[Quote] Lt Gen Erwin Rommel

1941. North Africa.

Lt General Erwin Rommel
GOC Deutsches Afrika Korps

Rommel, never one to hold back with his thoughts, when asked his opinion on the Australian 9th Division opposing him in Tobruk had this to say;

“The toughest but least disciplined troops in North Africa".
