Generaloberst Hans-Valentin Hube (1890-1944)

Hube joined the German Army on 27 February 1909, and after officer training, was assigned as a Fahnenjunker to Infantry Regiment Nr. 26 Fürst Leopold von Anhalt-Dessau, based at Magdeburg. With the outbreak of war in August 1914, Hube, now a platoon leader in the 26th, was sent to the front. He saw action during the early period of the war, being promoted to adjutant of the 26th's second battalion. On 20 September 1914, he was severely wounded at Fontenoy, Aisne, and as a result had his left arm amputated...

After a year convalescing, Hube once again returned to the front, this time as the 26th's 7.Company commander. By early 1918, he was acting as a standing General Staff officer with the 7th Infantry Division. On 10 April 1918, while commanding the defence against an English tank attack, Hube received severe gas poisoning. He spent the next year convalescing in hospital, seeing the end of the war from his hospital bed...

Athens - Berlin .... in a few hours!

The German Army Medical Service as regards the validity of its model facilities and above all the measures for the repatriation of wounded fastest unique in the world. When done anything feasible, to transport the wounded and sick by means of rapid and large aircraft...

Even the wounded Ritterkreuzträger Major Walter Koch, the conquerors of Eben Emael, returns in this way into the home...

Oberleutnant Werner Karl von Haeften (9 October 1908 - 21 July 1944)

With the start of World War II, served on the Eastern Front...

Returned to Berlin after being severely wounded on Eastern Front. Treated by surgeon Ferdinand Sauerbruch (same physician that treated von Stauffenberg?). His wounds (to the back/hip, cause from gunshot) rendered him unfit for further duty at the front. After recovery, served as Adjutant to Stauffenberg in the Supreme Command of the Wehrmacht (OKW)...

SS-Standartenführer und Oberst der Polizei Rudolf Pannier (10 July 1897-19 August 1978)

He was promoted to the rank of SS-Standartenführer and while recuperating from his many wounds, received the German Cross in Gold. He commanded an anti-partisan unit in Russia. In September 1944 he was transferred to the 14 Galician Division as regimental commander with WGR 31 at Neuhammer. A former Ukrainian officer who served as a staff officer with WGR 31 suggests that because of his wounds which had left him with a permanent limp, Pannier often took morphine injections to which he later became addicted. As a result "he often gave foolish and unreasonable orders". On 9th April 1945 he was wounded again at the front. Two separate accounts by witnesses of how Pannier received his wound concur that it was due to his arrogance and failing to conduct himself properly when in an exposed position...
