As Germany mobilized in August 1914, General Leo von Stocken was engaged on the Western Front, heading up Friedrich Sixt von Armin's IV. Army Corps staff. As the War progressed, he additionally commanded a reserve infantry division, as well as both Landwehr and Ersatz divisions.

Leo von Stocken was the son of Generalleutnant Eduard von Stocken (1824–1897) Maria Hedwig nee Quassowski (1832–1906). The Stocken family was elevated into the German nobility in 1871 due to Eduard's demonstrated bravery during the Franco-Prussian War.  General von Stocken was married to Anna von Steinkeller, with whom he had a son, Eduard.
