  •  Hitler Survived WW2? Hoocoodanode! (3+ / 0-)

    If Hitler worked for any German military services post-WW1, it would have been the Reichswehr.  For Hitler to have worked for the Bundeswehr, he would have had to survive WW2.  Of course, there was a lot of confusion in Berlin in May 1945.

      Reichswehr Abseiling I b/p under Captain Karl Mayr

        Abteilung 'branch, division, department'.  Specifically, Abteilung I b/P of Reichswehrgruppenkommando 4.  According to an old issue of Der Spiegel, the unit was variously called the Nachrichtenabteilung, Presse- und Propagandaabteilung, and Aufklärungsabteilung.  The first is normally translated signals unit in a military context, but here intelligence division is probably better.  The second is pretty self-explanatory, and the third is reconnaissance division.  Apparently one function of the unit was to keep an eye on extreme political groups.
