    Photos from the Captured German Records Collection, NARA II, College Park.

    All of them appear to be from September 1941.

    Great pictures thanks for sharing them. Always good to see the desert fox in photos, especially in Africa.

    I used the Neat Image Noise Reduction filter in PS CS on the above photo. It dramatically improved the image.

    Wonder if some of these were taken by Rommel himself. Göbbels gave him a camera and at least according to stories he took loads of pictures. Maybe a collection somewhere?? And not many photos of Rommel with the camera.

    Those are amazing pictures. The Desert Fox and his campaigns have always interested me
