The Rommel Mission - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 0978515897

[SR: 9982890], Paperback, [EAN: 9780978515898], River Road Press, River Road Press, Book, [PU: River Road Press], River Road Press, The story of the Rommel Mission begins, in a sense, in my childhood. Listening to my dads stories of his World War II service as a combat infantryman on Okinawa kindled an interest within me that never wavered. It was the adventure that first attracted me, and I devoured all the information on the war I could lay my hands on. By high school, books such as Churchills six volume history of the war, the Rommel Papers, and others were duly digested. However at this time, the war became more personal. My brothers service in Vietnam, a friend returning stateside disabled, and my cousins bronze star, awarded posthumously for the saving of the members of his squad, all conspired to make war more personal, and poignant. When, as an adult, I came to live in England, World War II came alive for me. There the war is a much more immediate memory, and the gratitude of the common people for the crucial American contribution is still felt. Communicating this to my uncle, who fought under Patton through France, Belgium, Luxembourg, and ultimately, Germany, resulted in tears over what was, for him, the memory of the most painful, and the most significant, time of his life. It was at that moment I wondered, did his life have to take this turn? The Rommel Mission is an attempt at an answer. The time of the Normandy invasion was a confusing and disconcerting time for the Germans. While the mission of the Allies was clear, the liberation of Europe from the barbarism of Nazism, the goal on the other side was not so obvious, or moral. Indeed, notions of patriotism and loyalty clashed with their repugnance at serving an evil regime, and the near certainty of their eventual defeat in battle. Rommels own thoughts on the matter seem equivocal. Was he or was he not attempting to end the madness? Without a doubt he knew he was pursuing a lost cause, but was he going to take the final step, that of delivering his command to the Allies? There are hints that this is indeed the case, but alas, incontrovertible evidence does not exist. Subversive plots, after all, are seldom committed to paper. The very nature of a conspiracy determines that records will not be kept. However, Hitler himself became convinced that his armies in the West were preparing to lay down their arms, recalling Rommels successor to his headquarters to answer for it. Rather than face this, Kluge committed suicide. Likewise, Rommel gave up his life. History leaves the question tantalizingly unanswered., 9332129011, Military, 10177, Historical, 10134, Genre Fiction, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10195, War, 10134, Genre Fiction, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 9822, United States, 9823, African American, 9857, Asian American, 9882, Classics, 524198, Anthologies, 2160, Drama, 9926, Hispanic, 16004731, Humor, 9955, Native American, 9966, Poetry, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

This historical novel, set in France at the time of D-day, deals with the fictional Major Helder, an officer on the staff of Rommel's headquarters. Working to defeat the Allied invasion, he witnesses the failure of the army to prevent its initial success, and the many difficulties in holding the Allies to the beachhead. Although he expects Rommel to somehow master the crisis, he soon realizes the Field Marshall himself doesn't believe in victory. Indeed, the major becomes caught up in a plot This historical novel, set in France at the time of D-day, deals with the fictional Major Helder, an officer on the staff of Rommel's headquarters. Working to defeat the Allied invasion, he witnesses the failure of the army to prevent its initial success, and the many difficulties in holding the Allies to the beachhead. Although he expects Rommel to somehow master the crisis, he soon realizes the Field Marshall himself doesn't believe in victory. Indeed, the major becomes caught up in a plot to turn over the German Armies in the West to the Allies. It is the only way, Rommel believes, of safeguarding Germany from eventual domination by the Soviet Union. The novel chronicles the many factors leading up to this event, and speculates on a possible outcome, all against the constant background of fighting a losing battle in the killing grounds of Normandy. Although the main character is fictional, many of the persons surrounding him are factual. Indeed, the major events of the novel are historically accurate, telling the story of D-day from the perspective of the Germans. The speculative premise, that of an attempted surrender of the German army in France, was discussed by Rommel and others. Hitler himself suspected it, even to the point of having Rommel's superior, Von Kluge, arrested for it. What is speculative is the major's role in actually carrying it out. However, it is possible such an attempt was made. If so, the fog of war has thoroughly obscured it. Books, Fiction~~Historical, The-Rommel-Mission~~Ken-Kreckel, , , , , , , , , , Red Engine Press
