SS-Oberführer Kurt Benson

Postby thomas » 14 Dec 2004 08:35

Dear all

I have three question to this man:

1. Was he ever promoted to SS-Brigadeführer or was he "only" SS-Oberführer"?

2. Why he left the SS and went to the Wehrmacht as Oberleutnant?

3. In which unit fought he in the Wehrmacht?

Any information would be highly appreciated.

Greetings

thomas

Hi Thomas,

1. Benson was "only" SS-Oberführer (20.06.1935).
2. He not left the SS.
3. 1939 zum Kriegsdienst beim Infanterie-Regiment 46 einberufen (Westfront, UdSSR), 01.04.1942 Oberleutnant d. R.
