Dear madam, Dear sir,

I am currently working on my doctoral thesis in Geography “The development and use of estates in Northeastern Mecklenburg, Germany in the 19th and 20th century. By looking for one of the former owners of Viecheln I found your homepage and was delighted to find information on Hermann von Hanneken.

I would like to make two corrections, though. Hannekens birthplace is not Vicheln, but VIECHELN which is in Mecklenburg, not Prussia. Bill Wall might have been misled by the fact that Hanneken was a Prussian General.

Viecheln is situated about 45 kms east southeast of the port city of Rostock on the Baltic sea. Not being a Chess player myself, I still do not know what the Hanneken defense is.

Best regards from Hamburg, Germany.
