Summary
Rommel was a brilliant military tactician. Unfortunately, Adolph Hitler thought that he too was a military genius and demands more of Rommel than he's able to provide. Rommel incurs Hitler's wrath by retreating in North Africa, but since Rommel is a war hero he is virtually "untouchable". Rommel joins in a plot to assassinate the Fuhrer. The attempt fails, and Rommel's complicity is discovered. He is given a choice: either face a horrible death by torture or commit suicide. Rommel opts for the latter. The official story given to the press is that Rommel died heroically of his war wounds
