"The Desert Fox himself shares his personal philosophy of warfare, and offers his views of battles, leaders and the progress of both World Wars. A complete picture of how a military genius grappled with the reality of war is presented through Rommel's accounts of his combat experiences and through newly translated extracts from letters, orders and the narratives of daily action in World War II. In addition, some of Rommels' personal photos are included ... Dr. John 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"--Dust jacket.
