    Vizeadmiral Maximilian Graf von Spee - Iron Cross ?

    Recommended Posts

    In paintings he has the EK II, and on small statues he carries the EK I ... but I cannot prove that he received both. Do you happen to have his promotion dates? Thank you!


    Here is a picture from the Book "Die großen Deutschen im Bild" (Hg. von Alfred Hentzen & Niels v. Holst).
