As the threadtitle indicates, I was wondering if anybody had a number for the losses of German generals in WW2.
If possible, further breakdown of the total number would be appreciated.
number of marshalls, generals, lieutenant-generals, major-generals
(i'm sure the German system has a few more distinctions, but basically from major-general up with total for each)
manner of loss - total in combat vs. noncombat
by position - how many (deputy) army(group) commanders, (deputy) chiefs of staff, (deputy) corps commanders, divisional commanders, rear/admin, others?
circumstance - combat, injuries sustained in combat, MIA, captured, killed by mines, died in air crashes, died in car crashes, disease, shot by higher-ups, committed suicide to avoid capture, committed suicide.
Similar numbers for the Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine if you have them would also be good.
(Though some might not apply as much e.g. landmines and some might need a bit of translation e.g. ranks)
