According to Colonel-General G. F. Krivosheev's "Soviet Casualties and Combat Losses in the Twentieth Century,"

1,226 officers, 1,553 NCOs, and 1,200 privates were wounded "7 or more times" in the GPW.

here is my closest runner up--

Guards Armor Colonel I. M. Dovgy was wounded SIX times

2 being severely and 4 times lightly.

Again citing General Krovosheev's statistics:

2,496 officers, 3,395 NCOs, and 3,234 privates were wounded 6 times in the GPW.

By contrast, a total of 1,480,324 Soviet military personnel were wounded just once.

I can not begin to guess as to who will win this contest. I do think, however, that it would be interesting to mention a fellow from the other side. Lt. Gen. Theodor Tolsdorff (Tolsdorff the Mad) was wounded eleven or fourteen times, depending upon the source.

Refer to ?On the Field of Honor? by LTC John R. Angolia, vol. 1, page 101/2 (fourteen times) and http://www.thirdreichruins.com/hirschbichl.htm (eleven times).

That is one heck of a set Dave! I am still in love with that Marshal's tunic!

Here is my only visual contribution...

Red is for minor wounds, right?

Gentlemen,

The best I can offer - Gds. Sr. Sgt. Pytor Nickoliavitch Bareebin who ultimately became a Cavalier of the Order of Glory - four wound stripes.

Nice one Wild Card! Do you know any of the stories behind his Order of Glory citations?
