In 1944 Adolf Hitler appointed Rommel as the commander of German forces positioned to oppose any Allied cross-channel invasion of the French coast. In October of 1944 Rommel was linked to a conspiracy to assassinate Adolf Hitler but because of his status as a national hero Hitler eliminated him by secretly forcing him to commit suicide with cyanide pills in return for assurances that his family would be safe. Field Marshal Rommel was given a state funeral and it was announced that he had died from injuries received from an earlier strafing of his staff car in Normandy by Allied planes.
