Erwin Rommel with his son Manfred.
After the war, Manfred for many years was a mayor of Stuttgart. He tried to lead to reconciliation between Germans and their former enemies, befriended with the son of his father’s wartime adversary, Bernard Montgomery. He was on the liberal wing of the Christian Democratic Union, and got on well with Socialists in Stuttgart, where he promoted liberal and humanist causes. He once stated: “I fight better wars than my father, in a better cause.”
