralf George Reuth shows that all three of these assumptions are false ... and reveals the truth in a brilliant book that, incidentally, exposes the self-serving role of the Cold War West in promoting the Rommel legend.' -Frank McLynn, The Independent
