Colonel general

colonel general was later the designation of highest regularly attainable general rank in the Prussian army, also in the contingent army of the Kaiser era, in the realm resistance and in the army and the Air Force of the armed forces. Only the general field marshal still ranked over him. In the armed forces corresponded to the colonel generalin the war navy the general admiral. 1940 ago it gave still the special stage to “colonel general with rank as a general field marshal.” This rank was lent if a colonel general in times of peace should be carried, which was however not possible, because general field marshals usually only in the warwere appointed.

In the national People's Army the colonel general was second highest regular rank after the army general (and the not rank of a “Marshal of the GDR “assigned in the history of the NVA).

Since the German Federal Armed Forces oriented themselves in its general ranks at the United States,the rank “four-stars- of a general corresponds to that of an general-upper.

Even in further armies world-wide the colonel general corresponds to the general, so for example in slawischen states, where the sequence similarly the old German system major general - lieutenant general - colonel general ( general polkovnik) - army general reads.
