Hi, does anyone knows the Hungarian generals behind Miklos Horthy and Walther von Brauchitsch? The picture was taken in September 1941.

Great! Thank you AJK. Is that Ferenc Szombathelyi with hand on the hip?

I don't think so. Szombathelyi was tall, which the officer in the photo is not.

Hi,

I don't think it is Gusztav Jany. Attached is a frozen shot of the General in the video, with a picture of Jany for comparison.
