One thing you can be sure of, is that Rommel was certainly not talking about egotistical blowhards.

"The only thing worse than underestimating your opponent is to over estimate your own worth".

It's no secret that Montgomery used non British (Idian, ANZAC, South African) troops to soften up the German defences so his men could achieve a much easier victory. (That is not to say his men were mediocre, they were in fact first class soldiers)

VDKMS....I am glad to hear that Monty used the Commonwealth troops rather than the British to fight in North Africa, still those rear areas must have been quite active as I lost five members of my family out there

Why these white guys(European) like to braging?
why the Australian didn't brag about it they can defeat the Japanese army solely without USA and China?

Only some like to brag. Read my answer immediately after his initial post.

It is a disgusting and un Australian habit.

Some of you people really make me wonder!! It's a direct quote from Feldmarschall Erwin Rommel, not Australian hubris. I can't help that he said it!! Get over it! And of course, Rommel would have known what he was talking about.

No one questioned Rommel or his reasoning, and no doubt you are well aware of that.

Boastfulness or seeking reflected glory, is a disgusting and childish habit, un befitting of a Serviceman and definitely un Australian,... or it was in my day.

Even the idiot Chinese Troll picked up on it.
