Dear Andreas,
You are right with Your saying about political
situation with the early German confederation in the
beginning of WWI, but You failed about the nowadays
structure of the archives. There do still exist those
regional archives like in Bavaria (see context above),
Saxonia, Wurtemberg and so on .., but apart >from that
there is the big National Archive existing with
diverse collections of registers, of historical
interest in different places,founded after WWII,
divided in order of specification, and beginning with
roughly the year 1875. Most helpful for military use
may be the WASt-deposit in Berlin as well as the
Militärarchiv deposit in Freiburg/Br. Kind regards
