Summary:
The legend of 'The Desert Fox' is threefold: he was a simple soldier who did his duty and knew nothing about Nazism; he as a commander of superlative talent who ran rings around the British in North Africa in 1941-2; he was a leader of resistance to Hitler who gave his life to the cause! Reuth shows that all three assumptions were false.
