German Nazi military, a Sturmbannführer (Major), in the Waffen-SS during World War II. In February 1943 he was the commander of the 2nd Battery, 2nd SS Sturmgeschütz (Assault Gun, StuG) Battalion. During September 1943 in the Raum sector the division was under attack by the Russians; Röhder's Battery was able to withdraw to defend the last bridge over the River Worskla, so the rest of the Division could pull back over it before it had to be blown up. For this action he was awarded the Knight's Cross and promoted to Hauptsturmführer (Captain) in January 1944. In June 1944, during the Normandy invasion he was given command of the Sturmgeschütz Battalion; he was wounded in July 1944 and was awarded the German Cross in Gold for bravery in August 1944 and promoted to Sturmbannführer. He was wounded for a second time losing an eye, and being no longer fit for front line duty he was stationed in Prague, where he was reported missing on 16 May 1945.
