Field Marshal Erwin Rommel was famous for his wacky tactics.
I know he once painted wooden logs to make them look like missiles to fool the english. (The french did something similar with fake tanks)
What else did he do?
>Russians built an entire fake Moscow out of plywood
No, they didn't. They just tried (unsuccessfully) to disguise the most important buildings with some plywood additions.
he's so wacky he didn't slay kikes and told his troops not to slay kikes when rolling around in north africa, then was forced to consume a cyanide pill for disgracing hitler hahaha
what a WACKY fella!!!
Nah, he was a Nazi that's the point of people overrating him
He's perpetrated by Nazi sympathizers or edgy teens trying to evoke a "Noble Nazi" image.
>"if not all Nazis wanted to kill jews then the National Socialist idealogy wasn't that bad! they even have awesome guys like erwin rommel, if rommel was a nazi then nazis are cool"
Rommel is an overrated general who certainly was aware of the slaughter going on. He's no Himmler, but he's just as culpable as any high ranking member. Perhaps he had a change of heart near the end that caused him to take out hitler, but that is ignoring years where he stood by and watched it happen
>He is without a doubt one of the best commanders of the war.
Please, Manstein, Guderian, Kesselring, Rundstedt, and Bock were all clearly better, and that's just counting multiple corps commanders in Germany.
