"Based on his own experiences in the First World War, Rommel discusses and analyses the tactics that lay behind his success ... As a leader of a small unit, he proved himself an aggressive and versatile commander, with a reputation of using the terrain of the battleground for his own advantage, for gathering in as much intelligence on the enemy, as he could, and for seeking out and exploiting enemy weaknesses. For his achievements in [World War I] he was awarded Germany's highest order for valour"--Dust jacket.
