Library Journal, October 1, 2006
"Though most people immediately connect Rommel with the Africa campaigns of World War II, he made his initial legendary giant steps during the First World War. In this 1935 title, he recalls his greatest battles, outlines how he won them, and provides his strategies on the use of armor in the field--lessons ultimately used by Patton and other Allied tank commanders to defeat him."
Military History, August 2007“Infantry Attacks reads like an adventure novel and became a 1930s bestseller that not only made Rommel rich, but also prompted Hitler to make him commander of his personal military bodyguard.”

(1) The pictures on the front are of wwii stuff, while this book is about wwi - Why??
(2) Rommel fought on the evil side in not just one, but two world wars
(3) He sounds like a not-very-nice chap
(4) It's obvious that there's a bit of self promotion going on here
I highly recommend this book. The man was clearly a military genius, and, I think this book gives you a bit of an insight into that. As an avid reader of military history, and a wargamer I was inspired by this.
Perhaps an interesting compare and contrast would be Slim's "Defeat into victory"Defeat Into Victory: Battling Japan in Burma and India, 1942-1945 as he was also a very talented general, who seems like a nice guy, fought on the right side and wasn't quite as big into self-promotion. Although Rommel was as fond of his Wurtemburgers as Slim was of his Gurkas...
Over all I would recommend buying Attacks, rather than this book
