Just a quick note that I'm nearly done with the manuscript for Gauleiter: The Regional Leaders of the Nazi Party and Their Deputies (by myself and Andreas Schulz). There's just too much material to confine to just one volume, so the first volume will include all German Gauleiter and the second all pre-Anschluss Austrian Gauleiter as well as all the deputy Gauleiter. Page count... the first book will have to be a minimum of 700 pages. I have more photos than I know what to do with, so I anticipate this thing will be insanely illustrated with photos and documents. Publisher, as always- Roger Bender.

I'll continue to make periodic updates here.

Thanks to all for your continued patience and support. After this, by the way, I'll redouble my efforts on Volume II of Leaders of the SS & German Police.

The following individuals will be covered in the Gauleiter set:

Not really what you'd call "definitive", is it, Mike? :D :D

I've been honoured enough to see a pre-publication version of Mike's manuscript. It is one of the singular most impressive pieces of research I've ever come across. There's no doubt in my mind that it will become the standard reference work for anyone studying the Gauleitern. :[]

Hi folks,

Posted a thread in the 'Books' forum asking if anyone could verify Mikes email address, but then realised two things. 1) This forum, and thread, is probably a more appropriate place, and 2) Mike is probably helluva busy, and might take a bit of time to answer.

Anyway, mods, feel free to delete my other thread in books, and I guess I'll just learn the lesson of the little grasshopper.

Jock - I have passed on your request to Mike Miller, but why not just post your question here for him? Other people might be interested too. That's what this forum is for.

Hi, Jock, and thanks for your interest in contacting me. I've been somewhat MIA for most of the past year. A woman's to blame, but in a good way. Feel free to write me any time at [email protected].

Very brief update- sent a big box containing my "Gauleiter" manuscript to Roger Bender today. It's been sitting unmailed next to the front door for three weeks. I've really become a slug, but am starting to awaken from this bizarre interlude of--- sluggishness. I'm back, sort of, at least for a while.

And thanks to John for relaying your message to me.

John, thank you for passing on my message, it is much appreciated.

Mike, I've emailed you, thanks. There are worse things to be distracted by than women, historical research perhaps being one of them!

Hi Mike,

As the manuscript's now on its way to the publisher, this will be zu spät but...

This book is extremely useful for day-to-day workings of a Gauleiter at war, in this case Friedrich Hildebrandt: ... 477&sr=8-1

It's a collection of extant conferences covering 1939-45 (although most surviving records come from 1942/43). Very detailed, tons of footnotes. I'll be using bits of it in my next book. The down size is that it's enormous (1100 pages) and weighs a ton. :[]

At long last, tomorrow I'll be mailing the manuscript for Leaders of the SS & German Police, Volume II (Reichsführer-SS - SS-Gruppenführer, Hans Haltermann to Wilhelm Kube), by myself and Andreas Schulz, to Roger Bender. I have 393 pages of text (8 1/2" x 11", so it'll be quite a few more when squeezed into Bender's smaller format and with the addition of photos). It will include biographies of the following:

The attachment is just my amateurish concept for the cover. It'll probably be much different, as Roger insists on designing the cover himself.

It'll be a while before the book is actually released, but at least I'm a little bit closer.

No more than two weeks later, I'll be sending off the manuscript for Volume II of Gauleiter: The Regional Leaders of the Nazi Party and Their Deputies (Volume I will be released Winter 2011/2012), also in coauthorship with Andreas Schulz. Just in the photo captioning phase now.

Best wishes and thanks to all the many people here who have assisted in so many ways with these projects,

Another update:
Gauleiter - Volume 1
The Regional Leaders of the Nazi Party
and their Deputies, 1925-1945

by Michael D. Miller and Andreas Schulz

They were among the most powerful men in Germany from 1933 to 1945 and answered to only one man...Adolf Hitler. Remarkably, even in Germany, no comprehensive biographical study of the NSDAP’s regional leaders, the Gauleiter, has ever been published. Drawing on a wealth of documents, many from original personnel files in the Bundesarchiv in Berlin, the authors present highly detailed and fascinating biographies of these men who governed Germany on Hitler’s behalf. The text is comp[l]emented by numerous photos, many unpublished, plus examples of autographs. In addition to the biographies, a lengthy section provides information on all of the 43 Gaue (regions) of Nazi Germany. Military history author Richard Hargreaves writes of the manuscript...”the most comprehensive overview I’ve seen in any language.”

- 560 pages
-289 photos
-Deluxe Binding

Gauleiter... Volume I was finally released in May, and I am hopeful Gauleiter... Volume II as well as Leaders of the SS & German Police, Volume II will follow in 2013.

For reviews of the first installment in the 3-volume Gauleiter series, please see ... =gauleiter .

Helion & Co. will be releasing the 2-volume Knight's Cross Holders of the SS & German Police, 1940-1945 (the same basic text as the CD-Rom, with the addition of many, many photos and autographs) in 2014.

Thanks to all for your interest in my work.

I see that Vol 1 of Miller's SS Ritterkreuzträger proposed "series" has been released by his publisher. It appears to be a BLIVET to me and I do not recommend it. Several weeks ago Mark Yerger and I posted comments on AHF asking Miller why he was writing a book about the SS Ritterkreuzträger which has already been pretty well covered by other authors together with his apparent lack of original research. Miller responded with some nasty personal attacks against us.

Miller's Knight's Cross book is highly recommended, as it covers many aspects that have either not been covered yet, or are extremely dated. There has been more than enough original research. A number of authors and historians have helped review the work. It basically lays out all the relevant details of the soldiers career, correcting many numerous mistakes from the past, as well as adding a lot of new information, primarily on awards. It also has a lot of rare and some unreleased photos. Some people have been saying that this subject has been well covered before, however this is completely inaccurate. Krätschmer's book is originally from 1955, and does not cover much as far as awards are concerned. Also it is in German only, while most people who are interested in this topic speak English. Schneider's book is also dated and has even less information than Krätschmer's. Karl's new books are written in Krätschmer's style, and also lack a lot of information concerning awards, and is only in German. Other than those three books there is NO other work that completely focuses only on RK winners of the SS, and is as detailed and accurate. I highly recommend it!
