Peiper: Final rank Obersturmbannfuhrer or Standartenfuhrer?

Post by Wolfkin » Fri Jan 21, 2005 3:43 pm

Hello!

I am trying to determine whether Jochen Peiper's final rank was that of an Obersturmbannfuhrer or of a Standartenfuhrer. I have conflicting information in my sources. Thank you in advance!

Cheers,

Wolfkin

Hello Arminius!

Thank you for this information! Do you know the date that he was promoted to Standartenfuhrer?

Cheers,

strange, but many sources say that Peiper was a Colonel during his time in the Ardennes offensive, and Colonel in SS Ranks is Standatenfuhrer, so it's all confusing :?

Hello 17SS!

Taking in the amount of posts, opinions and feelings about Jochen Peiper, you could almost believe that he really was a high and mighty SS-Oberstgruppenführer und Generaloberst der Waffen-SS... :wink:
