Never heard, but you may be right (your source ?).

My candidate was - to be sure - Generalmajor z.V. Dr. phil. h.c. Otto William Heinrich Wagener
(SA-Gruppenführer)
at Rhodos.

He was Kommandant Ost-Ägäis and Militärgouverneur der italienischen Inseln des Dodekanes (Rhodos, Kos and Leros)
20.04.1945 Parade zum Führergeburtstag, zusätzliche Brotzuteilung für Teilnehmer. Für die Ergreifung von Fahnenflüchtigen werden 3 Brote und 2 Büchsen Fleischkonserven ausgelobt

Ansprache Wageners: “Ein Volk ist noch nicht geschlagen, wenn seine Armeen geschlagen sind. Ein Volk ist noch nicht verloren, wenn es eine Schlacht verloren hat. Einen Krieg verliert nur der, der ihn aufgibt. Es wird ein Wunder geschehen. Unsere Insel Rhodos kommt mir dabei vor wie die Insel der Seeligen. Wir aber werden den Augenblick erleben, wenn die Rache Gottes über unsere Feinde kommt. Das Schwert Gottes ist es, das wir führen.“ (zit. bei Wolfgang Paul: “Der Endkampf um Deutschland“, Wilhelm Heyne Verlag München, 1978)

21.04.1945 Tagesbefehl: “Je schlechter es noch wird, desto besser wird es nachher. Alfred Krupp.“

C’ est à vous, Jean !

Bonsoir Dieter.
My source is "Die Deutsche Feldpost in Griechenland im II. Weltkrieg 1941-1945 " written by Byron a member of our forum.

I find the information in Band2, page 637- with 10 pictures of this "Parade am 20.4.1945" Panzer (Hptm.Schober), Marine, Luftwafe, Gren.Rgt Kreta, Kptltn.Strössinger Kommandeur Martine-Btl Kreta, etc....

I hope Byron could tell us his sources about this parade on 20.4.1945.

The new and easy question is:
He was the only one Generaloberstabsrichter .

Good morning!

My turn?

We are looking for a Wehrmacht-General who was born in South Tyrol, Austrian officer in WW1, member of the Villa-Giusti-Team in November 1918, than officer in the Austrian Bundesheer and late general in 1940, died in Germany soon after WW2.

Have fun...

Christian

Who was the General who said to Hitler:
"Mein Führer, Ihre Erfahrung im Weltkrieg kann doch ein Spatz auf seinem Schwanz davon tragen !!"
(My Führer, really a sparrow is able to carry away on his tail your experience in the Great War !!).
Where and when ?

Merry Xmas to all! my friends!

No, it was not "Lakeitel", who was an ingratiating bootlicker. I' m searching for a critically scrutinizing general !
As a little help :idea: :wink: :
It was on 13.03.1943 in the HQu of Heresgruppe Mitte in Krassny-Bor near Smolensk.

Merry Christmas

My guess is also Walter, despite I didn't hear this quote before.
