- "What are you?"
- —Erich Ludendorff to Diana
The real life Erich Ludendorff died of liver cancer in the private clinic Josephinum in Munich, on 20 December 1937 at the age of 72. He was given — against his explicit wishes — a state funeral organized and attended by Hitler, who declined to speak at his eulogy. He was buried in the Neuer Friedhof in Tutzing.
The real life Erich Ludendorff also didn't look like Danny Huston's version either.
