Iron Cross in Southern VictoryEdit
Colonel Irving Morrell noticed that Heinz Guderian's orderly wore the Iron Cross 1st Class, which suggested that he'd done something remarkable during the Great War. However, the orderly had already been indiscreet with anti-Semitic comments about Ike Horwitz, Morrell's Jewish aide-de-camp, and so Morrell had little reason to like him.
Iron Cross in The War That Came EarlyEdit
While Lt. Hans-Ulrich Ridel was pleased to be awarded the Knight's Cross, he did complain that his tail gunner, Sgt. Albert Dieselhorst, should also get something. Col. Steinbrenner replied that he had a second box with an Iron Cross, First Class for Dieselhorst and asked sarcastically "Does that suit you, your Excellency?" Embarrassed, Ridel mumbled "Yes, sir".
