A shame he had to die in such a horrible way. Well, at least he was remembered ^^

I'm really surprised this hasn't been made a Daily Deviation yet, because it totally deserves it. Erwin Rommel is arguably my favourite historical figure, and this picture definitely does the man justice. Lovely work, I love the detail! =D

This is a very good portrait of Rommel.

In my area there are many veterans who fought against the Afrika Korps at Tobruk an Tunisia. The amazing thing is that all of them respect Rommel as a soldier, and more importantly, as a gentleman in a time of bloody brutal war.
