There were two GenMj Otto Schulz 1862 - 1937! 8-)

1. Prussian GenMj 00.00.1862 - 00.00.1937

Mj 27.01.07 F
ObstLt 18.04.13 F

I/Lothringisches IR Nr 136
2 Stabs Offz Ldw Bezirk Kmdo II Berlin 00.00.14
IR 376 im Kriege
He was quite identifiable because he had a WK3a from his service with IR 136 in Straßburg i.E.

2. Bavarian GenMj 07.02.1862 - 00.00.1937

Mj 08.03.07
ObstLt 23.03.10
Obst 27.03.13

Elwyn,

It's always tricky with names like Schulz. Otto was an Oberstlt. in FAR 16 in 1914. Richard Schulz was the Oberstlt. z.D. in Landw. Bez. II Berlin. Both were later char. Gen.Maj. and both were born in 1862.

Hi Andy,

Tricky indeed. Richard was 00.00.1862 - 00.00.1933.

If Richard was the infanterie offz and StabOffz Ldw Bezirk Kmdo,
then the laufbahn of Otto would be that of the artillerie offz :

Mj 15.06.07 Ff
ObstLt 01.10.13 X3x

II/FAR 71 Groß Komtur
Stab 1 Ostpreuß FAR 16
Kmdr Munition Kolonne u Trains 8

I now have the new Zweng extension work of the Priessdorff nachlaß but either the latter did not get round to these two or their record were destroyed in those infamous bombing raids of Berlin.

Cheers
Elwyn

P.S. Also I meant WF3a, not WK3a

Correct. Also Richard spent a few months as the staff Oberstlt. in IR 60 between IR 136 and Landw. Bez. II Berlin.

So, what do you think of Zweng's biographies- worth the money??

Less for you than it is for me!! :D Since you have your super-duper data base.

For me it is convenience and those little gaps that are hard to come by. Definitely "verbatim" Priessdorff. Only Priessdorff would have an entry for mdFb and one for the full commissioning of the post. As I said, the entries begin to drop very quickly as you go pass Q or R - e.g. neither Schulz was in it. No portraits. A mistake here and there.

Elwyn,

Thanks for your comments. I think Zweng did very little additional research and "only" used Priesdorf's notes. Still, it's nice to have additional information out there.

Thanks for all the input. I am contemplating purchasing the set, but was wondering exactly what information is contained on the pages.
Any info or page description would be helpful.
Regards, Robert Brockmeier

Thanks for the quick reply! Good info. I did notice he does not add the letter after the promotion date
but the Rangliste has most all of them.
Again thanks. Now to get the money collected!!!

I got them from Helmut Weitz. They are 100 times better than surly Biblio verlag. And Mr Weitz threw in postage for free.
