 Amazon.com: The Night of Long Knives: Books: Max Gallo,Lily Emmet   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Max Gallo, in his NIGHT OF THE LONG KNIVES, details a sequence of events that had been building up for years since the 1920s, finally culminating in an orgy of the slaughter of the top leaders of the SA during the weekend of Saturday, June 30, 1934 to Monday, July 2.
THE NIGHT OF THE LONG KNIVES details what had been only before sketchily known, the day by day elimination of those who truly thought themselves to be in the front line of Hitler's best defense against Jews and godless communists.
Gallo's "The Night of Long Knives" explains how these problems all came together and culminated in the eradication of the hierarchy of the SA, and left Hitler as the uncontested Fuhrer.
