Fedor Von Bock
Birth: Dec. 3, 1880, Poland
Death: May 4, 1945
Oldenburg, Germany

German Field Marshal. He joined the German Army in 1898 and during the First World War, was awarded the Pour le Merite. By 1918 Bock had reached the rank of major. He remained in the army and rose through its ranks. In March of 1939 Bock led troops into Czechosolvakia. He was promoted to Generaloberst afterwards and was involved in the invasions of Poland and France. In 1940, Bock was one of twelve new field marshals created by Hitler. During the invasion of the Soviet Union in June of 1941, he was given the task of capturing Moscow. Before his troops could get to Moscow in the late summer of 1941, Hitler diverted part of his army to Leningrad and Kiev. It was not until October that Bock was able to resume his advance to Moscow. Bad weather caused him to halt his advance on the capital city in December of 1941 and this caused Hitler to replace him with Field Marshal Gunther von Kluge. After about a month, he returned to the Soviet Union to take command of the late Field Marshal von Reichenau's troops. While his troops were progressing slowly on the Russian Front, Hitler was not satisfied and replaced him again. On May 4, 1945 Bock, along with his wife and daughter, were killed during an Allied air raid on Hamburg. (bio by: Mr. Badger Hawkeye)
