Knight's Cross: A Life of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel
Knight's Cross: A Life of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel by David Fraser. Published by Harper Collins, dated 1994. Contains several black & white photographs and maps. ISBN 0-06-01822-9, LOC 93-43832
David Fraser's book brings to Rommel's career not only the perceptions of an acclaimed biography, but those of a distinguished soldier too: his insights into Rommel's mind and methods carry the authority of experience. He shows how inspiringly spontaneous and superficially haphazard Rommel's style of leadership could be.
An in-depth biography of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel written with the cooperation of Rommel's son, by a renowned military analyst and historian who is himself a general.
