Footnote: Wilhelm Brückner was born on 11 December 1884 in Baden-Baden. He served with a Bavarian infantry regiment through the First World War and was the recipient of numerous decorations, including the Iron Cross II Class and the Bavarian War Merit Cross with Swords. After the war, he enlisted in the Freikorps and participated in the defeated of the Bavarian Soviet Republic. He joined the NSDAP and Sturmabteilung (SA) in 1922, becoming the leader of the Munich SA by 1 February 1923. He participated in the failed Beer Hall Putsch on 9 November 1923, and with put on trial with the other participants, receiving a prison sentence of 15 months on 1 April 1924. As time served was factored into the sentences, he was immediately released on probation. He once again assumed leadership of the Münich SA and was employed in a number of menial jobs throughout the remainder of the 1920s. After being severely injured in an automobile accident while riding in a motorcade with A. Hitler, he was appointed the latter’s chief adjutant on 20 February 1934, holding this position until 18 October 1940. In this capacity he exercised a supervisor role for all of the Führer’s personal staff. His role was gradually usurped by other figures such as Martin Bormann, and after being dismissed he enlisted in the Heer and saw combat on both the Eastern and Western Fronts. By the end of the war, he had been promoted to Oberst (Colonel). He was captured by US forces and held as a prisoner of war until 1948. After his release from captivity he managed a petrol station in Bavaria before dying in Herbsdorf on 20 August 1954.
