    possibly Hermann Goring. Erwin Rommel was just one of the leading generals (although also the most popular German general in WW2 both among the German population and Allied commanders). Goring, however, was No. 2 in the Third Reich for a long time, although he lost more power between 1938-1941 and 1945 entirely to Bormann (and to some extent to Himmler and Goebbels). Goering was the most popular Nazi among the German people of Hitler's top aides.

    Here were the highest ranking Nazis:

    1) Adolf Hitler- leader of Germany.

    2 Heinrich Himmler- commander of the SS

    3) Hermann Göring - President of the Reichstag and supreme commander of the German Air Force

    4) Joseph Goebbels - Chancellor of Germany and minister of propaganda.

      Wrong.  Goering was #2 to Hitler.  By a 1941 Decree, he was to take over if Hitler died.  This was reversed by Hitler in April '45.  He was President of the Reichstag, leader of the Luftwaffe, & senior officer of the Armed Forces.  Himmler was lower than Goebbels.

    Goering was praised at first but lost influence when he failed to beat the British in the battle of Britain and later when he made himself look foolish when he said that leffwaffe could on supply the troops and the eastern front with supplies and failed . Rommel was praised due to his command in north Africa, and afterwards for the work he did to reinforce the Atlantic wall defence's in northern France. He lost influence and was later forced to commit suicide after his involvement in a failed a assassination on Hitler was discovered.

    Goring was of higher rank. Rommel was a Field Marshal of which there were a number. Goring was Reich Marshal, of which there was only one and who ranked highest in the military.

    This is like asking who ranked higher in the Obama administration: Biden or Hillary Clinton.

    Goring.  He was a Reichsmarschall, which made him senior to Rommel, who was a Generalfieldmarschall.

    Goring. The Nazi's forced Rommel to commit suicide in order to save his family.

    rommel was a field officer commanding the panzars and was not in hitlers good books after saying-- If I had a battalion of Australian soldiers , I could take over the world

    Hitler was not impressed by that statement
