Untersturmführer Hienz Klien and Brigadeführer, Sigfried Von Stazi observe a Finnish Army training exercise...
A 1936 gameplay/story AAR using patch 1.2
Historical where possible.
The two protraganists will be attached to Waffen SS units throughout the war. While this is a gameplay/story AAR, the story element will concentrate on the roles of these to officers, their highs and lows.
Stazi and Klien do Poland better know as...
There and back again, a Waffen SS General’s tale
Extracts from an upcoming AAR
Brigadeführer, Sigfried Von Stazi hurriedly walked down the hall in the Prinzalbrechtstrasse building (SS headquarters, Berlin). When he reached his office he gave a silent nod to Untersturmführer Klein.
Untersturmführer Hienz Klien smiled knowingly but knew that for at the least the next ten minutes the Brigadeführer would not want to be disturbed.
Stazi sat down at his desk and smiled. A battlefield commission was now his. He had convinced Reichsführer SS Himmler that he could better serve the SS and in so doing greater Germany if he was assigned to one of the new Waffen SS units being formed in secret. He had frankly blindsided the Reichsführer SS with his blunt request. Hitler himself had smiled knowing the young officer had got the better of his chief of the State Security.
Brigadeführer Von Stazi had been tired of being nothing but a glorified bean counter. Of sitting on the sidelines and watching as Hitler’s war machine slowly began to roar into life. Ever since 36 he had realized that you could only go so far as a glory boy bound only to ceremonial duties and guarding the Fuehrer.
The heady days at the Fuehrer’s monthly planning sessions were gone for good, no longer would he listen to Donitz and Raeder spar with each other over command of the fleet.
Or to hear Herr Goering, the buffoon, espouse the virtues of the Luftwaffe...
