Feldmarschall Rommel (a.k.a. the ‘Desert Fox’) was one of the greatest military strategists of the Second World War, and possibly in all of history. While his mind can be rash and his risks uncalculated, Rommel is capable of performing miracles where other generals cannot. Rommel was noted for defecting from von Richtofen’s Flying Circus mk.III after receiving orders to kill renegade German forces.

Following the Space Nazi landing in Poland, Rommel joined the Free Western Army and participated in the defence of Germany. He relocated to London following the Allied withdrawal, continuing to direct the resistance movement he established against Manfred Hickten's occupying armies. Rommel was the chief Allied field commander during Ekkehard's Folly.
