Generalmajor der Reserve[edit]

The German Arméd Forces had and have no Generals/Admirals "der Reserve". Generals/Admirals are always regular and professional "life long" serving officers.

The current version states that Strachwitz was "seriously wounded" in the Stalingrad Kessel and flown out- this would have been in Dec 1942. The next section states that he took command of a GD regiment in January 1943. How serious could that have been if he assumed a new command in a few weeks?

I am wondering if "seriously wounded" is the best translation. What does the original German text say? Rumiton (talk) 02:25, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
schwer verwundet MisterBee1966 (talk) 06:22, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
Hard to get away from that; "seriously wounded" is the only translation that fits, but I agree it doesn't work with his quick return to command. There is some leeway, though. Maybe if we just change it to "wounded". We are sure of that, while "schwer" might be a matter of opinion. Rumiton (talk) 13:10, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Hyazinth[edit]

We have two spellings for this. Can we choose one? Rumiton (talk) 12:58, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

Good question. Most sources except for Röll, who uses Hyacinth, all use Hyazinth. The "correct" at least if his grave stone is correct is Hyacinth. see picture of grave stone. I beleive Wiki policy would be to use the variable variant over the correct variant MisterBee1966 (talk) 15:29, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
Strachwitz's entry in Genealogisches Handbuch des Adels, (which is considered quite a reliable source when it comes to german nobility) uses the spelling "Hyacinth" as well Jake V (talk) 20:46, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
To make it more interesting, the grave finder site also spells it Hyaczinth. Can we agree on Hyacinth? Rumiton (talk) 15:20, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

The Spartacists[edit]

The current wording in the lead implies that he fought on the side of the renegades, but I am thinking he would have been Freikorps or perhaps regular army still. Comments? Rumiton (talk) 14:59, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

He was with the Freikorps MisterBee1966 (talk) 08:19, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
OK, thanks. I will make that clearer. Rumiton (talk) 13:52, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
I see it was already clear in the main text. I should have looked more closely. :) Rumiton (talk) 14:05, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Versailles[edit]

The Weimar section states that he returned home in "early 1919" and then goes on to say how the family situation had been altered by the Treaty of Versailles. But the Treaty was not signed until 28 June 1919, and not ratified until 21 October 1919. It is probably just a matter of grammar. Can we clarify this? Rumiton (talk) 16:27, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Distillery[edit]

Is the distillery output in litres per year? Rumiton (talk) 12:16, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

30 advisors?[edit]

Who were these guys? Were they German ex-military people or someone else? Rumiton (talk) 14:13, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

I'll review this article shortly.--Tomobe03 (talk) 13:16, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

  • done, except for two instances of info in the infobox. This eases reading on mobile devices MisterBee1966 (talk) 09:21, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
  • According to WP:SURNAME full names (with rank where applicable) should be mentioned on the first instance of the name only. Afterwards, only the surname (without the rank) should be noted. I noticed this in case of Kleist, Rundstedt, Hube and Guderian, so far, but there may be more of such instances - please check for others.
  • Copyvio Detector indicates no problems with copyright related issues (no action required)
  • Please add a US Public Domain tag at the commons for image File:Strachwitz-Wappen2.png (other images have appropriate licenses and sourcing)
  • The final sentence of the first paragraph of the "After World War II and final years" section is not referenced. Pleae provide a reference.
  • Out of six notes, only one (5th) is referenced. Please provide references to the remaining five.
  • Besides the above two issues, sourcing appears to be in order. (no further action requried)
  • According to MOS:YEAR, year ranges such as 1902–1922 should be presented as 1902–22 (provided both years belong to the same century)

Those are the most significant issues here, especially referencing. I'll have another read-through of the prose once the references are completed though.--Tomobe03 (talk) 12:48, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Everything seems to be in order now. Passing--Tomobe03 (talk) 12:14, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
