Can anyone tell me if the rank Reichsgeneralfeldmarschall was the same as that of Generalfeldmsrschall or is there a difference? Appreciate it.

It is my understanding that the only man to have been Riechfieldmarshall was Hermann Goering. Making him the highest ranking military man in German History. He even had a special baton made, so that it was deferent from a Field Marshall. I belive that baton is in the West Point Museum.

The real grade of Hermann Göring was Reichsmarschall (19.07.1940)
General der Flieger------>01.03.1935
19.07.1940 many generals were made Generalfeldmarschall or Grossadmiral.
