Hi,

Nice job - you've identified a number of generals that I had missed, thank you.

I would tentatively like to add Char. General der Infanterie Anton von Thiesenhausen. I don't have a promotion date for him, but as far as I have been able to establish, he commanded the 94. Infanterie-Division as a Generalleutnant from Dec 1917 - Jan 1919, which would mean his promotion was post January 1919.

Very best regards,

VJK

There is a publication entitled 'Between Kaiser and Führer' by Andris J. Kursietis that lists about 750 generals for the period 1919-1933. They are listed alphabetically and mention positions held from 1919-1933, and retirement dates. If you can find a copy, I think it would assist your list.
The publication is copyrighted by Kursietis, and was published by ARK Publications Co. Inc.
5727 W. Wright Street, Milwaukee Wisconsin 53210 USA. e-mail is akrk@execpc.com
Give ebay or www.bookfinder.com or www.abebooks.com a look and perhaps they have a copy for sale.

Can anyone please give me the dates and places of birth and death of Viktor Dallmer (1852 - 1936), as well as his promotion dates and commands. Considering he was a holder of the Eichenlaub to the Pour le Mérite, there is almost no info about him out there. This is the little I have on him:

Sekondeleutnant:
Premierleutnant:
Hauptmann:
Major:
Oberstleutnant:
Oberst:
Generalmajor:
Generalleutnant:
Char. General der Infanterie: 26 Jan 1920

1914 - 1916: Kommandeur, 27. Landwehr-Brigade

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Very best regards,

Aisin and VJK,
Dallmer's home after retiring was Baudach/Mark, not Baudack. It is now Budachów, Poland.
