Field Marshal Erwin Rommel (1891-1944), popularly known to both sides as the Desert Fox (Wüstenfuchs), somewhere in North Africa. (ca. 1942) Rommel is regarded as having been a humane and professional officer. His Afrikakorps was never accused of war crimes, and captured Allied soldiers were reported to have been treated humanely. In all theaters of his command, he ignored orders to kill captured commandos, Jewish soldiers, and civilians....
World War II was a horrible conflict, which engulfed much of the known world. Known as the Great War, this conflict killed as many as 75 million people, making it the most deadly war in all of human history.
I spent a summer researching and writing a fifteen page paper on this guy...Erwin Rommel, The Desert Fox, Commander of German forces in North Africa 1942. He treated prisoners humanely and refused to kill Jewish prisoners. Forced to commit suicide to save his family because of his part in an assassination attempt on Hitler.
Erwin Rommel was perhaps the most famous German Field Marshal of World War II. In '44, Allied troops were closing in on Rommel’s Corps & he ordered 4 SS divers to bury a German treasure within 6 steel ammunition boxes. The treasure supposedly is gems, gold & silver bullion & is located in an sea cave off the east coast of Corsica. In '07, historians & treasure hunters looking at a photo with a code to the treasure's location. They're sure that they are close to finding it.
