German General Erwin Rommel However, many don't know that Lt-General Erwin Rommel arrived in Africa in February 1941 with the advance units of the Deutsches Afrika Korps (DAK) he was officially reported to the Italian Command (Commando Supremo). He was given command of the Italian XX Corps under the command of General Gariboldi's Italian 5th Army. The Italian Command gradually gave General Rommel the command of the 5th Army. It wasn't until 2 December, 1941, that Hitler promoted Rommel to Field Marshal, thus making him the technically the ranking commander over the Italians.
