Erich Ludendorff

Post by AJK » 04 Jul 2020 19:01

Despite the very high historical profile of Erich Ludendorff, I have been unable to determine the exact date of his promotion to Hauptmann (all I have found is March 1895). Could someone please provide the exact date?

Thank you,

AJK

Hi AJK,

I have 22 March 1895 from the Vollständige Dienstaltersliste (Anciennetätsliste) der Offiziere der königlich preussischen Armee, des XIII. (königl. Württemb.) Armeekorps und der kaiserlichen schutztruppen 1914.

Edit Confirmed by MWB, 1895, Nr. 26 column 664.
Kind Regards
