Fedor von Bock

Moritz Albrecht Franz Friedrich Fedor von Bock (3 December 1880 – 4 May 1945) was a German officer who served in the German army during the WWI and WWII. He commanded Army Group groups during the invasions of Poland, France, and the Soviet Union. He also commanded the ultimately failed attempt to capture Moscow during the autumn and winter of 1941.

Bock—along with his second wife and his stepdaughter—were killed by a strafing British fighter-bomber on 4 May 1945 as they traveled by car toward Hamburg.
