Which Von Harbou in IR 91 in 1899?

Post by Svennie » 22 Jul 2011 19:03

Dear Prussian army experts,

on 20 March 1899, a Von Harbou graduated from the Hauptkadettenanstalt as a lieutenant and was posted to Infantry Regiment 91. He attended the Kriegsakademie between 1908 and 1911, the same class as Paul Hausser. Can someone tell me the first name of this Harbou and his future career? I think it may be Bodo von Harbou who eventually committed suicide in 1943, but could not find confirmation on the internet.

Thank you very much in advance.

Best regards,
Sven

Sven,

It was indeed Bodo von Harbou, born 12.12.1880 and committed suicide on 22.12.1943 as Oberst i. Gen. St. d. Oberbefehlshaber in Belgien. I have another source which says he died in either Jul or Aug 1944. Not too sure if that is correct, but I thought I would add this to my response.
