The Battle of Tannenberg was one of Germany’s most important WW I victories. German forces on the Eastern front were commanded by then-Generaloberst Paul von Hindenburg (1847-1934). The battle took place 23-30 August 1914, between one German army and two Russian armies during WW I’sfirst month. The victory made von Hindenburg a hero in Germany, and he was showered with honors throughout the war. He ultimately became the Chief of the General Staff (Chef des Generalstabs) in 1916, and held that position until WW I’s end.
Today we are offering a patriotic tablecloth that commemorates the German victory at the Battle of Tannenberg. The tablecloth measures 50″ x 57 ½.” The predominant color is light-blue on a white background. Each corner sports a large portrait of von Hindenburg in uniform wearing a Pour le Mérite. The tablecloth features many designs that make enchanting enhancements to the overall display. In the center is a church, and below it the legend “Das Kirchlein zu Tannenberg” (the Tannenberg Chapel). The tablecloth is in excellent condition. It makes for a wonderful addition to any table, even if the table is larger than the tablecloth itself.
