The Army Group Rupprecht of Bavaria or Army Group A (German: Heeresgruppe Kronprinz Rupprecht von Bayern) was an Army Group of the German Army, which operated on the Western Front under command of Rupprecht, Crown Prince of Bavaria , between 28 August 1916 and 11 November 1918 during World War I. It was formed from the short-lived Army Group Gallwitz under Max von Gallwitz (19 July - 28 August 1916).


At the start of the Battle of the Somme (July 1916), the German 2nd Army had grown to such an extent, that a decision was made to split it into two armies. The 1st Army was recreated on 19 July 1916 from the right (northern) wing of the 2nd Army. The new commander of the reduced 2nd Army, Max von Gallwitz, was also installed as commander of Army Group Gallwitz (Heeresgruppe Gallwitz) to co-ordinate the actions of both armies on the Somme.[1]

On 28 August 1916, two extra armies (6th and 7th) were added to the Army Group, which was renamed Army Group Rupprecht of Bavaria, after its new commander Rupprecht, Crown Prince of Bavaria. The Army Group remained in place until the end of the war.
