This article states that Vlaso's final fate is unknown but according to the Other Wiki he was quite simply hung.

TOW doesn't seem to cite a source for that claim. My own claim was based on Anthony Beevor's book Berlin: The Downfall 1945 - the lurid rumors of his torture and execution were KGB spread. If you have a source for TOW's version of events, feel free to change it. :)

Found a source for the "just hung story" here, which also mentions the primary source, the Izvestia Soviet newspaper of august 2 1946, meaning his death was public knowledge. .

As for the method of death, apparently another defected general was the source for the Cruel and Unusual Death rumor.

Good edit.

...do we have an NKVD source for it, though? I'm not saying that everything in Pravda, etcetc, is lies but still.

Great find, though. ^_^

Can we rename this "Gnazis with Gnarly Weapons"? Please?

Oh, that is brilliant. I've made it a redirect for now; don't know about making it the actual name in the future.

Also, Generalfeldmarschall Ferdinand Schörner held the job of Commander in Chief of the Heer only from 30 April 1945 to 8 May 1945. Throughout the war, the Commander in Chief had been the Führer himself, after the dismissal of Generalfeldmarschall Walther von Brauchitsch on 10 December 1941.

...I thought Brauschitsch had only been head of Armegruppe Mittel? o_0

...everyday I learn more of my own ignorance -_-

The second in command of the Waffen SS has not been Hermann Fegelein (his positions as a flag officer had been: commander of the 8th SS Division Florian Geyer from April 1942 to January 1944 and liaison officer at the Führer's HQ from 1 January 1944 to 27 April 1945, when he was court-martialed and executed). The officer in charge of the SS military administration (SS-Führungshauptamt) which was directly subordinate to Heinrich Himmler and therefore operational chief of the SS had been SS-Obergruppenführer Hans Jüttner.

I've removed the sentence "It's hard to get a horse to wear a gas mask." from the Hooves and Halftracks section, due to a google search for equine gasmasks producing an enormous number of photos of horses wearing a very large variety of gasmask and the fact that a domestic horse will have equipment on its face/head as a basic element of being kept by humans; the most basic of training is to wear a halter and be led with it.
