Mates,

For some time we still see German officers either written in personal accounts and in the movies which show German officers in command of Ottoman formations during our fighting them?

These accounts are all wrong and should be confined to the dust bin of history.

German officers or SNCO's didn't command small Ottoman units, like the Battery commander in the movie, not to mention the Infantry commander in the trenches, and the engineer officer in the Town.

The closest to real life was a German officer on Corps Staff, while in this case there was no German officer on the 3rd (Ottoman) Corps in any records, but there may have been but no found as yet?

There were a number of German officers on staff of both the 7th and 8th Ottoman Armies including the future commander of the Africa Corps, Capt Arnim Hans J├╝rgen von who was aid to Kress 8th Army 1917-18 shown as Rittmeister (capt) later Col Gen Africa Korps (5th Panzer Army) PoW 1943.

Why we continue to show these Germans in small unit formations is unknown, as the Ottoman HQ formations didn't always have any German officers in them, and most officers didn't have that much control over Ottoman units and were only an advisery to the commander.

The so called conflict between the German officer and the Ottoman 3rd Corps commander (Ismet Bey) was right, as many Ottoman officers didn't trust these Germans and followed there own course.

What ever the movie shows the Commander 3rd Corps allowed for the false documents mentioned in the Movie and reinforced his line, and only the late arrival of units of the 15th Corps (19 Div), allowed his Corps to be pushed back when confronted by the two British Corps, which not only out numbered him in Infantry, Horse and Guns.

So when you watch this movie disreguard the Germans shown in the movie, as they were not there?

There were no German officers lost at Beersheba, either captured or killed

S.B
