Rommel: Photographer Vol. 2

Rommel & His Men

by Zita Steele


Take a journey behind the camera of a world-famous military commander. Experience life on the frontlines with Field Marshal Erwin Rommel. View 200+ images from Rommel’s private photo collection, seized by U.S. forces in 1945. Join Rommel as he interacts with his German and Italian troops. See him and his men at work, at rest, and on the move. View Rommel’s mementos of his men and military leaders. This book provides a candid view of Rommel as an ordinary soldier rather than a general. The photos are digitally restored and enhanced for detail. Some are accompanied by Rommel’s own handwritten photo captions. Author and artist Zita Steele uses her knowledge of German language and culture, with in-depth research about Rommel and his campaigns, to provide context for the photos. Zita also analyzes patterns in Rommel’s photography to shed a unique light on the artistic personality of this notable military leader.
