Military Administration (Nazi Germany)
During World War II, Nazi Germany created military-led regimes in occupied territories which were known as a Military Administration (Militärverwaltung). These differed from Reichskommissariats which were led by Nazi Party officials. A Military Administration was led by a "Military Commander" (Militärbefehlshaber, official acronym MilBfh.).
The various Military Administrations created by Nazi Germany were:
- German military administration in occupied Poland, later divided into territories which were directly annexed into Germany, and the General Government (Generalgouvernement).
- Military Administration in Belgium and Northern France (Militärverwaltung in Belgien und Nordfrankreich)
- Military Administration in France (Militärverwaltung in Frankreich)
- Military Administration in Serbia (Militärverwaltung in Serbien)
- Military Administration in Greece (Militärverwaltung in Griechenland)
- The zone of occupied Soviet territory on the Eastern Front which were under military authority. Divided into Operational zones (Operationszone Ost) directly behind the front, and Army Rear Areas (Rückwärtige Heeresgebieten) further away.
