Hi nguyenx!

Attached is a pic of Ludwiger. I have yet to see a pic of him in General's uniform. Apparently he was promoted General der Infanterie in 1945, but again information is scarce on the subject.

Regards,

VJK

As treat of the day: Von Ludwiger in general's uniform.

A promotion to General der Infanterie has apparently not been officially approved. Highest rank: Generalleutnant.

Regards.

Hans

Paal Waland has a colour pic of him posted on his fantastic website, albeit in the uniform of a colonel.

Thank VJK Houtemann Freiherr
I think that Ludwiger was promoted General d. Inf in April, 1945, but the date did not know. Who know correctly about his bio?

Hi!

I suspect that Ludwiger is amongst the handful of General rank officers who may (or may not) have received promotions on April 20th, 1945 (e.g. Karl Wolff, Hans Pruetzmann) but for whom there is a lack of written confirmation.

Thanks very much Hans for that photo of Ludwiger in General's uniform - I was hoping that my comment might elicit such a pic!
Regards,

VJK
