Gerhard von Schwerin (1899-1980)Download nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Gerhard von Schwerin (1899-1980)

Description: Gerhard von Schwerin (Gerhard Helmuth Detloff Graf von Schwerin; June 23, 1899-October 29, 1980), shown in 1950, was a German Army general in WWI, commanding the 116th Panzer Division. In May 1950, he was appointed chief advisor for West German military issues and security to Chancellor Konrad Adenauer (January 5, 1876-April 19, 1967). He was replaced in that position in October 1950 after talking in detail with the press about his intelligence work. He posed a threat to the authority of Reinhard Gehlen (April 3, 1902-June 8, 1979), German officer, who served as chief of German Military Intelligence on the Eastern Front during WWII. Following the war, Gehlen surrendered to U.S. forces, offering the U.S. his intelligence services. He was accepted and established a spy network directed at the Soviet Union in Germany and elsewhere, which was known as the Gehlen Organization. He later headed West German Intelligence, becoming the first President of its Federal Intelligence Service (BND) in 1968.
