    (Reading a book on Himmler).... What quality did Himmler have that allowed a non-Aryan weakling with health problems to rise to such a high position in Hitler's Reich?

    Heydrich, but right on. His death was actually a boon to Himmler since he was a rival for Hitler's approval.

    Correct!

    The 50cal ammo belts that fit into the wings were 9 yards (18ft) long & the term meant that the pilot had fired his entire ammo load at the target.
