    one time forget where Rommel was in a plane he saw his tanks stopping, and dropped a note to the comander of the tanks and it said "if you don't keep moving, i am going to come down there personaly and kick you in the ass"

    Do you have a source for that? It sounds highly unlikely that this actually happened, seeing as Rommel tended to lead his own attacks near the front in an armoured car rather than in a plane above the battlefield (where he would be even more vulnerable).

    I think I also remeber reading about it. I believe it was supposed to have happened during the AK's first offensive in April 1941 near Derna or Mechilli.
