Leonard Kaupitsch in The War That Came EarlyEdit
As commander of German forces in Denmark, Leonard Kaupitsch set a very easy occupation policy, allowing the Danes to maintain their dignity and appearances of independence. Of course, everyone was aware that there was an iron hand within his velvet glove.
Peggy Druce attempted to meet with Kaupitsch to demand that he facilitate her departure from occupied Denmark, in accordance with Adolf Hitler's standing order that she be assisted in her passage to neutral countries. Druce did not meet Kaupitsch himself, but she did meet Major von Rehfeld, a high-ranking staff officer of the General's. Rehfeld assisted her in departing Denmark for Sweden.
