I'm learning so much here:
A) Rommel was a Nazi?
B) He supported Germany, murdered
Germany, and defended Germany?
A) All Officers in the German military took loyalty oaths. But Rommel appeared to be apolitical.
B)Rommel didn't murder anyone. The Afrika Korps never committed atrocities and Rommel never complied with any orders to ship Jewish French, or Jewish POWs to camps.
Rommel was killed by the Nazi party after he join the conspiracy to murder Hitler.
my bf in germany had this really bad-ass map that showed what germany considered to be "germany" during the war, including a chunk of africa.
It is funny to us now but in 1939 almost every country in Africa was owned by a European power. The only reason it isn't still being done, is because America wasn't much for colonization, and the old European powers didn't have the economic and military power to hold onto their empires anymore.
France tried to regain hers, but failed pretty miserably.
