Field Marshal Erwin Rommel Field Marshal Erwin Rommel Jr was born on November 15th 1891 in the town of Heidenheim His father Erwin Johannes Eugen Rommel Sr was the local schoolmaster Erwin Rommel Jr was one of five children to be born in his family although his one brother Manfred died early in life His father died suddenly in 1913 and his mothers Helena lived on until 1940 just long enough to see her second son become a Major General Microsoft Online Encarta Encyclopedia 1997 The Rommel family had little to no military history They were only a simple respectable Swabian family with an average income and they did not have any ties or any influential friends in military circles This was strange considering Erwin Rommels military success since most of the high-ranking officers within the German military usually were born into military families or had aristocratic ties By the age of 19 Rommel joined the 124th Infantry Regiment at Weingarten and in March of 1911 he was posted to the War Academy in Danzig While he was at the War Academy Rommel would eventually meet his future wife Lucie Mollin Also while he was at the War Academy in 1912 Rommel would study hard and be promoted to a 2nd Lieutenant and he soon returned to the 124th Infantry Regiment Erwin Rommel was never physically a big man but his immense stamina made up for his lack of girth Erwin Rommel Jr remained complacent in his personal life he neither drank nor smoked and was not one for the local nightlife he was by all means a family man The Field Marshal would always approach everything he did seriously and determined and his demeanor would reflect this He would also never really enter into any discussions but would rather sit back and take in what was being said In March of 1914 Rommel would be assigned to the Field Artillery Regiment in Ulm
