Maybe not Germans but, Prussian officers.
Erm...Prussian officers were Germans, you know? ;)
Officers of the German Empire under the Kaiser....
But I guess it may been quite possible don't you agree?
Not really Gruni.
Germany was on the brink of destruction with a civil war already raging, also in the army, threatening to destroy the old world order, in the midst of losing the biggest war to date with an absolute uncertain future, still starving to death because of the Anglo-french blockade, with no idea that they would lose 1/4 of their territory soon...no, Poles had been not much in the german minds.
But if there would had been surely some literature about that. But nothing I read till today showed any sign of the East featuring in any way in the mess Germany had been in 1918.
The re-shuffling of the borders later in Versailles was the starting point actually...
