    While on my trip back to Germany last month, I made a side trip out to the site where Rommel was forced to commit suicide and to his grave.

    Here are some pics. This was the first time I visited it since I was at the ceremony for the 50th anniversary of his death.

    Thanks for the pictures, Chris.
    Come to think about it - it was exactly 70 years last month.
