I am looking for the informations about general Leo Sontag.

I know that during WW1 he comanded 41 and 56. infantry division and Alpenkorps, but i don't have any other informations about this general (date of birth, death, ranks, other units that he comanded exc.).

Does anyone have a picture of this general ?

Thanks in advance.
