SS-Obergruppenführer Doctor Hans Kammler
SS-Obergruppenführer Doctor Hans Kammler was one of the most influential leaders of Nazi Germany. Imposing, ingenious, and rampantly power-hungry, he was one of the architects behind the Nazi concentration camps, director of the top-secret V-2 rocket initiative, and the master of Germany’s late-war Emergency Fighter Programs. The shrewd and calculating SS commander consolidated massive power as the Nazi regime crumbled into pieces around him. And even Hitler’s chief architect, Albert Speer, called him: (QUOTE) “Himmler’s most brutal and most ruthless henchmen.” But just as his power and ambition reached their zenith in the latter years of the war, the machiavellian SS commander mysteriously disappeared from the face of the Earth. Conflicting reports as to his whereabouts emerged across the lands. Some claimed he had fallen in battle, while others affirmed he had taken a cyanide pill along with his wife. She later denied it, raising concerns of a possible escape or secret negotiation with the Allies.
