I would be interested in reading about Kammenhuber (spelling) who organized the reich's airdefences for a while and threatened the bombing campaign with its effectiveness before it broke down or was removed, im not sure.

I don't really remember the author, but I've seen something on Ohlendorf in Russian (and the book was thanslated from English). But it was too long ago, three or maybe four years before I've joined the forum...
And I'm doing my own researches on "kleine Rudi" Brandt.))) Perhaps, there are noone else to be interested in this man.

Hello,

For me a book on SS-Gruppenfuhrer Hans Rattenhuber would be excellent. So little has been written on members of the RSD and what better place to start than their commander. It's always about Gunsche, Kempka or Linge which is just fine but I feel that the RSD is overlooked as being the real bodyguards of Hitler.

Best,

James

Paul Blobel (covering his failed architectural career and his alcoholism).
Albert Foerster (a book in English, there's already one in German)
Wolfram Sievers
Horia Sima (only mentioned in passing within works on the Iron Guard)
Josef Kramer
Theodor Eicke (covering his exile in Italy, his disputes with Buerckel, and his terrorist activity)
Otto Ohlendorff (covering his time in Italy, studying the corporate economy of Fascism)
** Early Nazis such as Anton Drexler, Karl Harrer, Gottfried Feder, Christian Weber, and the marginal Arthur Dinter (covering his Christianity and his novels about "blut und rasse".)

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.

Hi old post I know but can I confirm if Peter Black did complete a biography of Ribbentrop, or was this the Bloch book and Black just had his Kaltenbrunner book published?

Thanks in advance.

Not to veer off subject too much, after a couple of year's searching I found the book on Ernst Kaltenbrunner by Black on Amazon. Someone had it for $60 so I bought it in Feb. The book doesn't bore.

I couldnt get into the Kaltenbrunner book last time I tried I need to give it another go.

I am looking at getting the John Weitz book on Ribbentrop is this any good? Also his bio of Hjalmar Schacht.

Thanks

Hi Guys,

I would like to see this book (Der starke Mann im Heimatkriegsgebiet - Generaloberst Friedrich Fromm: Eine Biographie
by Bernhard R. Kroener) in English: https://www.amazon.de/s?k=Friedrich+fro ... _sb_noss_2

Fromm was head of the Ersatzheer and built the German Army that conquered most of Europe out of the 100,000 man Reichswehr in only six years. He was also an enigmatic non-player in the Bomb Plot. He is arguably more important than any individual Field Marshall, because all of them were using the men and tools he provided.

Albert Speer said of him: "Fromm knew how to present a problem clearly: he had presence and had diplomatic tact. Sitting there, his sword pressed between his knees, hand on hilt, he looked charged with energy; and to this day I believe that his great abilities might have prevented many a blunder at the Fuhrer’s headquarters."

Cheers,

Sid.
