Storyline

Plot Summary

In November 1943 Hitler moves Rommel and his Army Group B headquarters to Normandy. The task is the defense of the French coast against the long-anticipated Allied invasion. In Normandy, Rommel notices the incomplete state of the defensive fortifications, the slow pace of constructing the Atlantic Wall, and the lack of preparedness of the defending units mostly comprised of poorly-trained conscripts. Appalled by this Rommel urges his troops to hasten the pace of the Atlantic Wall construction and he begs the German High Command to place more veteran battle-hardened divisions under his command. He especially wishes to have panzer divisions and SS divisions at his disposal for a powerful counter-attack against Allied landings. Hitler refuses to release the vital panzer divisions to Rommel's command and to make matters worse, Rommel gets wind of a possible assassination plot against Hitler. Written by nufs68

Trivia After his father's death, Manfred Rommel was conscripted to the paramilitary work service until his desertion and capture by the French First Army in April 1945. After the war, Manfred Rommel studied law at the University of Tübingen. In 1974 he was elected mayor of Suttgart and began a much-publicized friendship with U.S. Army Major General George S. Patton IV, the son of his father's World War II adversary, George S. Patton. He was also friends with David Montgomery, the son of Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery. See more »
Goofs The movie starts with a car traveling through the woods and it shows the date October 14, 1944 in Germany. By the color of the leaves, all green, it looks like the middle of the summer and not the autumn in October at all. See more »
