baiting tanks into killing zones with anti-aircraft guns was pretty dirty.

Rommel was an overrated hack who should've never commanded more than a Division.

No such thing, especially when fighting Nazis

Wow he was absolutely terrible..

Well, aside from disobeying orders, and embarking on an insane offensive that he didn't have the logistical means to follow up on.

It was war

like every civilized military

He fought under a nazi government for part of an italian landgrab in a campaign that ultimately amounted to jack-shit.

Nobody treated prisoners well in ww2. There's cases of summary executions from every faction

Yeah. Military leaders should mutiny if they don't like the democratically elected head of government

I just finished Hans von Luck's memoirs from his time as a Panzer commander, I found these tidbits interesting regarding the North African theater and Rommel:

Rommel at one point said to von Luck that he wished that the western powers would stop fighting each other and turn their attention toward the east (i.e. Russia) where the real threat lay. However, he also said that he doubted that Germany would win the war and that Hitler could never rally Europe under his flag. In Rommel's view, the only warrior capable of rallying Europe under a united banner against the Bolshevists was Winston Churchill.

During most of the Desert fighting, von Luck was guarding the extreme right flank of the Axis (to the south). He developed a curious relationship with his counterpart on the opposing side, an unnamed british commander. von Luck often ordered his men to cease engagement at 1700 and return to base before it got dark. He noticed after awhile that his counterpart did the same.
One day the Germans captured a british scouting party. After 1700 hours that day, the British actually radio'd the Germans and asked if they'd seen Lt. Whatshisface and his men and if so, how were they. von Luck responded that they were all captured, alive and well and then the two sides agreed on a general ceasefire after 1700 each day. 1705 each day they would radio each other and discuss prisoners and other things. For instance, there was some trading of medicine's and cigarettes back and forth.

Interesting stuff... It didn't happen on the eastern front, that's for sure.

Well, russians and slavs in general are nothing but dirty peasants with no sense of honor or civility. So there's that..

When in Rome, do as the Romans do.

Pic related gets sent to North Afirca instead of Rommel, who gets sent to the Eastern Front in 1941.

How much longer does DAK hold out in Cyrenica?

Nice to know you discriminate against peoples of certain backgrounds though, truly fighting the good fight against anti-semitism and fascism.

I don't get what you're trying to say at all.
Somehow being half swedish excludes one from being an anti-semite?

Shitty M3 Grant/Lee tanks with their rivets flying throughout the interior after getting ass blasted by a 88mm they couldn't even see. Trying to angle that shitty hull 75mm gun but can't get in the right position.

As opposed to what Montgomery did at El Alamein with the 6 pounder guns against PZIIIs and IVs?

It's generally good tactics to lure your opponent's tanks into killzones with your fixed ATGs. And pretty much no tanks will do well in that situation, even the first tigers in North Africa were beaten by little atgs that couldn't even pierce the frontal armor.

Does anyone have the story about Rommel accidently going to a British camp, walking through it and being so polite he wasn't questioned, got on his bike and then left?

Naziism isn't a nationality, dude.

That's legitimate strategy, retard.
Dirty tricks would be poisoning food or water, using gases, etc. Baiting and destroying tanks just means you're better at war than your enemy.
