Which Historic General am I?





Not sure I'm happy about being compared to a Nazi general, but here ya go... (kudos to Jami for this one too!)

Erwin Rommel
You scored 53 Wisdom, 69 Tactics, 62 Guts, and 33 Ruthlessness!
You're most comparable to German Field Marshall Erwin Rommel in the fact that you have very strong tactical skills and morales. However, Rommel lost in Africa despite the fact that his logicians had told him time and time again that the English were planning to shut off his supply lines. Rommel lost North Africa, because the English shut off his supply lines. The moral of this story... Listen to your logicians. And guard your damn supply lines! But that being said, Rommel was one of the greatest strategic and tactical minds of our day. Had he overrun Egypt (which was a definite possibility at the time), World War II may have turned out significantly differently then it did.

Erwin Rommel entered the army in 1910 and rose slowly through the ranks. In 1939, Adolf Hitler made him a general. Rommel brilliantly commanded an armored division in the attack (1940) on France. In Feb., 1941, he took the specially trained tank corps, the Afrika Korps, into Libya. For his successes there he was made field marshal and earned the name “the desert fox.” In 1942 he pressed almost to Alexandria, Egypt, but was stalled by fierce British resistance and lack of supplies. A British offensive overwhelmed (Oct.-Nov., 1942) the German forces at Alamein (see North Africa, campaigns in ). Rommel was recalled to Germany before the Afrika Korps's final defeat. He was a commander in North France when the Allies invaded Normandy in June, 1944. Allied success led Rommel, who had lost his respect for Hitler, to agree to a plot to remove Hitler from office. Wounded in an air raid in July, he had just recovered when he was forced to take poison because of his part in the attempt on Hitler's life in July, 1944.

Other leaders like yourself include Patton and MacArthur.
