Dr. Robert Ley, Dr. Porsche, Adolf Hitler
Few people know it but World War I flying veteran and close friend of Adolf Hitler, Dr. Robert Ley was the genius behind most of the organization of the Nazi Party.   As Reichs Organization Leader from 1931 onward, he was responsible for the publication of the Organisationsbuch der NSDAP, which outlined how every Nazi paramilitary unit from the SS to the Hitler Youth was organized, what uniforms they wore and what their mission was. As Reichsleiter of the DAF he built the Ordensburg Castles at Vogelsang, Crössensee and Sonthofen. He built the towns and factories that produced everything from Volkswagens to tanks and airplanes to ships and plywood. He oversaw every laborer that worked on the Reichsautobahn.

The part played by Dr. Ley in organizing the rag-tag political party Hitler dreamed up, is without parallel and is poorly understood today.
The NSDAP could not have existed without Dr. Ley, and no one should attempt to discuss, write, or lecture on the subject of Nazi Germany without first gaining a good grounding with regard to Dr. Ley. It is absolutely fundamental to any understanding of the Nazi Party, or any aspect of the history of the country of Germany from 1920 to the present day.  An understanding of Ley's renown outside of Germany may be gotten from the fact that at the World Congress for Leisure Time and Recreation in Hamburg, Germany in 1936 Dr. Robert Ley was elected President. This was not a German organization but an international organization of 51 independent countries.

Ley used his position in the World Congress for Leisure Time and Recreation to create an Internationale Zentralbüro Freude und Arbeit (International Headquarters of Joy and Work) which in turn published a huge 10-1/2 x 14-1/2 inch, beautiful multi-lingual magazine called Freude und Arbeit (Joy and Work - Gioia e Lavoro - Alegria y Trabajo - Joie et Travail - Vreuge en Arbeid - Bucurie si Munca - Radost a Prace).
