I have read Hitler's first book. As to his ideas, tell me what you think of this document:
The notes of this meeting were written by Lieutenant-Colonel of General Staff Schmundt, Hitler's adjutant.
This document is not questioned, and sometimes there is discussion whether Goering was present at the begining of the meeting and other details like that.
From Schmundt's notes:
Danzig is not the object that is at issue. The issue for us is the extension of living space in the east and securing of food supplies as well as solving the Baltic problem. Food supplies can only be obtained in areas sparsely populated. Beside the fertility the German thorough agriculture will immensely increase the surpluses.
In Europe there is no other possibility.
So far so good. This is what we expect of Hitler after reading his views. On to the relevant passages:
The problem 'Poland' is not to be separated from the conflict with the west.
The Führer doubts the possibility of a peaceful confrontation with England. It is necessary to be prepared for the confrontation. England sees in our development the foundation of a hegemony that would weaken England.England is thus our enemy, and the confrontation will be one of life and death.
England knows that an unfortunate outcome of the war will mean the end of its world power.
England is the motor that drives against Germany. It's strength lies in the following:
1.) The Briton is proud, brave, tough, resistant and has an organizational talent. He knows how to take advantage of any new event. He has the adventure spirit and the courage of the Nordic Race. Quality sinks with broadening. The German average is better.
UK would have been renamed the Reichskommissariat Gross-Britannien
. I can tell you who the leader would have been, a mild university professor - Dr. Six. No joke.
As was mentioned in a previous post, Hitler had an affinity for the Empire.
His favourite film was all about the heroic British Empire!
I guess he had an affinity for the Soviet Empire too since his favourite actress was Olga Chekhova - a Soviet spy.
