World War I

Vice Admiral Hubert von Rebeur-Paschwitz (14 August 1863 Frankfurt (Oder) – 16 February 1933 (Dresden)) was a German admiral. In 1899 he served as the German Naval attache to Washington and later in 1912 commanded a flotilla of German vessels that visited the United States. During World War I he was transferred to the Black Sea in order to command the Central Powers naval forces that had previously been under the command of Admiral Souchon who had been recalled to the High Seas Fleet in 1917. Rebeur-Paschwitz decided to launch an offensive into the Mediterranean Sea which ended in his defeat at the Battle of Imbros.
