Hello, everyone! As some of you know, I'm currently writing a large-scale project in the form of an historical novel which starts in 1934 and sees the whole development of the nazi régime and many of the great battles of WWII. After a lot of investigation, I still have doubts that some dramatic stuff are unrealistic or that some very specific dates are not compatible with reality. I think you guys can help me with it. I know you will laugh because some of the dramatic stuff being mixed with reality. I know you don't like that very much, but it's the price you'll pay for having Friedrich here! ____________________________________ First, when did the SS Junkerschule - officer candidate school - was created and started operating? Second, when did the SS Wachsverbände changed its name to Totenkopfverbände and what did Theodor Eicke have to do with this? By this time, did some of its men made parades and ceremonial stuff in the party rallies and meetings as did the LAH and other SS units? Is it possible that an ex French Foreign Legion officer, who had saved the life of the just appointed German chancellor, Adolf Hitler, would have been accepted in the Stosstruppe Berlin - later LSSAH? I know that Hitler's afinity with this man, highly decorated and born in Braunau am Inn too would have been great. Not to mention that the man saved Hitler's life in some fiction-assassination-attempt, so he could very easily order: "I want him taking care of my back". But I can see some objections on Himmler's part because this man - though of complete aryan looks and with aristocratic surname - has a very dubtious past and a Siryan-Lebanese grandfather. But there's no way to track this man's 'criminal' record because those are French police records. The main problem is Himmler accepting him, because I know Sepp Dietrich wouldn't have wanted him, since he didn't have the height and other standards recquired in the future LSSAH. I don't think I was clear enough, but if you want I can make a far more detailed description on my main character so you can advice me. := Thank you very much!
