The Reinhard Heydrich Biography. Volume 1. Road To War

 

A first-class work of historical investigation
Roger Bender, Bender Publishing, USA
The Reinhard Heydrich Biography, Volumes 1 & 2

 

This objective and informed, two-volume study, represents political, personal, military and biographical history at its finest.

The son of an eminent musician and devout Catholic, as a child Reinhard Heydrich was shy and retiring, as an adult, a brilliant strategist, ingenious diplomat and ambitious sportsman. Idealistic in politics, faithful in love, single-minded and sensitive, Heydrich is complex and compelling: a 20th century Machiavellian and ‘Renaissance man.’   

From a relatively young age, Heydrich excelled in single-sporting disciplines, for example shooting, flying and fencing. He later held a seat at the International Olympic Commitee (1936 Olympic Games), and promoted the benefits of fencing as a discipline in SS culture. Destined to become Hitler's heir apparent, Heydrich was afforded a State funeral in the new Reich Chancellory.

Road To War, Volume 1, chapter Snap-Shots: 

The Formative Years

' ...financially the Heydrich family never totally recovered. This made a strong impact on the young Reinhard Heydrich; for the first time he became involved in politics.'

 Heydrich’s Naval Career

'Heydrich joined Crew 22. His first training period was spent in Kiel where fellow crew members were quick to acknowledge his falsetto voice and nick-named him 'billy-goat.'Lieutenant Commander Wilhelm Canaris made a profound impression on Heydrich.'

 A New Direction

'Himmler outlined his requirement...a new Intelligence Service for the SS, and gave Heydrich just twenty minutes to draft a plan.' 

The Infant Security Service

'Heydrich was responsible for collating news articles. He borrowed a typewriter from Hilderbrandt's office and  established a filing system using  a cigar box and index cards to file his newspaper cuttings. This then was the birth of the Sicherheitsdienst, or SD...

 By December 1931 Heydrich was rewarded with a promotion...Himmler recognised the importance of Heydrich's Intelligence Service, relocated the office and allowed Heydrich three assistants. This was the first, independent office for the SD. Surprisingly it still lacked a typewriter.'

 The Foundation of The SS State

1935 saw the birth of the SS newspaper ‘Das Schwarze Korps.’ The first issue instantly projected the SS into the public eye. Himmler appointed Gunter d’Alquen as the newspapers' editor.  Reinhard Heydrich, the driving force behind the newspaper contributed articles  – often anonymously.'  

Road To War

Summer 1933. Austrian chancellor Engelbert Dolfuss banned the Austrian National Socialist Party, members flee into Bavaria...Fridolin Glass forces Dolfuss from Office... Otto Palenta fatally shot. Chamberlain signs the Munich Agreement. The on-set of Case White and the invasion of Poland.
