OTTO SKORZENY (1908 - 1975) Nazi officer and Hitler's chief and favorite commando, he made a daring mountain-top rescue of Mussolini, placed English-speaking soldiers in American uniforms to mislead American forces in the Bulge, and after the war headed the organization that helped hundreds of ex-SS officers flee Germany. Good content T.L.S. on his personal letterhead, 1p. 4to., Madrid, July 29, 1974 to an American admirer, in German. Skorzeny supports commando tactics in modern warfare, writing in part: " my view, in a modern and possible new world war, commando and special forces will play a major role, and with comparatively small groups of very determined me, one can accomplish very much, often more than entire regiments or divisions...we want to hope that it does not come to that..." Fine.
