Württemberg

, Ben Weisman, Kay Twomey and German bandleader Bert Kaempfert, was based on a German folk song by Friedrich Silcher, '''Olaf Saile''' (August 27, 1901 - June 29, 1952) was a German (Germany) writer born in Weitingen (Eutingen im Gäu), Württemberg. Saile's principal claim to fame is the historical novel ''Kepler, Roman einer Zeitwende'' first published in German (German language) in Stuttgart in 1938 and many times reprinted. It is an imagined biography of the life and times of the astronomer and mathematician Johannes Kepler. The novel was translated into English (English language) by James A Galston and published in New York in 1940 by Oskar Piest, under the title ''Troubadour of the Stars''. The novel has occasionally been interpreted as a coded protest against the Nazi régime which Saile had experienced at first hand. Following the banning of the Social Democratic Party (Social Democratic Party (Germany)) by the Nazis, in June 1933 as editor of the newspaper ''Rathenower Zeitung'', during the subsequent wave of arrests Olaf Saile was briefly detained in the Oranienburg Concentration Camp, during which time he was maltreated. His release was apparently secured after a friend and fellow-journalist Käthe Lambert used her journalistic credentials to enter the camp and then to write a report detailing conditions there. They subsequently married. Saile died at the age of 50 and was buried in the Church of St. Bernhardt in Esslingen am Neckar. Käthe Saile is buried alongside her husband. Falkenhayn (Erich von Falkenhayn)'s forces made several probing attacks into the mountain passes held by the Romanian Army to see if there were weaknesses in the Romanian defences. After several weeks, he concentrated his best troops (the elite ''Alpen Korps'') in the south for an attack on the Vulcan Pass. The attack (Battle of Vulcan Pass) was launched on November 10. One of the young officers was the future Field Marshal Erwin Rommel. On November 11, then-Lieutenant Rommel led the Württemberg Mountain Company in the capture of Mount Lescului. The offensive pushed the Romanian defenders back through the mountains and into the plains by November 26. There was already snow covering the mountains and soon operations would have to halt for the winter. Advances by other parts of Falkenhayn's Ninth Army (9th Army (German Empire)) also pushed through the mountains; the Romanian Army was being ground down by the constant battle and their supply situation was becoming critical. * Michałów (Michałów, Pińczów County) (1953) of Poland, which breeds Arabians. *Marbach stud, (1477) also known as Weil-Marbach, Württemberg (present day Germany).
