Generalfeldmarschall Walter Model (1891-1945) was considered the best German General of WW2. He was a fanatical Nazi and hated by his men. He was completely ruthless and spared no lives in his plans to stabilize the crumbling German armies and everywhere he was told to lead he worked miracles. The loss of the Remagen Bridge signed the death warrant for the German Army in the west and instead of facing war crimes charges, he drove into the woods and shot himself in the head.
