Michael Wittmann

Michael Wittmann was a German Waffen-SS tank commander during the Second World War. He is known for his ambush of elements of the British 7th Armored Division during the Battle of Villers-Bocage on 13 June 1944. While in command of a Tiger I tank, Wittmann allegedly destroyed up to 14 tanks, 15 personnel carriers and two anti-tank guns within 15 minutes before the loss of his own tank. The news was disseminated by Nazi propaganda and added to Wittmann's reputation.
Wittmann became a cult figure after the war thanks to his accomplishments as a panzer ace, part of the portrayal of the Waffen-SS in popular culture. Historians have mixed opinions about his tactical performance in battle. Some praised his actions at Villers-Bocage, while many others found his abilities lacking, and the praise for his tank kills overstated.
Although the number is disputed, he is credited with destroying 135 to 138 enemy tanks.

Army General Ing. Bohumír Lomský

Bohumír Lomský, born Bohumír Štěpán Lenc, was Chief of Staff of the 1st Czechoslovak Army Corps, a politician of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia, a postwar member of the National assembly of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic and the House of People of the Federal Assembly, and Minister of National Defence of Czechoslovakia.
During the war, to protect his family members in occupied Czechoslovakia from persecution, he chose the pseudonym Lomský. However, the Germans discovered this fact and his father and mother were arrested and sent to a concentration camp. They survived the war and were released in May 1945.
