Otto von Ledebur

Post by Myrkozg » 24 Jun 2015 16:56

I am looking for the informations about oberst Otto von Ledebur.

I know that during WW1 he was chief of staff of 5th Army and Army detachment C, but i don't have any other information about him (date of birth, death, ranks, other units in which he served or comanded exc.).

Also, does anyone have a picture of him ?

Thanks in advance.
