Each board measures 54.5 mm x 115.5 mm. This is a very scare and massive pair of boards that are in excellent condition and display beautifully. The exalted nature of the rank of Generalfeldmarschall was evident during World War I as only five German officers (excluding honorary promotions to members of royal families and foreign officers) were designated Generalfeldmarschall. These were Paul von Hindenburg, August von Mackensen, Karl von Bülow, Hermann von Eichhorn, and Remus von Woyrsch. Although well-known and capable German commanders, even German Generals Erich Ludendorff and Erich von Falkenhayn did not received the coveted marshal's batons.The item "WWI PRUSSIAN FIELD MARSHAL'S SHOULDER BOARDS MATCHED PAIR" is in sale since Wednesday, November 15, 2017.
