(1891 - 1944) German field marshal whose Afrika Corps threw back repeated British and American assaults in North Africa, later he defended Normandy and ultimately was forced to commit suicide due to his implication in the Hitler bomb plot. Fine content T.L.S. on his personal "Oberst Rommel" letterhead with holograph corrections, 1p. 4to., Weimar, May 24, 1938 to Finnish Capt. Sulo Susi in Helsinki. In part: "...Thank you very much for your letter and your interest in my book 'Infantry Attacks'...the negotiations with my publisher have led to the desired result. I wish him quite a good success with your work...and I would like to thank Capt. Wolf Halsti for his extraordinary greetings...with Heil Hitler..." A few marginal stains, else very good. Sulo Susi had translated Rommel's book on tactics into Finnish. These same tactics would doubtless later be used by the Finns against the Russians!
