During World War I he served mostly as Adjutant in various units. During the interwar era, he held numerous staff assignments and continued to rise through the army's ranks under the Nazi regime. However, his aspiring career ended abruptly in January 1939, when he was sent into retirement on political grounds because of his marriage to a Jewish woman. Reactivated again upon the start of World War II, Agricola received exclusively positions behind the front line. As rear area commander of the 2nd Army in the occupied Soviet union during 1941/43, Agricola brought changes in the Wehrmacht's harsh occupation policies and was successful in maintaining control of his area of occupied territory from Soviet partisans. Shortly after the war's end, he was arrested by Soviet authorities, convicted of war crimes and remained in captivity for a decade. One of the last German prisoners in the Soviet Union, he was released in October 1955 and died shortly thereafter in West Germany. (en)

dbp:quote
  • "Now the population is greatly affected by our need to exploit the land for our purposes. The food rations issued to the population are lower than those that the Soviets provided. From this point of view, we can expect neither a positive nor a moderate opinion about us [the German troops]. A decision the Russians in the occupied territories would expect from us, would clarify the situation and allow us to do a systematic work."
