I'm reading a book by Gordon Corrigan called "Blood Sweat and Arrogance: The Myth of Churchill's war" and in it he makes the point that Rommel is the only Third Reich Commander that the Bundeswehr acknowledges from its past. I think this is strange considering that he Commanded Hitler's Bodyguard and was very close to Hitler. My point is this: Given that all the German Generals (Rommel included ) were tainted by the Regime, who else do you think that the Bundeswehr should acknowledge from a purely military point of view? A good question to start Friday off methinks!!!
