Rate this:
A gripping thriller dramatising the final campaign of the ?Desert Fox?. North Africa, 1943. Field Marshal Rommel of the German Afrikakorps is at the end of his tether. He's sick, defeated by General Montgomery and out of favour with Hitler. He decides to achieve one more victory over the ?new boys?, the Americans, who have just arrived in Tunisia. Veteran Oberleutnant Scharf leads the elite Brandenburger unit through the trackless desert to spring a surprise on the Americans, led by Anglophobe General Fredendall. The only man who might warn the Americans is Colonel Nichols, a very British ex-Oxford don. The ensuing battle is a rout. Rommel has his final victory ? only to be ordered to take poison by Hitler a year later.
