German officer, the last Luftwaffe General of the Air Force during the Second World War. Wilberg is considered one of the premier strategists behind blitzkrieg and was significantly influenced by the German air war doctrine.
Hermann Göring, in command of the Luftwaffe, considered making Wilberg Chief of Staff. However, it was revealed Wilberg had a Jewish mother. Not wishing his talent to go to waste, Göring had him reclassified "Aryan" and Wilberg remained in the air staff, helping draw up the principle doctrine, "The Conduct of the Aerial War", and its "Regulation 16" under Walther Wever.
On 20 November 1941, he was killed in a plane crash near Dresden, on his way to the funeral of Ernst Udet.
