Manfred Rommel

Posted: March 23, 2015 in Great Human Beings

in 1979, Manfred Rommel was introduced to the 2nd Viscount Montgomery of Alamein, son of the commander of the Eighth Army (who had died three years previously). The pair found that they had much in common. Not only were they both only children of celebrated military leaders, but they were also almost exact contemporaries.

By then Manfred Rommel was four years into a 21-year term as a highly respected mayor of Stuttgart. The two men struck up an immediate friendship and over the course of the next 30 years maintained a correspondence.M+M
