Chronicle

The 67th Corps (z.b.V.) was formed on 17 September 1917.

With the onset of trench warfare, the German Army recognised that it was no longer possible to maintain the traditional Corps unit, that is, one made up of two divisions. Whereas at some times (and in some places) a Corps of two divisions was sufficient, at other times 5 or 6 divisions were necessary. Therefore, under the Hindenburg regime (from summer 1916), new Corps headquarters were created without organic divisions. These new Corps were designated General Commands for Special Use (German: Generalkommandos zur besonderen Verwendung).

67th Corps was still in existence at the end of the war.

Commanders

The 67th Corps was commanded throughout its existence by Generalleutnant Reinhard von Scheffer-Boyadel.
