Today I learned that the British called us Maltese non whites during their time colonizing and destroying our Latin Culture...

No, in fact a few mins in the doc I asked myself whether there were many who fought in both wars... and survived.

But Rommel didn't?!

With Hitler basically calling everyone to weapons it is highly likely that numbers are pretty high... Famous ones? Not so much...
Also, not everyone rode atop his armies like Rommel

Yeah Rommel was executed as he was part of the plot to assassinate Hitler right?

He was forced to commit suicide to 'preserve his honor' and protect his family. One of the most overestimated military commanders ever, though (same goes for Montgomery, Zhukov and McArthur. They were mainly inspirational icons to be honest). As a tactician he was solid, but on the higher operational level not even near the likes of Manstein, Guderian, Konev or Rokossovsky...

Thanks to the British wartime propaganda, constructed in an effort to make struggle and eventual victory in Africa more important, both him (the concept of a worthy, formiddable foe) and Montgomery were romanticized quite heavily.

Oh yeah, I "skipped" that "executed" - it was in fact kind of a suicide...

I don't agree with you though Hardrade... He is still held in high regard in Germany - in fact he was against the plan to hold back tank units behind the front before the Allied landing in Normandy... They were of no use there later because of the blatant superiority of the Allies in air...
