Rommel Takes the Fall
And much more!
After being implicated in a last minute plot to kill Hitler in the final phases of World War Two, Rommel was given a choice. He could either face charges of treason or commit suicide. He was then duly assured that in the advent of his suicide, all charges would be dropped, covered up, never mentioned again. He was then promised a hero’s burial with full military honors and even a pension for his wife. Rommel was then literally driven to his suicide when members of the SS transported him to a secluded area, where he swallowed a cyanide capsule - a gruesome and twisted end to a man that was supposed to be his nation’s greatest hero.
What caused a nation to canonize and cannibalize one of its best champions simultaneously? What were the events that led up to the strange paradox that was Erwin Rommel’s life?

not for the serious scholar
want to know a quick summary of the desert fox? this is your book. want to impress your history nerd buddies with your in depth knowledge of rommel? better find something else.
this is just an overview of rommel's professional career. its not informative enough for my taste.
"he retook a city from communists diplomatically" yes but how?
"he lead a panzer regiment into france" yes, but which one?
i know what he did, thats not whats interesting to me. what is interesting is how he did it. nice book for someone looking to be a history "jack of all trades"
