This film marks an influential contribution to the post-World War II myth established around Rommel's figure, one that highlights his military brilliance, opposition to some Nazi policies, and victim of Hitler. The film bridges a string of defeats at the end of Field Marshall Erwin Rommel's (1891–1944) military career, from El Alamein to his death-by-suicide mission. In between, Rommel continues to doubt Hitler, leading to his participation in a foiled conspiracy to assassinate him.
