I have been reading Ian Kershaw's Hitler 1936–1945: Nemesis. At a certain point, he writes: “On 16 October, the ‘3rd White Russian Front’, led by General Ivan Tscherniakowski, had broken through into East Prussia as far as Nemmersdorf, Goldap”. Who was this General Ivan Tscherniakowski? I did a Google search, of course, but all the results seem to be related with Kershaw's book.
