“Armed with a pitch-fork, the finest fighting man can do little against an opponent with a tommy-gun in his hands.” (Rommel, 1953, p.333).
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.
