- "Mass slaughter for the greater good? I'm not one of Grindelwald's fanatics"
- —Newt Scamander[src]
An army of wizards and witches followed the Dark Wizard Gellert Grindelwald in the early twentieth century. They sought to expose the magical community and provoke a war with muggles, overturning the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy and eventually forcing the non-magical population into slavery under their motto: "For the Greater Good".
They were considered "fanatics".
Between about 1900 when Grindelwald fled Britain and 1945, the year of his downfall, Dark Wizard Gellert Grindelwald formed an army of witches and wizards. Grindelwald intended to unite the Deathly Hallows, which he believed would make him and his followers invincible.
After a number of years terrorising Europe, Grindelwald was defeated by Albus Dumbledore. While the army's status at this time is unknown, it can be assumed that the remaining members were hunted down and arrested by wizarding authorities, killed for resisting, or possibly had dissolved into hiding.
