What is included with this book?


Ernst Rouml;hm was one of the key architects behind the rise of the Nazi Party. From 1919 until 1923, following the defeat of Germany in the First World War, Rouml;hm served in the Freikorps and then NSDAP the Nazi Party. He served as the party's patron, promoter and watchdog, and helped found the SA, the thuggish workforce behind Nazi political activity leading up to 1933. It has been stated that the rise to power of both Hitler and the Nazi Party would not have happened without Rouml;hm's organisational skill, authority and influence. He took part in the Beer hall putsch in 1923, but was sufficiently disillusioned by 1925 with the prospects for Nazism that he stood for the Reichtag instead. Rouml;hm wrote and published his memoirs in 1928 entitled A Traitor's Story the year he both resumed working for the Nazis and left to serve in the Bolivian army for two years. Later editions included his time in Bolivia and the notorious Rouml;hm-Heimsoth letters. Rouml;hm proved to be an eloquent writer and he was candid about his experiences and his relationship with the Fuuml;hrer. He wrote, 'Hitler and were linked by ties of sincere friendship.' Little did Rouml;hm know where that 'friendship' would end.
