Favorite Military Leaders

I don't know much about him. He pops up in the literature, but he is not famous as other German Generals

Indeed he is an odd one in that he had some great successes, I would consider his leadership of Unternehmen Wintergewitter a major achievement given how understrength the force was and the conditions it took place in.
However, he also appears to have been prepared to follow Nazi racial philosophy.

My opinion his description would be a bad guy with an immense talent for his job which I suspect describes a lot of German leaders.
