biographical name Gerhard Johann David von 1755-1813 Prussian general

Britannica Concise

Prussian general. He joined the Hanoverian army in 1778 and served with distinction in Belgium against the French in the 1790s. An officer in the Prussian army from 1801, he taught at the war academy and became chief of staff in the war against Napoleon (1806). As head of the army reform commission (from 1807), he developed the modern general staff system and reorganized the Prussian army; with A. von Gneisenau he devised the system of rapid military training and use of army reserves. After a forced retirement, he became chief of staff to G. von Blü cher (1813) and died of a wound received in the Battle of Lü tzen.
