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, the Desert Fox, was the German Field Marshal of WWII in North Africa. He was respected by both his troops and enemies. He is regarded as being both a humane  & professional officers. Because of his connection to the conspirators to kill Hitler he was forced to choose between suicide, that protected his family or a trial that would harm his family. Rommel chose suicide by cyanide pill.
