Rommel, the Desert Fox, was forced out of North Africa after his defeat at the Second Battle of El Alamein (1942) and the landing of Allied troops in Morocco and Algeria. He returned to Germany and, by early 1944, was implicated in a plot to kill Hitler and was given the option for public trial or suicide. He chose to commit suicide and died by cyanide pill on October 14, 1944.
