Abstract This interrogation report provides succinct information on a series of topics (see Keywords). The witness's statements chiefly address the posture of the German Army under the terms of the Versailles Treaty, the financing of the rearmament process, the regular Army's rejection of the SA as a reservoir of soldiers, and several measures enacted by way of military preparation that violated the Versailles Treaty. This document is a typewritten copy on slightly browning, somewhat fragile paper.
