"STOSSTRUPP ADOLF HITLER 1923"!

The 7 x 9-1/2 inch, 220-pages hardcover book was written by Hans Kallen-berg, one of the Nazis of the first hour and member of the "Stosstrupp Adolf Hitler 1923". From the very beginning, Hitler viewed the SA as a potential threat as well as a useful tool. As a means to offset the growing power and potential threat of the SA, Hitler ordered the formation of a special unit to be made up of loyal followers that would protect the NSDAP leadership. This special unit was formed by Julius Schreck and Joseph Berchtold and was named the Stabswache. Although this new formation was a unique and separate cadre, it was still under the ultimate control of the SA. The basic uniform and insignia of the Stabswache were designed especially for the men of the unit, consisting at this time of the very first use of the Totenkopf, or Death's Head, on the caps of the men, as well as a number of other specific elements, unique to the Stabswache. Soon after formation, the Stabswache was renamed as the Stosstrupp Adolf Hitler. On November 9, 1923, the Stosstrupp Adolf Hitler, along with the SA and other NSDAP formations, took part in the Beer Hall Putsch in Munich against the Weimar Republic. The Putsch failed and Hitler was jailed along with many other members, and the NSDAP was banned. The Stosstrupp Adolf Hitler was officially disbanded, as were all the formations of the NSDAP. Hans Kallenbach, author of this book, was jailed together with Hitler. Soon after Hitler was released in 1924, a new unit was formed along the same lines as the original Stabswache and Stosstrupp Adolf Hitler. This new formation was once again named the Stabswache, but it was not formed under control of the SA, but as a completely separate unit. The new Stabswache consisted of ultra devoted followers that could be relied upon under any circumstances to protect the NSDAP leadership and Hitler himself. Shortly after the formation of the new Stabswache, it was renamed as the Schutzstaffel (SS).
