  First World War.com - Who's Who - Max Hoffmann
Max Hoffmann (1869-1927), a brilliant strategist widely regarded as the architect of the German Eighth Army's sweeping victory at Tannenberg, and to a lesser extent at the Masurian Lakes, was born in Homberg an der Efze on 25 January 1869.
Hoffmann's fame primarily rests upon his brilliantly conceived strategy of double-enveloping the Russian Second Army, under Samsonov, at Tannenberg in August 1914, effectively bringing about its entire destruction.
Following these initial successes in the East Hoffmann was promoted to Oberst and attached to headquarters in Brest-Litovsk; his background in the East both prior to and during the early stages of the war rendered him the primary authority on Eastern matters.

Under the guidance of Hoffmann, Max Miedinger drew the new typeface and in 1956 it was released as Neue Haas Grotesk.
Hoffmann and Miedinger resisted the name change because it sounded like the Latin word for Switzerland, “Helvetia.” Stempel forced the name change and a star was born.

Busch shares the mischievous streak in Max and Moritz, and while his two young protagonists play rather violent tricks on the townspeople - a taylor almost drowns and a teacher gets his face burned from an exploding pipe - Busch himself plays the most violent trick on Max and Moritz.
