Johannes Erwin Eugen Rommel was born in November 15th, 1891 in Southern Germany at Heidenheim. Rommel was a highly decorated officer during World War I and rose to field marshal in the Wehrmacht (Defence Force) of Nazi Germany in World War Two.
In the events of We Happy Few, after Adolf Hitler dies from an illness, Rommel takes his place as the new Füehrer of the newly established Second German Empire.
Rommel was most likely executed afterwards depending on who captured him as it is unknown if Rommel even was in Germany, given that the entirety of Germany was occupied before the Wehrmacht surrendered.
- In real life, Erwin Rommel was forced to commit suicide after implications had been made that he took part in the failed assassination attempt on Adolf Hitler, 20th July 1944.
