Another General ID

Post by Mark V. » 21 Jul 2005 11:32

Another General looking for his name. Captioned as artillery officer he was apparently with LI.AK during the invasion of Yugoslavia in 1941.

Thanks in advance
Marko

Hi Marko!

If the caption is correct, then it could be the Artillery officer of the LI. Armeekorps. It was Artilleriekommandeur (Arko) 106, from it´s creation on (01.10.1939) led by Obst. and Gen. Maj. (from 01.10.1940 on) Gerhard Steinbauer, a Bavarian Artillery Reichsheer pro.

He earned the EK1 in WWI, as well as a wound badge (1914).

Regards!

Wow. Thanks for the swift answer, Jürgen :) !

Must be Steinbauer then (the source of the picture is 1941 LI.AK propaganda booklet). Very interesting general!

Thanks again
Marko

From the same book ( Vorstoss nach Bosnien, published by LI.AK, May 1941):

The Kdr. of the left division (183.Inf.Div.?). Dippold?

Hi Mark!

It certainly looks like Dippold.

Did Steinbauer die as a PoW, as it is sometimes indicated? 1946 would fit, but I would have expected camps like Garmisch-Partenkirchen instead of München as place of death.

Also, I would be grateful for infos on his later career after LI. AK.
