Hitler's Storm Troopers book. Von Oven's experience was of the SA in Berlin, perhaps the most extreme of the SA branches

Hitler's Storm Troopers book. In the Nazi rise to power a key role was played by the Nazi storm. Von Oven's experience was of the SA in Berlin, perhaps the most extreme of the SA branches.

Von Oven remained unrepentant to the end: indeed, not long before his death he described his experience of Nazi rule as 'paradise'.

Firstly, I'd like to say I have actually read this book.
It's in the "interesting little gems" section of my WW2 history shelf and I gave it four rather than five stars because I think it's a bit overpriced for 168 pages of text.
That said, Wilfried v Oven's memoirs give some fascinating insights into not just the SA, but the Germany of that time, at street level so as to speak. This study made a refreshing change from reading about grand political and/or military strategy, interesting though they also are.

Eleanor Hancock's Introduction is brief and mainly useful for the brief biographical/career data she gives about the author. He supplies more detail, born 1912 in Bolivia to a father who returned to fight and who fell at Flanders, mother who kept the children together despite extreme poverty/ the Allied food blockade on Germany. The 1919 Communist uprising, Weimar Republic, rise of National-Socialism and the SA are interwoven with many references to the personalities involved, including spies and others of varied, even changeable, political affiliation.
W. von Oven was a member of the SA for just one year. His motive for leaving was the revolt by Walther Stennes, which was associated with the conditions for all serving in the SA. This and the personality of Ernst Roehm and what actually happened and why on/before Bad Wiessee on 30 June 1934 were the main areas of interest for me. There is lots more, mainly in short references (for example I found the role of von Papen something to follow up).
He also served as adjutant to Dr J. Goebbels, while not being a member of the NSDAP; interesting little passage relating what JG's reaction is when told this ...
All in all an interesting account for any student of the first half of the bloody 20th century in Europe.

The book was pretty interesting but not really much new info and the author straetched the truth and white washed anything that would make the NAZIs look bad but then again he never claimed to be anything other than a non repentent NAZI.........

Listen, I think this book is interesting. It is the message that is damn hard to swallow, and thus the 2 star rating. von Oven is an unrepentent NAZI who speaks of the Third Reich as a paradise. He even talks about how the Jews had it coming and they were their ruin. I was appalled. In the 21st Century, we have this stuff being published. Fortunately, von Oven died in Argentina sometime in 2008.

The author was a employee of the Minister of Propaganda Goebbels, and he actually believes what the minister shoved out about the regime's views. He even states that the Rohm conspiracy to take over the country in 1934 was true, when most historians would state that Rohm was not planning a revolt but was competing for political power. The stories go on and on from there. Some of it is true and a lot isn't.

For those interested in reading about a NAZI's view, this is an OK read. However, beware that some of his perspective is not true. Otherwise, please be careful about using this book.
