  Mann (military rank) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mann, was a paramilitary rank used by several Nazi Party paramilitary organizations between 1925 and 1945.
The rank is most often associated with the S.S., and also as a rank of the SA where Mann was the lowest enlisted rank and was the equivalent of a Private.
An even lower rank, known as Anwärter, was established in the mid-1930s as a recruit or candidate position, held by an individual seeking an appointment as a Mann in a Nazi Party paramilitary organization.

Uninterested in military medicine, the civilian physicians and surgeons of the day were ignorant of the diseases incident to armies, unfamiliar with the police and hygiene of camps, and inexperienced in the operation of military hospitals.
Its special significance for military preventive medicine was determinative, because it established a permanent central military medical organization within which a preventive medicine service could be developed, over the years, with conceptual continuity that persisted through periods of error, administrative failure, financial deprivation, changes in knowledge, and through wars.
The military achievement was a brilliant contrast to the dismal sanitary deficiencies.

Mann, author of 'Rise of the Vulcans: The History of Bush's War Cabinet', predicts in an article in the 'foreign policy' section of the website of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace that the sceptics are likely to prevail.
Mann sees these constraints as dictating a more ''realist'' and multilateral approach, such as that long urged by Powell and former national security adviser Brent Scowcroft, even if the more-aggressive vision of U.S. global military domination remains at the heart of the new team.
But he does allow that the administration may still try to ''wield its military power in a way that doesn't require a lot of troops, such as through air strikes,'' an option that has already been contemplated for nuclear-related targets in Iran and North Korea.
