There is a major mistake in Theweleit´s book, 1st. edition: Heinz Oskar Hauenstein is NOT Friedrich Wilhelm Heinz. Hauenstein´s nick (and combat) name was Heinz, his organisation was called "Organisation Heinz" OH, however, Friedrich Wilhelm Heinz never had anything in common with Hauenstein. If you want to know more about Friedrich Wilhelm Heinz, please visit his website: www.friedrich-wilhelm-heinz.de I have read Theweleit´s book a few times. More and more I came to the conclusion, that these more or less homo erotic MALE FANTASIES were the fantasies of Mr. Theweleit himself.
