Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review
Rommel's desert campaigns are brilliantly described
— Drew Middleton
Armor
Mitcham's prose is concise, yet descriptive. This compact book probes deeply into Rommel as a commander, soldier, leader, husband and citizen, providing a good picture of Rommel's personality, rather than giving us only a drab rundown of his battlefield exploits.
