Hi all of you,

according to my information Otto Gieseke was BdO Ostland. When was he appointed?

Otto Gieseke

Post by Pena V » 07 Aug 2009 22:45

I hijacked this old thread because I was looking for info about Bf Otto Gieseke. He was appointed BdO Ostland in March 1944. Before that he was the CO of Polizei-Schützen-Regiment 1 from at least September 1942 (probably much earlier) until April 1943. He was promoted to Brigadeführer 10 June 1944 but what about his other assingments and promotions?

Regards,

Pena V

He also may have been the one running KG Giesecke outside of Riga in 1944. Probably September
