Gefreiter Hitler's First War





jajarvin
I have been reading Thomas Weber's book: 'Hitler's First War: Adolf Hitler, the Men of the List Regiment, and the First World War'.

It is interesting to find out that Hitler was never at a rank equivalent to a U.S. Army corporal during the First World War.
That depends on a mistranslation of the German term Gefreiter.
The correct translation for Gefreiter would be private first class.
Hitler had no line of command over anyone else during the First World War.

It’s quite wrong to describe Hitler as Corporal Hitler.
