|1. S.L.A. Marshall|
|2. Franz Halder|
Due to Marshall’s efforts the project was officially adopted and went on even after his departure from Europe. The former Chief of Oberkommando des Heeres, Franz Halder joined in and headed the program for fifteen years. Well known are the clashes between Halder and Guderian, during the program, and the cliques that were formed around the two former Chiefs of OKH. Guderian was released from captivity in 1948, and departed from the program, leaving Halder’s position unchallenged. Halder, after his own release, continued to work as a U.S. Army civilian employee until 1961. He was awarded the Meritorious Civilian Service Award.
