The incredible story of how legendary German general Erwin Rommel spared the life of a captured British soldier and then served him a glass of beer has been revealed after 70 years.
Captain Roy Wooldridge met Rommel after being taken prisoner in a dangerous night-time mission to examine submerged mines along the French beaches weeks before the D-Day landings.
His story is to be told on BBC1's Antiques Roadshow this Sunday.
