Bundesarchiv Bild 183-E00780, Walther von Brauchitsch

Heinrich Alfred Hermann Walther von Brauchitsch was a German field marshal and the Commander-in-Chief of the German Army in the early years of the war. After Hitler's rise to power, Brauchitsch was put in charge of the East Prussian Military District, and became a very popular officer because of his kindness to the civilian Prussian population in times of local fires. Although he personally disliked Nazism, he borrowed immense sums of money from Hitler and eventually became dependent on his financial help. During the First War, Brauchitsch primarily served as Commander-in-Chief of the German Army.
