Erwin Rommel was an outstanding and an unconventional military leader with unique methods of command. Erwin Rommel is one of the few commanders, who was not involved in any war crimes. Rommel was highly respected by his enemies and was considered to be the last of the knights. During the North African Campaign, Rommel often cut the water rations of his troop, so that the prisoners of war could survive.

As usual, he is impeccably dressed with field jacket and breeches and uses a spotless pair of field glasses. Patton was always of the mind that being in a war did not negate the need for a soldier "to look like a soldier" although he did make a silent exception for front line troops.
