German Field Marshals - World War Two

Can you name these German field marshals of World War Two?
I have left out the 'von' and Rommel is not here. All are army save two Luftwaffe.
I have learned how to utilise 'type ins' with such moderate success... it has made me a little more confident in myself vis-a-vis creating quizzes here. To celebrate my new-found albeit tortuous journey upon this path... I wish to share a little of my limited euphoria. All 'vons' are included. I have allowed Rommel his place... with a slight change. The answers for him are... his first name and his first divisional command.
