I think just about anyone on this blog could come up with a better way of using the available German resources in France in 1944. Only one problem, we did not have Adolf Hitler for a boss.
Gotta remember a few points, first: Hitler retained personal control of all armored divisions in france and would not release control of them until he was sure where the invasion was to take place.
Second: Even when it was obvious to all the educated officers in Hitler's staff where the invasion was, he would still not release the 15th army that was around the Dieppe/Callais area.
Third: The reserves, as ordered by Hitler, were located too far away from the front to be effective. Since the allies had control of the air, nothing could move during the day. The reserves could have traveled much faster if they could have used the rail system, but that was in a shambles after the pre-invvasion air raids.
In the end, I like Rommel as a general, but have difficulty in seeing his political side to qualify for the proposed list in this thread. Darius, Alexander, Ceasar, Marlbarough and Churchill all have political or diplomatic accomplishments you can point to.
Where are Rommel's political accomplishments?
