Abstract:

"Once described as 'the man who invented Hitler', Ernst Röhm was one of the key figures of the fledgling Nazi Party. Commander of the notorious 'Stormtroopers', the fanatical brown-shirted mobsters who assisted Hitler's rise to power in the 1930s, and once a close ally of Hitler, Röhm was later brutally killed by the SS during the Night of the Long Knives. In the aftermath of his murder, Röhm's private archive was destroyed; and aside from a few scattered personal papers, all that remained was this autobiography, translated now for the first time in English. These memoirs are a valuable historical source, providing important insights into the ruthless power struggles and emerging ideologies within the early Nazi leadership, and offering a candid - and at times chilling - glimpse into the life and views of this central, though largely ignored, figure"--Publisher's description, p. [4] of dust jacket.
