During World War II, Nazi Germany created military-led regimes in occupied territories which were known as a Military Administration (Militärverwaltung). These differed from Reichskommissariate which were led by Nazi Party officials. A Military Administration was led by a "Military Commander" (Militärbefehlshaber, official acronym MilBfh.).
The various Military Administrations created by Germany were:
- Military Administration in Poland (Militärverwaltung in Polen), later divided into territories which were directly annexed into Germany, and the General Government (Generalgouvernement).
- Military Administration in France (Militärverwaltung in Frankreich)
- Military Administration in Belgium and Northern France (Militärverwaltung in Belgien und Nordfrankreich)
- Military Administration in Greece (Militärverwaltung in Griechenland)
- Military Administration in Serbia (Militärverwaltung in Serbien)
- Military Administration in the Soviet Union (Militärverwaltung in der Sowjetunion), divided into Operational zones (Operationszone Ost) directly behind the front, and Army Rear Areas (Rückwärtige Heeresgebieten) further away.
