Lot 386

(1891-1944) German Field Marshal of World War II. Wartime D.S., Rommel, in bold pencil, one page, 4to, n.p., n.d., in German. The printed document is issued by Rommel in his capacity as Commanding Officer of the German Afrika Corps and commences by stating that he is no longer able to send personal replies to the messages of good wishes which he receives from Germany, continuing, in part, 'The daily army communique….gives you an account of what has been accomplished by the troops entrusted to me. These accomplishments are enormous. The tremendous heat by day, the cold by night, the eternal sand and dust, and not least the stern battles over a wide area, partly in difficult terrain, unceasingly impose the greatest demands on every soldier of the Afrika Corps. The special bulletins provide youwith confirmation that we are meeting the demands on us, and have the will to perform the tasks given to us by the Fuhrer, until the last enemy is killed….' A document of excellent content. Lightly mounted at the corners, otherwise VG ]

Estimate: £400 - 500
