Movie Details

Producer Charles Proser conducted interviews and investigated firsthand accounts from all over the world to tell the story of Irwin Rommel, the "Desert Fox," who was appointed Commander of the Channel Defenses by Adolf Hitler. Proser reveals that the same secrets that allowed Rommel to claw his way through the Axis ranks -- broken codes and deception -- also led to his ruin. General Rommel seemed virtually unstoppable in the critical battle for North Africa, but the British had a number of mystifying maneuvers to counter the Desert Fox. Charles Proser also produced The Ultra Enigma for the Secrets of War series. ~ Dennis Proctor, Rovi
