German field marshals was given expensively decorated batons, so as to visibly distinguish them from other generals or high-ranking officers.

Field marshal (German: Generalfeldmarschall) was the highest military rank in Germany for seventy-five years.[1][a] Although the rank had existed since 1631 under a different name,[2] it was re-created in 1870 for Prince Friedrich Karl of Prussia and Emperor Frederick III for the purpose of making them senior to other generals.[2] It became the most prestigious and powerful rank an officer could reach until it was abolished in 1945.[1]

In total more than 100 generals have become field marshals, between 1806 and 1945. The vast majority of the people promoted field marshal won major battles in wars surrounding the their century. As a field marshal you played a compelling and influential role in military matters,[3] were tax-exempt, member of the nobility,[3] equal with government officials,[3] under constant protection or escort,[3] and had the right to directly report to the royal family.[3]

Weimar Republic (1918–33)[edit]

After the loss of the First World War, Germany was transformed into what became known as the Weimar Republic which worked according the laws of the Treaty of Versailles.[77] Some of the newly imposed conditions was the demobilization of the German Army to 100,000 men,[78] a reduction of the German Navy,[78] and the abolishment of the German Air Force.[78] As a result of the new military laws, the Weimar Republic saw no field marshal promotions.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ In 1940 Hermann Göring was promoted to Reichsmarschall, a rank higher than that of field marshal and was the only one to hold this rank. This was done so as to make Göring superior to other field marshals and recognize him as the second man in Hitler's Reich.[100]
