German First World War portrait medal by L Habich commemorating the German field commander Feldmarschall Duke Albrecht
of Württemberg (1865-1939). On the outbreak of war in 1914 Albrecht commanded the German Fourth Army and led it on its western advance
through the Ardennes to the Marne. In October 1914 the Fourth Army was switched to Flanders and took part in the vicious fighting around
Ypres. Promoted to full Field Marshal in August 1916, Albrecht was given command of 'Army Group Albrecht' on the southern sector of the
Western Front in February 1917. He remained in this theatre of operations until November 1918.
