Do you think this is Rommel?

Article about: It sure looks like Rommel to me - except for one thing. He is not wearing General's collar tabs. I guess it could be an older foto - before he was made a General. What do YOU think? Thanks

    I have lots of Rommel images, but I am just not sure. Something looks different to me. I have seen other Officers purported to be Rommel that clearly weren't him, including a guy in a Luftwaffe cap! Anybody else have an opinion?

    Not Rommel. Completely different profile and the shape of the ears is wrong, they are a good reference for identifying individuals as the basic shape remains the pretty much the same throughout life.

    I'd vote for 'no'.

    The mouth and chin area looks too different to any Rommel photos i've seen.

    I agree its the mouth and chin that do it for me too, so who is this guy?

    I don't know who he is, but he is being sold on ebay as Rommel. Thanks to all that confirmed what I was thinking, myself!
