Armee-Abteilung Woyrsch (Army Detachment "Woyrsch") was an army level command of the German Army in World War I. It served on the Eastern Front throughout its existence.


Armee-Abteilung Woyrsch was formed on 3 November 1914 under the command of Generaloberst Remus von Woyrsch. It was dissolved on 15 December 1917.[1]


Armee-Abteilung Woyrsch was commanded throughout it existence by Generaloberst (later Generalfeldmarschall) Remus von Woyrsch.[2] Woyrsch was the commander of the Landwehr Corps, an appointment he retained concurrently until 20 September 1916. A deputy, Generalleutnant Götz Freiherr von König,[3] took command of Landwehr Corps on 3 December 1914. On 29 August 1916, Woyrsch also took over command of Heeresgruppe Leopold from Generalfeldmarschall Prince Leopold of Bavaria and the command was renamed Heeresgruppe Woyrsch.[4][5]


  • Armee-Abteilung or Army Detachment in the sense of "something detached from an Army". It is not under the command of an Army so is in itself a small Army.[6]
  • Armee-Gruppe or Army Group in the sense of a group within an Army and under its command, generally formed as a temporary measure for a specific task.
  • Heeresgruppe or Army Group in the sense of a number of armies under a single commander.
