Abstract This document is the original German text of Dr. von Schlabrendorff's memo to General Donovan concerning the relationship of the German General Staff to Hitler (see preceding document, also sectioned as 10.09). The text is a single-spaced typewritten original on good paper that is slightly browning. The last page bears von Schlabrendorff's signature, which appears as usual to be more drawn than written.
