Anyhow a little history of Ludendorff Kaserne.
Before we started drinking all that Hofbrau and Dinkel Acker
it was HQ for the Wehrmacht's 5th Artillery Regiment during the war.
The Kaserne was originally named in honor of Gen. Erich Ludendorff.
General Ludendorff was a World War I hero (and early member of the Nazi Party),
the original plaque still remains(remained) at the main gate (where is it now!?!).
Ludendorff was one of the major participants in the 1923 Munich putsch,
in which the early Nazi Party attempted to take over the Bavarian government.
General Ludendorff marched with Hitler to the Feldherrnhalle,
where he was the only marcher to advance against the line of police without retreating.
FRENCH CAPTURE STUTTGART APRIL 21, 1945
Following the capture of Nuremberg, the 7th Army discovered little resistance as the
XXI Corps′ 12th Armored Division dashed 50 mi (80 km) to the Danube, crossing it on 22 April,
followed several days later by the rest of the corps and the XV Corps as well.
Meanwhile, on the 7th Army's right the VI Corps had moved southeast alongside the French 1st Army.
In a double envelopment, the French captured Stuttgart on 21 April 1945
and by the next day both the French and the VI Corps had elements on the Danube.
Shortly thereafter Hofbrau's for all.
