"A vivid, balanced and frequently enthralling biography of Rommel, the general and the man. It is must reading for every aficionado of modern military history." -San Francisco Chronicle

Erwin Rommel's instinct for battle and leadership places him among the great commanders of history. In this definitive biography, David Fraser, an acclaimed biographer and distinguished soldier, looks at Rommel's career and shows how wild and superficially undisciplined Rommel's bold style of leadership could be, and how it inspired the men under his command to attack with ferocity and pursue with tenacity--qualities that served him well in his great battles in the North African desert and throughout his entire military career. Fraser also thoroughly explores the question of Rommel's possible involvement in the plot against Hitler and the reason for his forced suicide, even though there was no criminal evidence against him.

Revealing his failings as well as his genius, Knight's Cross is a fascinating biography of a soldier whose distinguished career has become a part of history.
