Desmond Young's biography succeeds in depicting the perils and layers of the German military hierarchy, and reveals the natural instincts of Rommel in his early youth and World War I escapades that delight the reader. The biography becomes fascinating before reaching the desert campaigns of World War II, benefiting immensely from post-WWII interviews with his World War I comrades who outlived him. When you do reach the desert campaigns you expect to rely heavily on maps to follow the engagements, but the prose of Young's narrative puts you in the action.

Talk about Rommel

I had read a more contemporary biography of Field Marshall Erwin Rommel (lacking editorially) that failed to place this dynamic general emerging from a sufficient historical context, leaving off those traits that explain his ascent to the forefront of German military figures. Desmond Young's biography succeeds in depicting the perils and layers of the German military hierarchy, and reveals the natural instincts of Rommel in his early youth and World War I escapades that delight the reader. The biography becomes fascinating before reaching the desert campaigns of World War II, benefiting immensely from post-WWII interviews with his World War I comrades who outlived him. When you do reach the desert campaigns you expect to rely heavily on maps to follow the engagements, but the prose of Young's narrative puts you in the action. Young reveals details about Rommel's craftiness in launching attacks (like simultaneous Luftwaffe attacks to destroy minefields) despite being read in advance through Enigma or nagging supply shortages. Rommel displayed many characteristics of Chesty Puller, fearless USMC leader: leading in front; acts of personal courage; appreciation and affinity for enlisted personnel;a gentleman's code of honor. In the film biography, "The Desert Fox" all these characteristics are depicted with sparing details about his involvement in a plot to kill Hitler and his own demise. Desmond Young, again by post-war interviews, gives a lengthier summation of those events. By the end of this engrossing biography other German generals shine like General Fritz Bayerlein and General Speidel. Speidel, probably more guilty in the Hitler plot than Rommel, was able to escape the Gestapo net because of his academic gifts of a graduate degree and philosophical training, something that Rommel did not put much weight in. This biography illuminates this remarkable general,infantryman at heart, who escapes the infamy of the Nazi atrocities because of his personal code of honor and bravery. His notable contemporaries' accounts are mentioned that can only be worthwhile to any military historian as well. Rommel, no backroom general here, is merely courageous, invincible and resilient, not to be forgotten.

This book was really an easy read & very informative about a really honorable warrior. I just wish [ as did the author ] that he was on our side. Even his enemy [ British & American ] respected this man for his fighting abilities & honor in battle . He would not murder prisoners, but let them go if he couldn't take care of them . His prisoners ate what he & his men ate , he was not antisemite,[ unlike Patton ] hated National Socialism & the dreadful nazis . At first respected Hitler until returning from Africa & realizing the atrocities he was committing & actually confronted him about about them. I have been doing art for some years & never thought I would do artwork about a German Officer, but upon reading about Erwin Rommel, I was so impressed, I immediately upon finishing this book began a pencil sketch of him. And then to find of his tragic end,[ at the hand of the nazis ] having to commit suicide to protect his family from the evil of Nazism. Also his wife & son seem to be of excellent honorable quality also. It was a very exciting book & hated to stop reading it even for supper..LOL . The war battles in it are awesome & really keeps you excited with the action back & forth & while I certainly wanted our side to win, I couldn't help but deep down, out of respect for this wonderful warrior & honorable soldier to root for him & hope no harm wouls befall him. It's a book I plan on keeping on my shelf to read again someday.

This is such an excellent book! Anyone interested in Erwin Rommel, or WW2 history should read this. First, it was written shortly after the war when information was still fresh. The book is based on numerous personal interviews with the survivors who who had intimate knowledge of the Field Marshal. Tremendous contributions were made by Rommel's wife, and personal friends. What's more, the author was a senior officer in the 8th Army and had fought against the Afrika Korp. He had personal knowledge of several specific incidents and gave the perspective from Rommel's military adversaries. Much has been written about the Afrika Korp, but this book details incidents during WW1 and gives an in depth account of Rommel's involvement, or uninvolvement in the assassination attempt on Hitler. This was a very informative and interesting book.

Too one sided. Rommel was not the perfect warrior.
Excellent read for history buffs.
