With so much already written about WWII, one wonders why there’s a need for historical fiction such as Steven Pressfield's KILLING ROMMEL. After all, it’s hard to imagine stories more compelling than the ones we’ve already heard from this era. Despite this impediment, KILLING ROMMEL is a surprisingly fresh and entertaining story of Britain’s efforts to halt German Field Marshall Erwin Rommel's assault into North Africa and the Middle East. Alfred Molina gives a dynamic performance, combining an intense delivery with a flawless sense of timing. In addition, his accents and delivery are realistic and low-key, thus avoiding a formulaic or stereotypical performance that would detract from the story. Fans of Pressfield's earlier stories of ancient history will welcome his latest effort. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2009]
