American in Berlin Colour 5 2, 9:49pm

Just a note on historical accuracy: Benjamin would be a very unusual name for a German at this time. It sounds very odd, like a white anglo-saxon American of 1900 being called Pablo or Vladimir. Before WWII, basically only Jews had it as their first name (more precisely, it has only become fashionable for Gentiles since the 1980s; I'm called Benjamin myself). And it would be almost impossible to imagine a German general of Jewish descent at this time.
