Biography


Heinrich Adolf Wild von Hohenborn (8 July 1860 – 25 October 1925) was a German officier of the Prussian Army, Generalleutnant during the First World War. From 21 January 1915 to 29 October 1916 he also served as minister of war. He retired 3 November 1919 with the rank of General der Infanterie.

Life

During his term as minister of war, he was critical of Hindenburg and particularly his 'Arbeitspflichtprogramm' (forced labour program). Wild von Hohenborn promulgated the Judenzählung on 11 October 1916 but did not remain in office long enough to implement it, as on 29 October he was dismissed from the High Command by Wilhelm II at Hindenburg's request.
