Hitler's Personal Staff

Post by Ian Sayer » 09 Oct 2011 10:28

In tandem with my previous thread regarding Hitler's adjutants I thought it would also be interesting to try and compile a list of Hitler's Personal Staff together with their correct designations and periods of service. I realise that this is more complicated than it might seem at face value (for example interpretation of who qualifies as a member of the personal staff) but nevertheless I thought it would be worth a try so here is a basic listing. All corrections, additions etc will, of course, be gratefully appreciated.
Many thanks
Ian

Remember Ulrich Graf was one of the first bodyguards and Emil Maurice was the driver circa 1930-31.
