The study of Hitler’s Stormtroopers (Sturm Abteilung; SA), as compared to other Nazi organizations, has been rather neglected by historians. In recent years the study of Hitler’s SA has branched out beyond its early political and social historical confines. Cultural historians and historians of gender have also started to explore the history of the SA.

Because of this renewed interest in SA studies in German, as well as English speaking academic circles, the editors are interested in exploring all time periods and aspects of SA history. Intended to bring together recent research the edited volume seeks to provide a platform for historians to introduce SA research to English speaking audiences and to stimulate further research. The language of the publication is English. The editors also invite contributions from young researchers including PhD students and recent PhDs.

Contributions may include, but are not limited to, the following aspects of SA history:


-SA Diversity


- SA and Concentration Camps

-SA Leadership

-Post-1934 SA History
