dawnm -- Here are some other Wehrmacht and SS figures in WWII Danish history, but most of them are fairly obvious (more information if you want it, of course).

Best, Dr. jur. Karl Rudolf Werner (1903-1989) [SS-Obergruppenführer]
Bovensiepen, Otto (c. 1905-?) [SS-Obersturmbannführer]
von Collani, Ingo (1900-1969) [Generalmajor]
von Falkenhorst, Nikolaus von Jastrzembski gennant (1885-1968) [Generaloberst]
von Hanneken, Hermann (1890-1981) [General der Infanterie]
Kaupisch, Leonhard (1878-1945) [General der Artillerie/General der Flieger]
Lindemann, Georg (1884-1963) [Generaloberst]
Luedke, Erich (1882-1946) [General der Infanterie]
Pancke, Guenther (1889-1973) [SS-Obergruppenfuehrer und General der Polizei]

On the others -- have you checked forum co-host Michael Miller's bios on the Axis Biographical Research site? I noticed Gen. Roettig's bio just got updated, and there may be more.

Yes, they are fairly obvious. I have checked Michael Millers web-site, but maybe I should check again.

Thanks anyway
