This work covers the Battle of Normandy from the point of view of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel from December 1943, until he was critically wounded on July 17, 1944, examining the effect the Desert Fox had on the toughening and evolution of the German defence in Normandy and elsewhere. It describes how and why Rommel's absence on D-Day significantly weakened the German reaction to the Allied landings, and how he temporarily checked, though he could not repulse, the Anglo-American invasion and ultimate victory. In addition, the work documents the reinforcements Rommel wanted to pour into Normandy in the six weeks prior to the D-Day landings, after he had analyzed the Allied bombing pattern and discovered that they were trying to make Normandy a strategic island - to isolate the battlefield.
