German general in the Wehrmacht of Nazi Germany during World War II.

From 15 October 1939 Felber was the chief of staff of the 2nd Army, becoming chief of staff of the Army Group Centre in February 1940. On 25 October 1940 he was given the command of the XVIII Army Corps and in 1942 transferred to the XXXXV (later renumbered to LXXXIII) Army Corps. On 21 May 1942 an Army Group named Felber was formed under his leadership. From 26 September to 27 October 1944 he headed the Army Group Serbia.

On 6 December 1944 he led the Corps Group Felber, which was renamed XIII Army Corps after the original XIII Corps had been wound up following their crushing defeat in the Lvov–Sandomierz Offensive. From 22 February to 25 March 1945 Felber was the commander of the 7th Army.

He died on 8 March 1962, aged 72, in Frankfurt am Main.
