The main text and appendices complement each other, and for the serious historian this book gives a new insight into a little researched group of units, those bearing the title Feldherrnhalle. As the name suggests and the book amply explains, these groups had more than just passing links with the Sturmabteilung, for whom the Feldherrnhalle Arch in Munich was synonymous with the National Socialists struggle for power. The SA leaders the Feldherrnhalle units were perhaps viewed as an extension of their own 'SA Standarte Feldherrnhalle' (The armed 'Guards' unit of the SA) and as near to their ideal of a political soldier as they were ever likely to achieve following the rise to power of their rivals, the SS... Alfonso Escuadra Sanchez has produced and unquestionably erudite work on units whose combat achievements evidently deserve more widespread dissemination. The word 'Elite' is perhaps overused in modern military writing, but it undoubtedly sums up the Feldherrnhalle, whose military prowess was often beyond comparison. For the English language market this volume will soon prove itself to be the primary source for those seeking information on the Feldherrnhalle units.
