Who was 'said' was going to be appointed to replace Jodle as the chief of the Army Command Staff?
According to Beevor, Paulus 'heard' that he was to replace Jodl. Unfortunately Beevor does not provide a reference for this. I'm not sure to what extent Jodl's position was genuinely under threat. After all, Hitler was to stick with Jodl through darker days than those of September 1942.
Anyway, I think the answer you're looking for is Paulus.

OK - another 'name that general' question

Identify a Soviet general who was promoted twice in the second half of 1942, was promoted again a year later, was demoted six months after that, was promoted back again after a further six months, and was made a Hero of the Soviet Union a couple of weeks after the war's end.

Some clues - he spent much of the war in command of Soviet units operating against the southern fringe of the Ostheer, though he was, briefly, appointed to a command position north of the Pripyat Marshes, and he was involved in the Berlin offensive though not as a combat unit commander.

This I think is General Ivan Yefimovich Petrov, who commanded at Odessa, Sebastopol and along the Kuban coast.

Gosh, I'd forgotten all about this, and so has everyone else by the look of it.
A clue: it's in the capital of a country which was not a country before the war, or after the war, but was during the war, and is now again.

Your hint was good, so it is The Holocaust Memorial in Bratislava, Slovakia.
