The details

Bernhard Franz Karl Adolf von Hülsen (20 April 1865 – 21 April 1950) was a German general.

He was the son of Prussian colonel lieutenant Hermann von Hülsen (1816–1867) and his second wife Helene, née von Clausewitz. Later general of infantry Walter von Hülsen (1863–1947) was his older brother.

Hülsen married on 31 July 1896 in Berlin Magdalene von Schaper.

On 26 December 1918 after World War I, Hülsen formed the Freikorps (von) Hülsen, a paramilitary unit which participated in the suppression of the Spartacist League in Berlin. In 1921 Generalleutnant von Hülsen commanded units in the Battle of Annaberg in Upper Silesia. In 1922 he published Der Kampf um Oberschlesien.
