The Rommel Papers
The Rommel Papers
By B. H. Liddell Hart
Harcourt, 1953, 545 pp

Whether Rommel was one of the "great captains" may be debated, but certainly he had the power of capturing the imagination of his opponents as well as of his countrymen. This translation of his papers is an important contribution to his biography and also contains a final chapter, by his son, on his death, and a running commentary by Captain Liddell Hart.
