Arnold Ritter von Möhl
(26.3.1867 - 27.12.1944)
place of birth: Nandlstadt, Bayern (Bavaria)
entered the Royal Bavarian military service in 1884. Before the
First World War, he directed the Bavarian War Academy in Munich and was
transferred to command a regiment at mobilization. As the War
progressed, he held postings as I. Bavarian Army Corps Chief of Staff
and a Brigade commander, finally receiving command of his own division,
the 16th Royal Bavarian. In 1918, the final year of the conflict,
was awarded both the Pour le Merite and the Knight's Cross of the Militär-Max-Joseph-Order.
Continuing military service in the Weimar Republic's Reichswehr, Ritter
was promoted to General der Infanterie in March of 1922. He then retired
from the Army in December 1924 and became an active member of the
pre-Nazi Kyffhäuserbund, a German war veteran's organization. He
spent his final years in Starnberg, Bavaria, and died there shortly
before the end of World War Two.
