Mistake?[edit]

As far as I know, General von Senger und Etterlin's first name was "Fridolin". Furthermore, I think that the book "Die deutschen Panzer" was written by his son, Ferdinand Maria von Senger und Etterlin (look for example here or here).--84.159.203.158 10:06, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

"Die deutschen Panzer" was definitely written by his son, Ferdinand. Cyberherbalist (talk) 06:36, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

Requested quotations[edit]

I've requested quotations for these two statements:

  • Frido von Senger und Etterlin was one of the generals who opposed the principles of Nazism, and he refused to carry out Hitler's order to execute some 200 Italian officers taken prisoner after Italy switched sides.[1][need quotation to verify] Though he did not take part in the July 20 Plot to kill Hitler, his known anti-Nazi feelings resulted in his contribution to the defence of Cassino being played down by the German authorities.[2][need quotation to verify]
