The Nazis - Adolf Hitler

What Hitler Wanted (Omnibooks Magazine, 1942)

Hearst reporter H.R. Knickerbocker (1898 1949) had been closely watching Hitler since 1923 and pointed out that on April 29, 1941 the Axis forces had printed a "trial balloon" on the pages of the JAPAN TIMES ADVERTISER that clearly indicated the peace terms that were acceptable to the Nazis. Attached is Knickerbocker's outline of this proposal, as well as the correspondent's astute commentary that he had prepared for his 1942 bestseller, Is Tomorrow Hitler's?

From Amazon: Is Tomorrow Hitler's?:


Hitler's Final Days (Pageant Magazine, 1960)

This article pieces together the last few days of Hitler's bunker experiences - who was there, how did he pass his time and the subjects he addressed. All the matters discussed herein was gleaned from the intelligence agencies of the three victorious armies that marched into Berlin during the Spring of 1945. The author goes into some detail as to whether he and his entourage could have escaped on foot plane or tank and rules each one out categorically. He further examines the possibility as to how this same group could have escaped to Argentina by submarine or air - and rules these possibilities out as well (the author, however, omits the possibility that they could have escaped through the elaborate tunnel system below the streets of Berlin).


Hitler's Military Options in 1940 (Click Magazine, 1940)

A Phony War magazine article by Major General George Ared White (1880 - 1941) in which he muses wistfully (as Oregon men are wont to do) as to all the various, dreadful choices that were spread before Herr Hitler in the early months of 1940.

As varied as Hitler's military options were, the General believed that France's Maginot Line was impregnable and he did not think that Hitler would commit to such an undertaking. General White believed Hitler had six options before him which are all illustrated on the attached cartoon map.


A Very Hitler Christmas (Pathfinder Magazine, 1939)

Whether it was the nog, the tannenbaum or just the good ol' spirit of the season - no one knows - but in late of December of 1938, the "nice Hitler" came out for some airing:

"Partly as a Yuletide truce and partly because most of them were suffering from severe frostbite, 18 'reformed Communists' and 7,000 Jews were released from concentration camps."


From the Beer Hall Putsch and Beyond (Literary Digest, 1933)

This article appeared a few weeks after Hitler came to power and it lucidly explains how "Handsome Adolf" had first gained notoriety in Germany.


Some Trivial Facts About Hitler (Yank Magazine, 1945)

Assorted observations from the man who operated Hitler's elevator at Berchtesgaden can be found herein.

What you won't find "herein" is a piece of Hitler trivia that I just picked-up. The story goes that the American comedian Bob Hope was given a tour of Hitler's bunker shortly after the German surrender. Accompanied by a U.S. colonel, the two men brought lots of American cigarette cartons with them to bribe the Russian guards (the bunker was in the Soviet sector); Hope walked away with the enormous banner that was draped in the dictator's lounge, as well as the handle off of Hitler's toilet. The toilet handle has remained among the comedian's possessions in Toluca Lake, California ever since.
