Desert Fox

Publisher: Regnery History • March 12, 2019 • 320 pages

Desert Fox is the strange and fascinating life of Erwin Rommel, from his days as a youth in Imperial Germany—when he had a child out of wedlock with an early girlfriend—through his lauded military exploits during World War I to his death by suicide during World War II, after he attempted a failed coup against Hitler.  Rommel was a man of contradictions, a soldier who wrote a bestselling book about World War I, a commander who went from commanding Hitler’s bodyguard to trying to kill him, a serious military mind who was known for participating in practical jokes.

In Desert Fox, Dr. Samuel Mitcham (Vicksburg: The Bloody Siege that Turned the Tide of the Civil War) confronts the truth about Rommel and takes a close look at his military actions and reflections.
