House Of Hohenzollern Recipients From Wehrmacht And Nazis

Post by AlifRafikKhan » 21 Jul 2009 14:03

The House Order of Hohenzollern (Hausorden von Hohenzollern or Hohenzollernscher Hausorden) was an order of chivalry of the House of Hohenzollern. It was both a military and a civil award. The order itself could only be awarded to commissioned officers (or civilians of approximately equivalent status), but associated with the various versions of the order were crosses and/or medals which could be awarded to non-commissioned officers and soldiers or civilians of approximately equivalent status...

The following list is only a sample of some of the more prominent recipients' names. As noted above, the Knight's Cross with Swords of the Royal House Order was the intermediate decoration between the Iron Cross 1st Class and the Pour le Mérite for Prussian junior officers. There were over 8,000 awards during World War I of this class (there were far fewer awards of the other classes, or of any class before the war). Thus, among the ranks of Imperial German Army junior officers who earned the Royal House Order as lieutenants, captains or majors in World War I are several hundred who reached the rank of general the Wehrmacht in World War II...
