    COLOR POSTCARD: GENERALFELDMARSCHALL PAUL von HINDENBURG

    SKU: 43-363

    $15.00

    This is an excellent color postcard of Generalfeldmarschall Paul von Hindenburg (1847-1934). Hindenburg had a long and distinguished military career. He served in both the 1866 Austro-Prussian War and the 1870-1871Franco-Prussian War. In 1911, he retired while serving as a General der Infanterie in command of the 4. Armeekorps. As was the tradition upon retirement, he was promoted to generaloberst. With WW I’s outbreak, he was called back to service and appointed the 8. Armee’s commander. Under his leadership on the Eastern Front, the Germans dealt the Russians a major defeat at the Battle of Tannenberg. His continued success on the Eastern Front led to his promotion to Generalfeldmarschall in November 1914. In 1916, von Hindenburg left his post in the East and assumed the German Army’s overall control as Chief of the General Staff. He was supported by his deputy, Eric Ludendorff, throughout this time period. After WW I ended, he retired for the second time in 1919. From 1925 into 1934, he served as the Weimar Republic’s President. A total of seven men served him as Chancellor during the period, with Adolf Hitler as the seventh, and most-notorious. [Upon von Hindenburg’s death, Hitler assumed overall control of Germany, not as President, but as Chancellor and Führer]. This color postcard is based on a painting of von Hindenburg. He appears in a feldgrau tunic, complete with the 1914 Iron Cross 1st Class on his left breast and the Orden Pour le Mérite at his neck. On the postcard’s reverse…

    POSTCARD – BAVARIAN GENERALFELDMARSCHALL PRINZ LEOPOLD

    SKU: 43-358

    $15.00

    During WW I, three German royals were truly able commanders. They worked their way to their positions not so much by their royal births, but by their performances. Those three men were Kronprinz Rupprecht of Bavaria, Herzog Albrecht of Württemberg, and Prinz Leopold of Bavaria. These men achieved the rank of generalfeldmarschall and commanded vast troop numbers in Armeegruppen or Herresgruppen. (Army Groups were assemblages of multiple armies (generally three or more) that reported to these men. They were a huge responsibility. [Remember, Kronprinz Wilhelm was only given command of ONE army during the war(!)]. These three men were excellent commanders. Along with von Mackensen and von Hindenburg, they were among WW I Germany’s best. The postcard we are offering today is of Generalfeldmarschall Prinz Leopold (1846-1930). We do not hear a great deal about him as he spent the war’s bulk fighting on the Eastern Front. It is interesting to note that during the 1870/71 Franco-Prussian War Leopold was awarded the 1870 Iron Crosses 1st and 2nd Class (first as a young hauptmann, then a major). He progressed through the Bavarian Army and was promoted to generalfeldmarschall in 1905. He retired in 1913, but was brought back to active service at the age of sixty-eight with WW I’s onset. This made him one of the German Army’s older senior commanders. In 1915 he was given command of the IX. Armee, replacing von Mackensen. Next, he was promoted to lead Herresgruppe Prinz Leopold, which consisted of German and Austrian troops…
