Paul von Hindenburg (1847–1934) was a battle-hardened general summoned back from retirement at the start of World War I. He and General Erich Ludendorff became popular with the German people after early successes against Russia and were often in disagreement with General Erich von Falkenhayn, chief of staff and supreme commander of the German army.
