And I know this appears to contradict real history.

But then this is not real history, is it?

2022-02-22 Rerun commentary: Hauptmann is a rank used in the German army, usually considered equivalent to a captain. Of course before he became a Kolonel, Haken was a Hauptmann.

This reminds me of the old joke:

Q: What was Captain Hook called before he got his hook?
A: Captain Hand.

However, Kolonel Haken was not previously known as Hauptmann Hände.
