Erwin Rommel was one of German's most popular generals during World War II, and gained his enemies' respect with his victories as commander of the Afrika Korps. Called "the People's Marshal" by his countrymen, he was one of Adolf Hitler's most successful generals and one of Germany's most popular military leaders. He led the German army admirably but became embittered when his supplies were cut off forcing him to surrender most of his entire army.
Early in 1944, several of Rommel's friends approached him regarding a plot to depose Hitler. Agreeing to aid them in February, he wished to see Hitler brought to trial rather than assassinated. In the wake of the failed attempt to kill Hitler on July 20, Rommel's name was betrayed to the Gestapo. Due to Rommel's popularity, Hitler wished to avoid the scandal of revealing his involvement.
As a result, Rommel was given the option of committing suicide and his family receiving protection or going before the People's Court and his family persecuted. Electing for the former, he took a cyanide pill on October 14. Rommel's death was originally reported to the German people as a heart attack and he was given a full state funeral.
