Looks Like a German General
Looks like General der Panzertruppe Wilhelm Josef Ritter von Thoma. Relinquished command of the 15th Panzer Division to assume leadership of the German Afrika Korps. Although formally appointed to command on 1 September 1942, various sources indicate Ritter von Thoma did not actually arrive in North Africa to take command of the German Afrika Korps until the 17th of September. 4 November 1942: Captured by the British at Tel el Mampsra, west of El Alamein, Egypt.
