Andy,

You can of cause compile list from my site, but it will take some time, so it would be easier to check this earlier tread. Although I don’t mind if you visit my site :wink:

Marcus,

Sadly it’s out of print. It’s a book back from 1992. However you should be able to track down a secondhand copy through bookfinder.com

That's a very interesting site, Steen Ammentorp. :D Well, atleast that settles that no German Generals are still alive. :(

Try telling that to Dietrich Beelitz, Peter von der Groeben or Hans-Joachim Kahler, they'll be upset at the news that they have passed away ;)
Not all are gone yet my friend.

Gareth may very well be right since my site doesn’t list every German general yet, far from it to say the least. But sure those listed are death :)

A.) I was only going on the list as i don't know of every single General.
B.) I've never heard of any of these Generals. Are you sure they were Generals and not say, Colonel-Generals, Lieutenant-Generals, etc?
C.) They must be fairly old then if still alive.

Do you know any more about them Gareth? Thanks. :D Cheers. :D

I was going on the estimation that by generals you meant generals across the board, not the two diamond kind. My apologies. Here is info on them anyway.
