Josef "Sepp" Dietrich (28 May 1892 – 21 April 1966) was a general in the Waffen-SS – the armed paramilitary branch of the Nazi Party's Schutzstaffel (SS) – who commanded units up to army level during World War II. Prior to 1929, he was Adolf Hitler's chauffeur and bodyguard but received rapid promotion after his participation in the political ex-judicial executions of political opponents during the 1934 purge known as the Night of the Long Knives. He later commanded 6th Panzer Army during the Battle of the Bulge. After the war, he was imprisoned by the United States for war crimes and later by Germany for his involvement in the 1934 purge.
