Chapter 6 App A: Superior Headquarters and miscellaneous formations

This Appendix lists those superior headquarters and miscellaneous formations that are not dealt with in succeeding appendices. They are listed in the following order, but some overlapping occurs as will be seen on studying the detail: - HFront, HGp, Armeen, AGp., Korps and Gp: under each such heading Austro-Hungarian headquarters & formations are shown before German ones. The preponderance of the latter indicates the extent to which, as the war progressed, the Germans virtually assumed command of the fighting on all but the Italian front.

Entries are against a date on which the detail shown was correct. Wherever possible that detail includes the superior headquarters under which the headquarters or formation operated on that date; the name of its commander; the location of its headquarters; and the elements under command. Chapter 6 should be read before using this Appendix.
