List of Divisions of the Imperial German Army

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following is a list of Divisions of the Imperial German Army.


The basic tactical formation was the division. A standard Imperial German division was organized into:

  • Division HQ
  • two infantry brigades organized into a brigade HQ and two regiments each (either of the line or light infantry),
  • a cavalry brigade organized into a brigade HQ and two regiments
  • an artillery brigade organized into an HQ and two regiments
  • Combat service and support regiments under division HQ

One of the divisions in a corps area usually also managed the corps Landwehr region (Landwehrbezirk). In 1914, besides the Guard Corps (two Guard divisions and a Guard cavalry division), there were 42 regular divisions in the Prussian Army (including four Saxon divisions and two Württemberg divisions), and six divisions in the Bavarian Army.

These divisions were all mobilized in August 1914. They were reorganized, receiving engineer companies and other support units from their corps, and giving up most of their cavalry to form cavalry divisions. Reserve divisions were also formed, Landwehr brigades were aggregated into divisions, and other divisions were formed from replacement (Ersatz) units. As World War I progressed, additional divisions were formed, and by wars' end, 251 divisions had been formed or reformed in the German Army's structure.
