In the turbulent times of the post-First World War era, new political parties emerged frequently in Germany, many with opposing extremist policies. The Communist movement grew out of the Socialist working classes using the Russian Bolshevik Party as a template. In direct opposition, the new National Socialist German Workers’ Party under the leadership of Adolf Hitler occupied the extreme right-wing position. Head-on conflict was inevitable and both parties organised violent demonstrations against the other.

Hitler recognised that he was physically vulnerable and ordered the formation of his own protection squad, made up of loyal men who would not shirk from a fight. From the rudimentary ranks of Hitler’s select few grew the infant SS, a modern praetorian guard, which developed over the years into a massive and efficient military style force with tentacles spreading into all elements of everyday life in Nazi Germany. To administer this organisation, Hitler appointed leaders upon whom he could rely.

Many names remain obscure, but this book highlights who they all were and how they appeared.
