Almost. The 62nd army commander mutated 2 letters from Zhukov to Zhuikov to Chuikov :wink:

And I think there was no "von" before Paulus. Ok it's a detail...

This is a very widespread historical error. You will find out that he didn't bear the "von".

What is that "von" anyway? Is it a title (decoration)?

As far as I know it is the German equivalent of the English "of" or the French "de". As in "Charles Prince of Wales" or "Edward Duke of Kent".

You're correct, Carol I.
Same situation for nagybányai Horthy Miklós, or Miklós Horthy of Nagybánya (Baia Mare). :)
