"Erwin Rommel, the most famous German field marshal in World War II, also known as "The Desert Fox," was a hero of the Third Reich and widely respected by his opponents. Both in France and North Africa, he consistently outwitted his adversaries with the pace at which he conducted his operations and his ability to sense the weak spot in his enemy's deployment. ... Throughout his military career, Rommel displayed an outstanding ability to seize the initiative and retain it. In this captivating new exploration of the man's military career, former Royal Tank Regiment Officer Charles Messenger draws on the skills of this controversial yet tactically brilliant general for the benefit of modern day leaders."--
