I do not remember if the generals that are on this picture posted sometime ago on this sticky have been fully identified.
I well remember though that there was quite a controversy at the time the picture was posted
In case they were not identified, here we go:
From left to right:
GL Albin NAKE (264 ID),G.d.I. Ernst von LEYSER (XV Geb.K) and G.d.G.T. Karl EGLSEER (114 ID).
Cheers.

Excellent correction. There weren't many Kübler pics then, let alone Nake.

Cheers

Hello,

Page 284 - I think man between v. Briesen and v. Leeb it's GL Ernst Seifert commander of the newly formed 110.I.D.

Best wishes
Ruslan

Going back to the "chubby" general in Croatia, I am attaching three pictures from e-bay that show more clearly his features to help to Identify him.
Cheers.

Yes, indeed, Alif.

All the best.
Thank you, Graveland... :)

Hi Miocid, is it possible that general with Order of the Iron Trefoil (middle picture, far left) is Generalleutnant Arthur Schwarznecker, Befehlshaber Syrmien? I'm looking through all IT recipients, and he's the most possible candidate, at least in my opinion...

Dear All,

First let's say thanks for all your ideas. :D

Attach the same pic where I try to summarise all identified person.

The pic is from a convolut of pics of Inf. Reg 2, Allenstein. Possible that the guy who had made the pics was at that time on a training at Inf Schule Döberitz, WK III.

Thanks for your support

BR, Gerhard

Ref - Hube etc. was looking it again, and I think the General is Ernst Groschupf, he has ears that stuck out. He would be
Cmdr Wehrbezirkskommando Potsdam 1

The attached picture has been scanned (excuse the bad quality) from the book "Rückmarsch Then and know".
Caption says WRONGLY that it is general NEULING being captured by the americans in Southern France. HE IS NOT. They could have saved the explanation about the Knigth Cross hidden or robbed.
He might be Gen.Lt. Hans SCHÄFER that was captured as well in Southern France but I can not confirm it. The only pictures of this general I´ve got are of poor quality. Besides, I don´t see any pip on his shoulders.
I would appreciate your help to identify him.
Cheers.

Reviewing old files I came accros this picture from the "Generals" thread of the Wehrmacht Awards Forum.
The general was identified by Elwyn as "Siegfried RASP commander of the 3 Geb.Div.".
Let me make some comments about it.
1.-First of all, the face doesn´t look very much like RASP´s.
2.-RASP was "Führ. 3.Geb.D." while being an Oberst. The General on the picture is a Gen.Lt.
3.-The picture is not clear enough to me to ID the officer on the left. Could he be RASP when he was Chef.Gen.St.XXIII AK ?. If that is the case, the general might be HILPERT even though the resemblance to the good pictures available from him is not that great.

Your comments will be much appreciated.
