Thank you guys. 

#3 could be General der Infanterie Kuno von Steuben?

The Headquarter of the Army moved to Prilep on 5 October 1916 until the retreat to Hungary in September 1918.

In That period of time Gen. von Steuben was Commander of the Army (from 5 June 1917)

I think it will be the same... Zhekov, Jakow, Shekow. All the same pronounciation (it depends on the language...)
