Abstract This trial brief presents documentary evidence that the Nazi conspirators used ostensibly civilian organizations as military training grounds. The brief concentrates on the NSKK, NSFK, RAD, and OT, citing official Nazi memoranda and publications to make its case, and offers similar, albeit perfunctory, allegations concerning the SS, SA, and HJ. This document is a typewritten copy on generally stable paper.
