Prussian infantry officer Gottfried Marquard joined the 97th Infantry Regiment in October 1883. Prior to the War, Marquard was a colonel serving on the Great General Staff in Berlin. Upon mobilization, he was appointed Chief of Staff with General Günther Graf von Kirchbach's X. Reserve Corps. He was severely wounded in late August 1914, but returned to action to serve throughout most of the War as a Chief of Staff at both the corps level and field army level. Marquard was a divisional commander during the final year of the War, but was relieved of duty in late September 1918 due to health reasons. He died in Bad Homburg shortly thereafter.
