Sedan General Staff Courses

Post by Stauffenberg II » 12 Jun 2019 09:12

Dear all,

I would like to know the participants of the General Staff Courses in Sedan. These were held to replace the Kriegsakademie education in war-time, but I have never seen participant lists.

As far as I know Erwin von Witzleben was one of the participants, also Guderian, Schmidt and Reinhardt .. but I would like to get sure.

I would like to know others. As far as I know Schobert (Gen. Oberst), Busch (Gen. Felmd.) never took part in such sources. What about Werner Kienitz (Gen. d. Inf.)?

Thanks in advance
