Erwin Rommel also known as the Desert Fox. He was a famous German Field Marshall of World War II. During the Second World war he commanded the 7th Panzer division during the invasion of France. Rommel is regarded as a chivalrous and humane officer because his Afrikakorps was never accused of any war crimes.
Approached in 1944 to join the plot to assassinate Hitler Rommel refused suggesting Hitler be arrested and brought to trial. Hitler discovered Rommel was plotting against him but because of his great prestige Hitler allowed him to commit suicide and promised him the protection of his family if he committed suicide rather than be tired and executed for high treason. Erwin Rommel took the honourable decision and the real reason for Rommel's death only emerged at the Nuremberg trials.
