Ernst Röhm?

Post by MVSNConsolegenerale » 04 Aug 2002 18:08

Ernst Röhm? Why is he interesting?

Obergruppenfuhrer Heinrich Muller, would be my choice. There is hardly anything written about him and he was the head of the GESTAPO for the entire period of the war...

I would most like to read a biography about SS Gruppenfuhrer Artur Nebe, probably the only high ranking SS officer and Einsatzgruppen commander who played a dangerous two-ffaced game by trying to save the lives of many Jews. I believe one was written about him many years ago, entitled "Who is Nebe?", but a translation has yet been published.

Every bio I have read on Heydrich has been excellent - more would be great.

Many listed have been done, looking for those not as yet covered. After a few, further bios become repeat material (or opinions). Röhm headed SA and other pre-1933 groups, had more power early than Hitler. Among the most important pre-power personalities.

Friedrich Jeckeln. It would be interesting to see if he is a "evil" as most books I have read portray him. I have just finished "Master of Death" by Richard Rhodes, and Jeckeln seemed to relish the work that he had to perform.

Since we are all interested in WW 2-history, I think every biography would be welcomed with open arms.

RE: Rohm

Post by MVSNConsolegenerale » 07 Aug 2002 13:38

I know who Ernst Rohm was,

Again, why would I want to read a biography on him?

How much power a person has is secondary to his personality. President Clinton had a lot of power, but I would never want to read a biography on him just for that sake.

From the little I've read on Rohm through biographies on Hitler, the SS, etc. He doesn't seem like a particularily bright fellow. Even though he was an officer in the army, he also wasn't that smart militarily.

Each to his own I guess,

W.H.D.

Black did detailed bios of Kaltenbrunner and Ribbentrop, the latter also covered by Bloch. Martin Bormann , "The Secretary" by Jachen von Lang. Have to search for the rest when unpacked, there are several on Inquart also.

I would say Fritz Witt, Max Wunsche, Erich Olboeter, Hans Siegel, Werner Ostendorff, Wilhelm Mohnke and Hubert Meyer.
