Wartime Quote From Rommel Concerning Failure of Tiger Tank in Africa

Found this interesting clipping from a wartime US newspaper quoting Rommel in a conversation with a Japanese observer. Hope this will bring up some discussion.  Barron

Thanks Rich! Thought it was pretty interesting to see that degree of intelligence available to the public while the war was still in progress! Barron

Yes - Never saw this before, but just like today the newspapers kept the flow of 'news' from both sides going with quotes and propaganda, whichever way was most appropriate at the time.
Excellent!
