Hello to all :D; a little about this.......................................

Leaders of the Luftwaffe in WWI.

Bruno Lörzer ended the war with 44 victories, exactly double that of his friend Hermann Göring, remaining in seventh place among the German aces.

Hello to all :D; a little more.......................................

Erwin Jollasse.

Erwin Jollasse, was born in 1892 in far-off Germany. In 1911 when he was 19, the young Jollasse entered the German Army as a Fahnenjunker (Officer Cadet). He intended to make the army his career. Over the next few years he learned his trade and in 1914 he was Section Commander of the 11th Company Reserve Infantry Regiment No 26.

When the Germans invaded France and Belgium in August of that year, the young Leutnant Erwin Jollasse marched with them. He fought at Noyers and Sedan, and as a Company Commander was wounded during the Battle of the Marne. A succession of promotions in the battalion followed, and in 1915 he was the Gas Defence Officer on the staff of 15th Reserve Infantry Division. In April 1916 he transferred to the Fliegertruppe to begin training as an aerial observer.

On 2nd April 1917, Wendroth and Jollasse crashed while taking off in a Rumpler C IV. Jollasse was injured with groin and lung contusions, and a compound strain to his right wrist. He was evacuated to hospital in Germany. Erwin Jollasse recovered from his injuries, and was posted to a Flying School as an instructor. As his injuries affected his flying duties, he returned to the infantry in 1918. In World War II he commanded 9th Panzer Division in Russia and in France.

That is a more interesting post.

Of course all the senior generals served in WW1 They were mostly middle aged men who would have been hyoung men in WW1.

It is much rarer to find someone who had served at a high level in WW1.

Freyberg was promoted Brigadier General aged 28 in 1917 having joined the navy three years earlier. He ended the war as a VC DSO and two bars, six mentions in dispatches. There is a lot more to his story than the m,an who was in command when Crete fell.

Macarthur was nine years older and fourteen years into a military career in 1917.

My American example to compare with Freyberg is Clarence R Huebner who commanded a company, battalion and then a regiment in the 1st US Division, which he would command in WW2 from 1943. Unique to command in the same formation in both world wars.

As you stated, but is easier, just to said, to find a picture or history about a Brigadier, Colonel or higher in WWI but more difficult to find a picture of a simple junior officer.................so trying to put here some pictures of those "dark" young boys in WWI but later well known in WWII.
