Erwin Rommel

Erwin Rommel

Erwin Johannes Eugen Rommel (November 15, 1891 CE – October 14, 1944 CE) was a citizen and prominent military officer of Germany on Old Earth.

In 1903 PD, Admiral Raoul Courvosier wondered if the quote about the general who makes the last mistake losing was used by Wellington, Rommel, or Tanakov.[1](HH2)

The admiral seems to refer to "Victory goes to the player who makes the next-to-last mistake", which is a quote attributed to both Charles de Gaulle and Polish-French chess grand master Savielly Tartakower, the latter of whom may also have inspired the proverb "He who makes the last mistake loses" often used by chess players.
