Example text

And that people like Himmler and Heydrich get their deserts, or he will continue to cover for the misdeeds of these people – in which case I fear for the future. Since the Führer has sanctioned and condoned the way the Gestapo acted in my case, I must regretfully abandon my plan to challenge Himmler to a duel. Besides, after so much time has elapsed it would probably look somewhat affected. What I cannot and never will understand is the Führer’s attitude toward me. Perhaps he personally begrudges me that I dented his aura of infallibility by being acquitted.

Hitler asked him who ought to succeed Blomberg, and Keitel too offered Göring’s name. “No, that is out of the question,” replied Hitler. “I don’t think Göring has the ability. ” He also asked Keitel to find him a new adjutant. Colonel Hossbach’s loyalty evidently lay with his C-in-C, rather than with his Führer. Keitel picked Major Rudolf Schmundt. Forty-two, big-eared and capable, the new Wehrmacht adjutant was to wield a psychological influence over Hitler that has passed largely unobserved by military historians.

Heydrich soon excelled in Himmler’s security service, the Sicherheitsdienst (SD). In April , Göring gave him control over Prussia’s Gestapo, the secret state police. A tall, blond officer with classic Aryan features, Heydrich – renowned in later years for his cold-bloodedness – must have had some humour in his dusky soul, because in  he dared write to the Reichsführer SS that a witch had been identified amongst Himmler’s ancestors, burnt at the stake in : or perhaps it was meant seriously after all.
