I'd really like to know what some of the characters looked like in the Southern Victory Series.
Feel free to use photos of actors.

Yes.One idea I've been considering in relation to General Morrell is that he ought to look like one of the actors cast to play Rommel, rather than the man himself - a pronounced "Family Resemblance" but not an exact doppelgänger.

We can't think of Irving Morrell without thinking of this guy.
Oh my god, if they ever adapted Southern Victory, this needs to happen.Irving Morrel: 1941-1944
This is a good point! Can't think of Morrel without thinking of Rommel. While I agree that it would be more than acceptable to picture him as one of the actors that played Rommel, I also think a few actors that never played Rommel can still fit the bill as a description for Irving Morrel.
When reading the Settling Accounts series, I always imagined Morrel to look something like Ed Harris. He never played Rommel, but I've seen comparisons of him looking like Rommel.

^^^ --- Irving Morrel (Ed Harris)
Oh! You really think its a good match up then! Well if they ever do they better do it quick because Ed Harris isn't getting any younger. Again, its just what I imagine Morrel to look like, others have their own take on what he may look like. If we're really just trying to picture an "American Rommel" though, Harris is what I picture Morrel would look like.Oh my god, if they ever adapted Southern Victory, this needs to happen.
Hey, who is the actor's name for your Jake Featherston? I've seen him before? Also, what are your thoughts on Ricky Schroder as a young Clarence Potter during the Great War? (this actor played Major Charles Whittlesey in "The Lost Battalion" movie)Just my opinions. Some are close enough to how I viewed them:

ok....who is that actress?
Flora Blackford (nee Hamburger)
Chris Christie as Ferdinand Koenig and Phillip Seymour Hoffman as Saul Goldman sound very good to me!A lot of people usually go for James Gandolfini for Koening.
Oddly enough Chris Christie could work as well...\
Phillip Seymour Hoffman maybe...
Mary Elizabeth Winsteadok....who is that actress?
Not bad for this version of Pinkard. I like it! Although, I did imagine him having longer, black-colored hair. My first choice for Pinkard was initially a fat version of Joseph Goebbles and then to Amon Goeth or someone similar in appearance, like Ralph Fiennes. I do concur with your assessment that Fiennes would be too "classical" or "Master Villain", as you say.I have to say that Mr Schroeder certainly LOOKS perfect for Clarence Potter - though one also likes the idea of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman in the role - and I have to say that very nearly all of your casting choices are extremely on-point Allochronian (my only serious quibble is with Mr Ralph Fiennes as Jefferson Davis Pinkard; he looks a bit too much of a Master Villain, where Pinkard is very definitely the sort of fellow who gets whistled up for fist-fights with Indiana Jones, rather than the one doing the whistling).
^^ In fact Mr Pat Roach, whom you might not know by name but who has an extremely distinguished record of service as a Heavy in various adventure films from the 1970s to the 1990s; he would appear to fit Jeff Pinkard's description as a meaty, red-haired bruiser quite exactly AND, as an extra bonus, was actually born in Birmingham (albeit the one in Old England, rather than Alabama). ^^
I've tried to imagine what Featherston's voice would be like. Contrary to popular perception, there are several different types of "Southern accent".Jake Featherston's Voice:
So, this isn't really a physical description, but ever since reading the books, I have always imagined Jake Featherston's voice to sound like this, in the video below. A little more raspy, a little more southern, and a little more cynical, angry, and venomous in tone, but otherwise that is the voice that I always hear him having for some reason.
^^^ --- This is from the hit Halo show "Red Vs. Blue". Yes, I know it might not be the right voice. Everyone has a preference.
Hah, I like these! This gives a good range on the differences even in southern accents.I've tried to imagine what Featherston's voice would be like. Contrary to popular perception, there are several different types of "Southern accent".
Even though I'm still undecided of what his voice would sound like to me, I did find some examples that could plausibly be used as the "Voice of Featherston"
