Erwin Johannes Eugen Rommel [1891 1944] popularly known as the Desert Fox was a German Field Marshal of World War II. Rommel began his military career in 1911 and was a highly decorated officer during World War I. During World War II he distinguished himself as a commander of the 7th Panzer Division during the 1940 invasion of France and earned the nick-name''Desert Fox'' for his leadership of German and Italian forces in the North African campaign in which he repeatedly forced back British and American assaults. In 1944 Adolf Hitler appointed him as the commander of German forces positioned to oppose any Allied cross-channel invasion of the French coast. In October of 1944 he was linked to a conspiracy to assassinate Adolf Hitler but because of his status as a national hero Hitler eliminated him by secretly forcing him to commit suicide with cyanide pills in return for assurances that his family would be safe.
Field Marshal Rommel was given a state funeral and it was announced that he had died from injuries received from an earlier strafing of his staff car in Normandy by Allied planes. The display is centered around an outstanding colorized military image [7.50 x 10.00] of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel.
Mounted below his image is his autograph which is signed''Rommel'' in blue graphite pencil on a page. The page measures 5.00 x 1.50 inches and was removed from a document and is in fine condition.The autograph has been authenticated by JSA Authentication and will be accompanied with the above Letter of Authenticity.

The plaque contains a quote from the Field Marshal and reads as follow,''Erwin Rommel The Desert Fox'' November 15, 1891 - October 14, 1944''Don't fight a battle if you don't gain anything by winning''.
