RARE IS ANY CREDIBLE LITERATURE DEALING WITH ADOLF HITLER – the man, and his time on the stage of history. There are, of course, tons of articles and books written about that, but the key word in the lead sentence is “credible.” Anyone who has any ability to think for themselves knows that any such writing is automatically “qualified” right off the bat by letting the reader know that Adolf Hitler was the most vile, evil, megalomaniac who ever lived. And what follows that introduction is nothing but Cinderella fairy-tales that are worthless in any CREDIBLE study of the man and his era. See the message under the photo on page 128 about a false statement from a Dr. Ferdinand Sauerbruch, explained as “it was the style of the time after the war to make up wild stories about Adolf Hitler.”

  • Pre-and-post-war Vienna -Churchill's visit to Moscow - smoking is a repulsive habit;
  • Justice and injustice - girls and children less important than a Hare - May nights in Carinthia - grieves loss of good Gauleiter of Carinthia;
  • British politics - Lords Beaverbrook and Rothermere - the Nazi Princess;
  • Farming in Germany and Ukraine - never give in to the British - not at war with British people but with small clique who rule them - German art and how Jews try to destroy it;
  • Speaking several languages not sign of intelligence - German artistes: little Endres and Grock the clown - likeability of Spain and Spaniards.
