Generalleutnant Woldemar Freiherr von Grote?
Who knows. Unfortunately there is nothing to compare it to.
Thank you.
Whoever that is, the photo is obviously a fake (see here).
This is the guy pictured as Grote in Bradley's book. The same person?

It may well be it is not Grote, but is this the same person on both photos? I'm rather bad at identifying faces.

A further portrait of Freiherr Grote. In my opinion, the same man as in the picture in Bradley but clearly not the "doctored" Generalleutnant.

I think this is the REAL Gen.Lt. Woldemar GROTE. Hard to say if he´s the samer as in Bradley´s book.
Cheers.

Well, I think you are quite right, miocid. The physical resemblance is amazing.
