Military Snapshot - Himmler and the SS leadership

The SS leadership, decked out in their black uniforms and Totenkopf caps. Heinrich Himmler is in the center of the front row, with glasses and mustache. The tall man to his right is Kurt Daluege, chief of the Ordnungspolizei (regular German police force). At the far right of the front row is SS Gruppenfuhrer Josef "Sepp" Dietrich, who headed the Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler, the Fuhrer's bodyguard detail.
