In 1936, a young German journalist named Konrad Heidan wrote a book called, Hitler: A Biography.
In it, he described the street fighting between the communists and Nazis which characterized much of early 1930s Germany.
But one interesting thing he mentioned about the paramilitary Nazi S.A. known as the Brownshirts or Stormtroopers, was that:
“There were large numbers of Communists and Social Democrats among them; many of the storm troopers were called ‘beefsteaks—brown [outside] and red within. Jest were retailed such as the following: one S.A. man says to another: ‘In our storm troop there are three Nazis, but we shall soon have spewed them out.”
