List of German generals in World War I

Postby mjölnir on 08 Jul 2008 07:27

I search a complete list of all German generals during World War I. I found only lists for the Generalfeldmarschälle and Generaloberst, but no one for Generals of Infantry, artillery, etc. or of Generalleutnant or Generalmajor.
Who can help me?

I don't know how extensive this is (and in French but easy to read) but could be a start:

http://web.genealogie.free.fr/Les_milit ... /Terre.htm


Corps and Divisional commanders can be checked off to here as well.From Jon's website:

http://home.comcast.net/~jcviser/index.htm/page_9.htm


This covers ALL Imperial Prussian Generals up to 1920 as well

http://www.lexikon-deutschegenerale.de/welcome.htm


Those who were further promoted( to char General der Infanterie etc),the "Tannenberg Generals" of 1939, are also listed here by Glenn:

That should keep you busy for a few weeks if you want to compile it all together. :D

Gentlemen and Ladies, we have a problem. The 3 links posted are inactive. I had 3 other sites with the desired WW 1 listings, and they also are gone with the wind. Sorry to bring the bad news. Perhaps there is another site we are not aware of. I have the names on my other computer, but it is an Apple and I cannot transmit the information to a windows system. I've been thinking of transferring all the names to another computer, but I have over 70,000 names and data, so it will be a lenghty project. Harry

I have compiled a list on excel, but it starts in 1870 and ends in 1918. I can send it to anyone who wants it, just send me your e-mail address

Hi gents,

The site http://web.genealogie.free.fr/Les_milit ... /Terre.htm unfortunately is down. However, these are the revised links to the other 2 sites mentioned by Peter:

http://home.comcast.net/~jcviser/index.htm

http://www.lexikon-deutschegenerale.de/biographien.html

Best regards,

That's quite impressive. Are you considering extending the list to include earlier than 1870?

Also if you haven't had a chance to read it, I think you'll find Daniel J. Hughes' The King's Finest interesting.

I was just basing it on Rangliste I have, and 1870 seemed to be a good starting point. It would be futile to go further back when I can't figure out the World War 1 list!

Hello Mjolnir, go and search for "LEXICON DER DEUTSCHE GENERALE" and you will find the Prussian generals of WW1. The list includes active and retired generals, with dates of birth and death, and nothing else, besidestheir rank. Best regards, Harry

Hello, I am very embarrassed right now, seeing as Steen a while back provided the same site information I did yesterday. However, if you go into the Forum section of that site, about 8 or 9 entries down, you will find a listing of the Tannenberg generals and Admirals. The names even indicate if the officer is Austrian. Best regards, Harry
