The SA (Storm-Abteilung or Stormtroopers) were Hitler's own private army that he set up in 1921. They were mostly young men who dressed in brown uniforms and were someti…mes known as the Brownshirts. Supposedly the SA was formed to protect speakers at Nazi meetings from intimidation by left wing opponents. In practise however, the SA often started the violence themselves by breaking up the meetings of the Social Democratic Party which often ended in drunken brawls. The SS had been private body guards for Hitler and other Nazi leaders. SS stands for Schutz-Staffel or 'protection squad'. It had only 500 men but Heinrich Himmler was responsible for building it into an elite force of 50 0000 men. In 1934 they helped Hitler crush the SA and the role of the SS also changed. They become the main means of terrorising or intimidating Germans into obedience. The SS had almost unlimited power to arrest people without trial, search houses or confiscate property. They also ran the concentration camps. (MORE)

SS in… the context of the Holocaust and World War 2 stands for Schutzstaffel which, translated literally, means Protective Squad . (Orginally, it provided bodyguards for leading Nazis). As the literal translation conveys just about nothing to people who don't already know what it was, it is common to refer to it in English simply as the SS . It was the SS that was in charge of the Holocaust. The Nazis regarded the SS as an elite unit, the Party's "praetorian guard", with all SS personnel selected (in principle, anyway) on the principles of racial purity and unconditional loyalty to FÃ¼hrer and the Nazi Party. The SS military branch, the Waffen-SS, evolved into a second German army in addition to the regular German army, the Wehrmacht. (MORE)
Answer The SS(Shutzstaffel) or Praetorian Guard was Hitler's personal bodyguard unit. Constructed after the takeover of Germany, the SS was led by SS-Reichsfuhre…r Heinrich Himmler who inducted ceremonial rites and codes into the military division. On the Night of the Long Knives, the SS was used to murder Chief of Staff of the SA Ernst Rohm and other high SA officials. Afterwards, the SS was the primary fighting force and military power of the Nazi regime. The men incorporated into the SS were the "elite". The SS was based on absolute loyalty to the Fuhrer. There were two main branches of the SS. The Waffen-SS, the fighting unit, and the Allgemeine-SS, more or less the reservists. There were also the subdivisions of the SS such as the Einsatzgruppen, the death squads who killed the occupants of the invaded countries, and the SS-Totenkopfverb�nde, the Death's Head, which were responsible for the numerous mass genocide of Jews and other prisoners in the concentration camps. SS training was ruthless. The physical and mental stress on the trainee increased their mindset and made them killing machines with no remorse or mercy for their enemies. SS units were trained to have no guilt. They placed such a thing on a scale transfering the responsibility of their actions to superior officers until the thought dilipidated into nothing. There were also SS Panzer corps. These tank divisions outclassed all the others, including the Vhermacht. The members of the tank crews were trained with the same tenacity and they outgunned and outmanuevered most enemies. Overall, the SS was the first elite fighting force. They paved the way for groups like the Army Rangers. With fierce tenacity, determination, unrelenting prowess and skill, the SS was the most prominent and feared unit in World War 2. (MORE)
