Ferdinand Heim was a world war II general in Hitler's army. He is particularly noted as being the scapegoat of Stalingrad. Heim, who was General Paulus's higher rank, was blamed for not breaking the Sixth Army out of Stalingrad. If Paulus had defied orders from Hitler, Heim would have not gone through with making a counter-offensive in the south-western border with the Romanian Army in Operation Winter Storm. Heim did not make an effective move mainly because of the Russian's greater strength in numbers holding opposing forces in position and the approaching winter weather (winter fog, blizzards, frost) grounding supplies. Heim and Hitler were on opposite ends and Heim has told his most trustworthy soldiers that he was Jewish. Although this was true, many scholars believe that the state of the army was to weak for any counter-offensive. ...more on Wikipedia about "Ferdinand Heim"
