Squad Leaders of Assault Group "Granite"

Post by Hoplophile » 14 Jan 2020 14:03

Hello, Biographers!

I am hoping that you might be able to help me discover some details about the background of the men who led the component squads of Assault Force "Granite," the unit that landed atop Fort Eben-Emael on 10 May 1940. I am particular interested in their military service prior to the operation, their civilian professions, their civilian schooling, and the places where they grew up.

Feldwebel Hans Niedermeier


Oberjäger Max Maier 

Oberjäger Peter Nikolaus Arent
 
Oberfeldwebel Helmut Wenzel

Feldwebel Erwin Haug

Oberjäger Siegfried Harlos
 
Oberjäger Fritz Heinemann


Oberjäger Karl Unger


Oberjäger Ewald Neuhaus

Oberjäger Willie Hübel

Oberjäger Fritz Schwarz

With many thanks!
