Generalmajor Arthur Matthes

Post by Minotauros » 15 Nov 2021 08:42

Good morning,



I'm looking for a biography of Generalmajor Arthur MATTHES.

He was the Ia of 2.Armee in 1914 (as an Oberstleutnant i.G.).

After that he led the 33.Reserve-Infanterie-Brigade (to 27.9.1918) and then the 8.Infanterie-Brigade (the latter from 13.10.1918 to 7.1.1919).

Best regards,
