Hi,
@35 General der Pioniere Alfred Jacob (RK KVK), General der Artillerie Heinrich Meyer-Buerdorf (left) and Generaloberst Hans von Salmuth (right).
Andrey.
Behind Rommel is Generalleutnant Friedrich DIHM, but do you know who is the General at the back behind Jacob?

I want to come once back on an old one here.
The pic. on the next pages:
- Page 15, post 225, pic.36.jpg and
- Page 897, post 13445, pic.@43,
cannot be Hans Luthardt to my opinion. I would rather say Otto-Ernst Remer.
Luthardt's nose is clearly not straight, while this man's is.
Confirmation welcome.
Thanks and kind regards,
Hugo.

Hi Hugo,

This is an interesting subjective observation, but it is an objective fact: on the picture we see an Oberleutnant and not a Major. That decided the question!

It is NOT Gerke, Bern.

Dammit, I know who this general is, but right now I don't remember his name, Lado.
