Sylvester Stadler

Sylvester Stadler was one of the youngest German generals during World War II. He took command of the 9th SS Tank Division "Hohenstaufen" in just 33 years. During the war, he proved many times directly on the front line that he is an exceptional commander. As one of the 24 SS soldiers, he was the holder of the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords. His name has never been associated with war crimes.
