General Albert Burkhalter passes away at the age of 97. Sure, he had the alias of Leon Askin, but he was truly General Burkhalter, the only General in the German Army during World War II, besides Rommel, who was competent. And, his skills did not end with military expertise. After the fall of Germany and capture by the Russians, General Burkhalter was able to gain a position within Soviet Broadcasting, as he displayed his excellent communication skills in providing the Russian news coverage of Airplane. First Rommel, then Montgomery, Patton, McArthur, Eisenhower, and now Burkhalter. There might not be any great military leaders left now. Where have you gone Werner Klemperer, a nation turns its lonely monocle to you.
