No German military leader of World War Two has a greater reputation than Erwin Rommel. Such was his perceived threat to Hitler and the Nazi hierarchy that on October 14th, 1944, he was pushed to commit suicide rather than face a trial for alleged involvement in the plot to assassinate the Führer.

Seventy five years on from his death James Holland and Al Murray assess Rommel’s war time record and debate the truth of his reputation as an apolitical and decent man.
