German field marshal (1891–1944) who earned the sobriquet “The Desert Fox” for his tactical genius as Commander of the Afrika Korps. In 1944 he was implicated in a plot to assassinate Hitler; given the choice of suicide or a trial, he ended his own life with poison. DS, in German, signed in black pencil “Rommel,” one page, 8 x 11.5, 1939. A document related to the “physical and psychological examination of flight officer cadets,” ordering a list of names of those to be examined and specifying various physical fitness ratings, the lowest of which is “unfit for piloting military aircraft.” Accompanied by a full translation. A few marginal wrinkles, otherwise fine condition. R&R COA.
