Friedrich Paulus

Field Marshal Friedrich Paulus was a senior German Army commander during World War II. Paulus is best known as the commander of the Sixth Army, which was surrounded and utterly destroyed by the Soviet Red Army at Stalingrad, where he surrendered more than 250,000 German troops. Rather than committing suicide as Hitler expected, Paulus became a prisoner of the Soviets and eventually cooperated with them, offering radio broadcasts that were critical of the Nazis. After the war, he lived in East Germany. He died in 1957 at the age of 66, and his body was returned to Baden, West Germany, for burial beside his wife.
