 Field Marshal Ferdinand Schorner   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
An able soldier though an even more talented sycophant, Schorner's ostentatious Nazism won him rapid promotion during the war.
He remained in command of Army Group North, isolated in the Courland pocket, for six months, July 1944 to January 1945, and then took command of Army Group Center in Czechoslovakia, whence, far from communicating the gravity of its predicament to Hitler, Schorner fed him with promises of victory.
For his soft words he achieved the height of his ambition: the by-then-empty title of Commander-in-Chief of the German Army, which he held for ten days between Hitler's suicide and the surrender.

By 1945 the OKW commanded all German forces in every theatre apart from those on the Eastern Front which were under OKH control and which, before his suicide, had reported directly to Hitler.
So it was not clear if Schörner was under the command of OKW on May 8 or if Reichspräsident ("President of Germany") Karl Dönitz, or Reichskanzler von Krosigk, needed to order Schorner to surrender.

The largest contingent not to do so were Army Group Centre under the command of Field Marshal Ferdinand Schorner who had been promoted to Commander-in-Chief of the Army on April 30 in Hitler's last testament.
