Currently unavailable for purchase



Johannes Erwin Eugen Rommel (15 November 1891 – 14 October 1944) was one of the most famous German field marshals of World War II. He was the commander of the Deutsches Afrika Korps and also became known by the nickname “The Desert Fox” for the skillful military campaigns he waged on behalf of the German Army in North Africa.

Rommel’s military successes earned the respect not only of his troops and Adolf Hitler, but also that of his enemy Commonwealth troops in the North African Campaign. An enduring legacy of Rommel’s character is that he is also considered to be a chivalrous and humane military officer in contrast with many other figures of Nazi Germany. more

Black and white conte pencil on brown paper. Drawn from a famous photograph taken of him during WWII, original photographer unknown.

    Excellent drawing, your skills with the pencial are unsurpassed. I also liked reading about Rommel especially his battles with Montgomery and Patton. A terrible time brings men or indeed women of history.

  • Thank you Philip! His was an interesting story, for sure.
