General der Flieger Arabesque...
Ritter von Pohl (15 April 1893 – 26 July 1951) was a highly decorated General der Flieger in the Luftwaffe during World War II.. He was also a recipient of the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross..The Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross was awarded to recognise extreme battlefield bravery or successful military leadership.. Maximilian Ritter von Pohl was captured by American troops in May 1945 and was held until 1947..General der Flieger (literally: General of the Flyers) was a General of the branch rank of the German Luftwaffe..

The One That Got Away Theatrical Poster...

The Knight's Cross was the highest award made by Nazi Germany to recognise extreme battlefield bravery or outstanding military leadership during World War II.. In the military orders of the Third Reich, it was second only to the Grand Cross of the Iron Cross (Großkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes), an award that was given only once, to Nazi leader and Hitler's second-in-command Hermann Göring.. He was granted it as a result of his services in building up the Luftwaffe (the German air force), and for serving as its commander-in-chief.. The Knight's Cross was therefore functionally the highest order that German soldiers of all rank could obtain..., RAF intelligence?. Hello, RAF..I'm looking for the microphone hidden near the window of my room.. This is Oberluetnant Von Werra calling the RAF, are you recieving me?..
