This is possibly the most interesting and re-searchable 1870 Iron Cross 2nd Class document you will ever see.

GFM Herman von Eichhorn was assassinated in July 1918 while serving as commander of Army Group Kiev and at the same time as Military Governer of Ukraine.

A small overview of his carrier can be found on Wikipedia
