The question is simply, what exactly did he do during the war? Can we fill in the blanks about the career in the Wehrmacht of this officer and his actual deeds? Especially, was he somehow connected to any units or personally involved in war crimes or not? For which deeds did he receive the two German Crosses?

Please note that the above is not intended to say from measly circumstantial evidence that "therefore he was a war criminal". The above does complain about a lack of information that should give anyone reason to be suspicious. But nothing more, and certainly not judging on that lack of info, as it doesn't present hard evidence either way.

In short: Bennecke's publically available bio has some gaps in his career, despite him having rare high awards, the same as some war criminals, and him continuing his career to highest levels in NATO. (Why is that?) Having such a career in the Wehrmacht is the opposite of ruling out involvement in war crimes, and equally such a career in NATO doesn't ensure a clean track record. So, what is the track record?
