Description
Generaloberst Hans von Seeckt (1866-1936, Germany) was Chief of Staff of Field Marshal von Mackensen's army group in World War I. In that capacity he had a leading part in planning the Central Powers' breakthrough of the Russian front in 1915 and the conquest of Serbia in the latter part of that year. After World War I, as military head of the Reichswehr, he was considered the organizer and "father" of the army of the German Republic. This collection of von Seeckt's private and official papers from the U.S. National Archives, consists, in general, of correspondence, reports, diaries, draft articles, newspaper clippings, maps, and some genealogical materials.
