The word comes from the name of a man called Irwin Rommel. He was one of the best generals of all time, and a Nazi commander. He was very loyal during the beginning of World War 2. As everything progressed and Hitler became more and more demanding, he knew something needed to be done. He got involved with a hit plot against. This plot failed, and Rommel was executed by suicide pill, yet he had full honors at his funeral. The only reason he got full honors was so no one knew of his crimes, because that would be embarrassing to the Nazi party.
