Both of you seem to miss the point regarding Rommel's leadership.

When he arrived in N Africa he had 2 choices. Go on the defensive or offence. If he went defensive he would be giving every advantage in the world to the Brits. It would have been simple mathematics for the British to use their numerial and material superiority to steamroller over the Germans and their erstwhile allies the Italians.

Or he could take advantage of mobility against a plodding opponent. He chose to go on the offense keeping the Brits off balance. Even when they seized the advantage he was quick to find a way to reverse a temporary setback and go on the offensive.

His defeat lies more in the realm of logistics and the advantage the Britsh had with Enigma. They go together as they allowed the British to concentrate on his supply lines at the critical moments.

The greatest--NO WAY. That would only happen when little 5'6" me gets into the ring with Mohammad Ali at his prime and takes him out in less than a minute.
