“Both sides, indeed, successively provided an object lesson in the cost and futility of the “direct approach” – the offensive spirit unguided by subtlety of mind.”  (Rommel, 1953, p.307).

Field-Marshal Erwin Rommel (the Desert Fox), World War I junior officer and World War II General, considered a brilliant military commander; adored by his troops and feared by his enemies.
