Give article an English name[edit]

Why does this article have a German title? Is there a style standard mandating this? I thought this was an English-language encyclopedia, and that articles should have English titles unless it would cause confusion. (I can see why the article on the Ivory Coast is called "Cote d'Ivoire", since the country's current leadership made a big deal out of insisting that no one should translate it, but the Nazis are not currently in power.)

If no one objects, I'm planning to move the article to German Army High Command. Then I'll make a note that OKH refers to the German term. --Uncle Ed (talk) 19:29, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
