Ivan Danilovich Chernyakhovsky (Russian: Иван Данилович Черняховский; born 29 June 1907) is an Army General and current Chairman of Gorky.

In-Game Description

Ivan Danilovich Chernyakhovsky has had his soul snuffed out by the blaze of the Russian Anarchy - yet he can count himself among the lucky ones. This wasteland has done far worse.

His transformation began during the West Russian War, when Ivan Chernyakhovsky commanded the Eighth Army. In those days, Chernyakhovsky was a cheerful commander. When Gavrilov began his retreat, Chernyakhovsky pulled back to Gorky, tearing across the rising chaos of Russia.

Yet the nation he returned to was as lost as the territory he escaped. The people had become deluded with reaction, jeering at the Red Army. Communists were tearing the stars off their suits and goose-stepping with fascists and capitalists. By the time he reached Gorky, there was nothing left in Chernyakhovsky but anger - towards the Germans that destroyed his home, and the Russians that betrayed it.

Trapped in Gorky, all that guides Chernyakhovsky is bitterness and duty. With Russia lost, he has focused his attention on weakening the Reich with his remaining forces. The battle with Germany is the last hope for Communism - it must be continued, despite the cost.
