"If Stalin had been given another 10 or 15 years, Russia would have become the mightiest State in the world." -Hitler

Carolyn Yeager and Ray Goodwin read and comment on the Aug. 25-28, 1942 lunch and dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by aide, attorney Heinrich Heim. Included in this episode:

  • Schacht the Freemason - more individual responsibility - overcoming crises - French & Italians, Swiss, Swedes and Danes;
  • Stalin has remade Russia - British hesitancy to advance - Peace of Westphalia - benefits from Dieppe raid - railroads beat river traffic but Danube will be great traffic artery;
  • Resources of Ukraine and Crimea -Spain and Latin bloc - Russian powers of resistance - Charles Martel prevented Germans becoming Muslim - Hungarians and Austrians - Budapest most beautiful city in Europe;
  • Air raids and anti-artilliary guns - New weapons must be given a fair chance.

The edition of Hitler's Table Talk being used was translated by Norman Cameron and R.H. Stevens, published by Enigma Books, New York, and can be found as a pdf here
