Course Summary

German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel’s claim to fame is his World War 2 African campaign that earned him the nickname ‘Desert Fox’. But what is less known is that he also takes credit for one of the most notable German victories in World War 1; the battle of Caporetto. How did it happen and why his role was disputed will be explained by the author of the book ‘Erwin Rommel’s Blue Max – or just what did Rommel do to deserve the highest German military medal.
