Hello Søren,

Another Dane interested in generals! :lol: You are quite right - it’s difficult to find information on the generals of Germany’s minor allies. However I might be able to fill some of your gaps in regard to Romanian and Hungarian generals, so please contact me by e-mail.

Kind Regards

Glaise

Post by Glenn2438 » 06 May 2003 17:04

Søren,

Glaise-Horstenau is a very interesting character and amongst his greatest achievements was his overseeing of the multi-volume Austrian official history of the First World War "Österreich-Ungarns letzter Krieg" while he was active at the Viennese War Archives. His was an honorary doctorate awarded by the University of Munich for his numerous writings in 1932. Gareth will I hope, forgive me for providing a better quality image of the General's portrait. Additionally there is a very nice photograph of Glaise-Horstenau at the aeiou site showing him as an SA-Brigadeführer:

According to Keilig GenLt A. Müller became a Soviet POW and wasn’t released until 6th Oct. 1955. He died 3 years later in Munich.

Hello,

Here is an image of Materna that I found and a document that he signed.

Materna Friedrich, Gen. Maj./Gen. d. Inf., DKG (15.12.1942), RK (05.08.1940)

Hope this helps.

Glenn you seem to be the king of hard-to-get photos, could i borrow your attention to see if you can find a pic of GenKav Theodor Brantner?
Thanks in Advance

Hi Gareth!

Long time no hear. Fortunately the Austrian National Library (Bildarchiv Austria) has started bringing its pics digitally online, please see the following link to search:

http://www.bildarchivaustria.at/default.aspx

So they can finally present Gen. d. Kav. Theodor Brantner. Download: EUR 4,55
