Until his murder by the SS in the 1934 'Night of the Long Knives', Ernst Rohm was one of the leading figures in the Nazi Party. This memoir, first published in 1928 but only now translated into English, charts the party's emergence from the chaos that followed Germany's defeat in the First World War, the rise of Adolf Hitler, and the Munich putsch. 'Germany,' he concludes, 'was never suited to "diplomacy" or "politics"; its greatness in history was always won by the sword.'
