Max Hoffmann

Hoffmann, Max, 1869–1927, German general in World War I. A brilliant strategist, he contributed to the German victory over the Russians at Tannenberg and in 1916 became chief of staff of the eastern armies. As military representative he helped negotiate the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk with Russia. In his war diary and later books he bitterly criticized the German high command.
