Hitler with Wehrmacht troops: "I am not a brutal man by nature, thus cold reason guides my actions."

Carolyn Yeager and Ray Goodwin read and comment on the Aug. 16-20, 1942 lunch and dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by aide Heinrich Heim, who has returned. 1h20m. Included in this episode:

  • Churchill decided on war years before 1939 - praise for the French workman - obstruction from the Wehrmacht's niggardly ways;
  • Hitler recalls how he imposed his will and used all his powers against the Army, Navy and his own ministers in order to prepare Germany for war in spite of the cost;
  • Crimes against animals vs people - judges and national morale - different treatment of criminals during peacetime and wartime;
  • Function of law is to safeguard the public - Hitler's own experience with lawyers - officers of the judiciary must be the best a country has.

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

Adolf Hitler On Carolyn Yeager And White Nationalism


I absolutely hate that film, Downfall, and the hideous actor who plays the role of Hitler. I have never watched it.

But ... I finally decided I had better read the subtitles and I have to admit I laughed a lot and thought it quite funny. Especially the line about Deanna and ratings.  Correct or not, supportive or not, you have done a very clever job of writing the subtitles to fit the action.

So I guess I will say Thank You. I'm starting to feel downright touched.

BTW, a new example of White Nationalists who really don't get it can be found here: http://www.majorityrights.com/audio/DrChristianLindtner.mp3  It's just out.
