I don't know about Weber, but all the rest of these fellows were distinctly left-wing social radicals! Röhm and Strasser were purged for their leftist views in the Blood Purge, Rossbach was a close associate of Röhm's during the Freikorps days, and Ehrhardt was the man who brokered the political marriage between renegade SA leader, Walter Stennis, and Gregor's brother Otto Strasser that formed the ultra-left/nationalist Black Front.

For me it would be:

Erich Von Dem Back-Zelewski. He is a very controversial figure.

Biographies, not necessarily full length, even articles would do, on Max Wuensche (didn't know how much of a fighter he was until I read Panzermeyer's Grenadiers) and Max Hansen. Thanks. Also, Werner Poetschke seemed quite an able officer and an interesting subject for a biography.

As I wrote elsewhere on this forum before, I am seriously working on a biography of Paul Hausser. Material is difficult to find, but progress is made. Just do not expect it to be ready tomorrow morning.

I do disagree with Mark Yerger's earlier remark here that there is just not enough material on Hausser available. He is right that it is difficult to find and the absence of a diary and family cooperation renders the project difficult, but impossible, no....
Anyway, we'll see how far I can come!

Any help is always welcome. It will be greatly appreciated.

Since there are about five books on Goebbels, I guess he's off my list.

I'd like to read of Hjamlar Schacht or Alfred Rosenberg. I know the former published an autobiography, but it is virtually impossible to find.

Two more are:

Anka Stalherm: Goebbels' first major love. I'm almost as fascinated by her as I am by him! I have David Irving to thank for it, who goes into great detail about her in his biography of Goebbels.

Hans-Georg Kütemeyer is another I'd be interested in. He was the Nazi's most famous martyr--before Wessel got shot, that is.

Wanted biographies

Post by Preuße » 11 Jun 2003 15:35

To Mark Yerger: It already exists a biography of Paul Hausser, but I think there is only one German version available.

Biographies of the following people could be interesting:

Claus Graf Schenk von Stauffenberg
Henning von Tresckow
Hans Hube
Franz Halder
Walther von Brauchitsch
Werner Freiherr von Fritsch
Eduard Dietl
Ernst Udet
Theodor Eicke

The Canadian scholar Peter Hoffman has an excellent biography of Stauffenberg: Stauffenberg : A Family History, 1905-1944
and another is The Very Rich Hours of Count Von Stauffenberg -- by Paul West--these should be available in German by now...

There are already two biographies on Dietl (one by Roland Kaltenegger), three about Halder (Schall-Riacour e.g.) and I believe there is one about Tresckow also (probably by Bücheler, cannot remember exactly).

There are three biographies on Hausser:
- one by mark Yerger (small and hard to find)
- two by former SS-member Karlheinz Mathias, of which one is a larger version of the other. Both are to be treated with care as they provide a non-criticist approach to the subject from a right-wing angle. Apart from the fact that both books are more a tale of battles than the tale of a man...

biographys

Post by waffen » 12 Oct 2003 13:53

many for me but manstien would be interesting he seems to have had a similar relationship with hitler enjoyed by zhukov with stalin, both had the respect of their leaders during tense warfare, winning and losing battles, and if they did not get there way, still voiced there opinion,even changed a few orders with success,but never wavered from the full effort and support of 'winning the war"for their country. 8)
