Rittmeister (Captain) Mühlmann was the MA of Marshall Liman von Sanders at the beginning of the Gallipoli campaign. Later he successfully tried to get rid of this difficult task...(he wrote to his parents:"Dear father and mother. You cannot imagine how difficult those 1 1/2 years with L. (Liman) were. If I would had such a calm tempered character, I couldn't stand it..."). He changed to the Südgruppe (Krithia-Front) in the HQ of Col Sodenstern and later General Weber, who both commandet the Turkish troops during the three battles of Krithia in the south. His letters to his parents are unique testemonies of the battles, in which he sometimes personally were engaged. After the war he wrote several books about the campaign and the Turkish-German realtionship.


Has anyone any further details on him?

Peter.

Major Dr.Carl Mühlmann:

Carl Mühlmann was commissioned into Kürassier-Regiment Graf Geßler (Rheinisches) Nr. 8 on the 18th of January 1901 and in which he spent his entire pre-war service with the exception of the three year course at the War Academy in Berlin from 1 October 1908 to 21 July 1911. He attended a course of instruction at the Infantry School of Gunnery from 31 May to 20 June 1913 and then like the rest of the Liman Mission he officially "retired" from active service on deploying to Turkey. In both Liman's and Mühlmann's case this was the 8th of December 1913. The now Oberleutnant z.D. Mühlmann was promoted to the brevet (charakterisierter) Rank of Rittmeister z.D. on 27 January 1914. His entry in the Ehrenrangliste shows him as a General Staff officer late in the war on the staff of Generalkommando 54.

Leutnant: 18.1.01 K4k
Oberleutnant: 22.3.10 S9s
char. Rittmeister z.D.: 27.1.14
Rittmeister: 27.1.14 Q4q1

From "Hans Guhr, Maj. Gen. (R)"Als Turkischer Divizionskommandeur in Klein Asien and Palaestina) translated into Turkish with the tittle: Anadoludan Filistine Turklerle Omuz Omuza, p.229
"I met Ritmeister Mühlmann from the Yildirim Army Group at the railway station of Pozanti where we spent 18 hours delay for the next train. He told me about dishonourable conditions of armistrace signed between our enemies and Turks. He also told me the sayings about the resignation of German Emperor from his trown. I didnt want to believe these sayings but they had a deep negative impress on me. We continued our voyage under such impressions."

Tank Staff Col. (R) Asst. Prof. Dr. Ismet Gorgulu says in his book " On Yillik Harbin Kadrosu (Personel of Ten Years Long War) p. 67 that Maj. Mühlmann was COS of South Region Command during the unsuccesfull night assaults of May 1/2-3/4 1915. His commander was Col.Zodenstern. Zodenstern and Mühlmann were replaced by Weber Pasha and Lt. Col.Thauvenay.

At p.142 we have a Maj. Mühlmann commander of Akinci (Raider) Regiment at the 2nd Canal Expedition.

At p.143 we have a Maj. Mühlmann COS of 1st Expeditionary Forces under command of Col. von Kress.

Is he another person ?
