In contrast to this dissertation, the Allied Generals Mark Clark, Patton and Bradley may have captured and consumed quantities of Scotch, London gin, rum (rhum) and cognac that are believed to have been a prized war bounty of German General Field Marshal Erwin Rommel.Once numbering one and a half million liters, the remaining treasures of this Rommel liquor are in collections across America and Europe. Each bottle had a small booklet attached that noted the history of these spirits.

This history was written in 1976 by an Army colonel who traced this large quantity of liquor back to the desert fighting in Africa between the Allied and Axis forces. Field Marshal Rommel shipped it to Anzio, Italy where it was captured and bottled by the Americans. The Americans sent it by train to Linz, Austria and stored it in wine caves on the Danube River.At the end of the war, it was forgotten and remained in the wine caves for 32 years before being discovered by a Danish businessman.

He contacted the military post exchanges and asked them to sell it, thus the history was created by the Colonel to verify its authenticity.Sales skyrocketed as military personnel purchased it in the belief it really did belong to Rommel or the belief that the whole story might be a fake and fraudulent thus giving value to more than one million liters of liquor.A one-liter bottle of this Scotch was purchased in 1976 and has remained unopened in a winerack for more than two decades.

Yet, its hand blown bottle, antique label, and a tiny booklet, yellowed by time, cast a mystique sense of importance and value. This attached booklet was written by an Army Colonel and proclaims a message of a Legend of lost liquor.Robin Royce Reddington became intrigued when he read this history and was determined to find the Colonel. The Colonel was eventually located and provided information and a quandary whether or not the liquor dated to the African campaign in 1941-1943.Ross Wilson, Robins neighbor, hosts drinking, storytelling parties. Several World War two veterans came forth to tell about war experiences and how each of them came into contact with this Rommel liquor.

Knowledge of the discovery of the liquor emerged in Micks Cafe Americain in the free French Protectorate City Casablanca, Morocco (parallels the movie Casablanca) and continued to Italy, Austria, Germany and to the prisoner of war camps in lower Alabama.This light hearted saga ended at a dinner party given for many of the book characters and Robins friends who bet that the Colonel will or will not be present to personally confirm or deny this saga, A legend of lost liquor. The Colonel provided the final answer.
