Hitler's Last Days (Yank Magazine, 1945)

YANK reporter Harry Sions listened in as sixteen Nazi officials, having known and worked with Hitler in various capacities through the years, sat back and recalled the events of Hitler's last year. Much was said regarding the failed assassination attempt (project Valkyrie) but some of the more interesting content refers to the closing days in the bunker with Bormann, Keitel and Jodl.

It was reported that shortly after he took up residence in the bunker, Hitler's hair and mustache was transformed to a bright white, yet he was not the only man in Europe in need of hair dye; click here about these other fellows.

The Review of Mein Kampf (Atlantic Monthly, 1933)

With Hitler's rise to power in 1933, the German-speaking Alice Hamilton (1869 - 1970; sister to the classics scholar, Edith) was assigned the task of reviewing Mein Kampf (1925) by Adolf Hitler for THE ATLANTIC MONTHLY. She didn't like it.

"He loves rough, red-blooded words - 'relentless', 'steely', 'iron-hearted', 'brutal'; his favorite phrase is 'ruthless brutality'. His confidence in himself is unbounded."
The royalties generated by the sales of Mein Kampf made Adolf Hitler a very rich man. To read about this wealth and Hitler's financial adviser, click here.

Although Hitler didn't mention it his book, German-Americans drove him crazy.

The Dwindling A.E.F. (American Legion Weekly, 1919)

The intended readers for the attached article were the newly initiated members of the American Legion (ie. recently demobilized U.S. veterans), who might have had a tough time picturing a Paris that was largely free of swaggering, gum-chewing Doughboys gallivanting down those broad-belted boulevards, but that is what this journalist, Marquis James (1891 - 1955) intended. At the time of this printing, the A.E.F. (American Expeditionary Force) had been shaved down from 4,000,000 to half that number and re-christened the A.F.F. (American Forces in France) and the A.F.G. (American Forces in Germany). With a good bit of humor, the article concentrates on the antics of the American Third Army in Germany as they performed their "Bolshevist busting" duties in the Coblenz region.

High Society Ladies' Rooms (Stage Magazine, 1937)

The New York café society of the Thirties was well documented by such swells as Cole Porter and Peter Arno - not so well-known, however, were the goings-on in the ladies' bathrooms at such swank watering holes as El Morocco, Twenty-One, Kit Kat, Crystal Garden and the famed Stork Club. That is why this one page article is so vital to the march of history - written by a noble scribe who braved the icy waters of Lake Taboo to report on the conversations and the general appearance of each of these "dressing rooms".

"The Rainbow Room, Waldorf, and Crystal Garden are modern and show a decorators hand, but the only really plush dressing room we know is at Twenty-One."

"Strangely enough, it doesn't matter whether it's the ladies' room of El Morocco, Roseland, or a tea room; the same things are said in all of them. First hair, then men, then clothes; those are the three favorite topics of conversation in the order of their importance."

The Photograph (Yank Magazine, 1943)

Attached you will find a few well-chosen words about that famous 1943 photograph that the censors of the War Department saw fit to release to the American public. The image was distributed in order that the "over-optimistic and complacent" citizens on the home front gain an understanding that this war is not without a cost.

A haunting image even sixty years later, the photograph depicts three dead American boys washed-over by the tide of Buna Beach, New Guinea. The photographer was George Strock of LIFE MAGAZINE and the photograph did it's job.

German Officers Recall Their Days as P.O.W.s (Times Literary Supplement, 1921)

Attached is a book review of what was described as the first book of it's kind: a compilation of assorted recollections by Imperial German officers of their years spent in captivity at the officer's prisoner of war camp at Skipton in Yorkshire.

P.O.W. Camp for the S.S. Women (Yank Magazine, 1945)

Among the many dubious legacies of the Second World War is a growing cult of males who have tended to feel that the German women of the SS are worthy of their attention (Kate Winslet's appearance in the 2008 movie, "The Reader" didn't help).

This article (and the accompanying photographs) make it quite clear that no one would have found these men more pathetic than the G.I. guards of Prisoner of War Enclosure 334, who were charged with the task of lording over these Teutonic gorgons and who, to the man, found these women to be wildly unattractive.

"The girls who served in Adolf's army are a sorry, slovenly looking lot. In a P.O.W. camp near Florence they spill their gripes to G.I guards."

Harold Ross of the New Yorker ('48 Magazine, 1948)

Twenty-three years after Harold Ross (1892 – 1951) launched THE NEW YORKER, this profile of the man appeared on the newsstands:

"Ross is a kind of impostor. THE NEW YORKER is urbane; cactus is more urbane than Ross. THE NEW YORKER carries understatement almost to the point of inaudibility; with Ross the expletive crowds out most of the eight parts of speech....It is true that he never had a high school education; but it is also true that he is a master grammarian, and that the superb sense of style which informs THE NEW YORKER flows in part from his clean, uncompromising feeling for the English language."

Click here to read the second half of the Harold Ross interview. This portion is decorated with rejected cartoons from THE NEW YORKER...

Harold Ross always remembered fondly his days as an editor at THE STARS & STRIPES, click here to read an article about that period in his life.

In Defense of President Hoover (Pathfinder Magazine, 1948)

Attached is a small excerpt from the PATHFINDER review of Eugene Lyons' 1948 book Our Unknown Ex-President. The author outlined the various measures taken by the Hoover administration during the earliest years of the Great Depression in hopes that the flood waters would subside:

"He fought for banking reform laws, appropriations for public works, home-loan banks to protect farms and residences. He asked for millions for relief to be administered by state and local organizations".

"A Democratic Congress refused to heed his suggestions. An avalanche of misfortunes, including droughts, floods and world economic crises, made his positions even more difficult... In spite of these obstacles, Lyons believes that the country was well on the road to recovery in 1932 and that it was the election of Roosevelt which induced the bank panic and prolonged the Depression until World War II".

The Soviet Invasion of Finland (Pathfinder Magazine, 1940)

Just as Lenin had a triumphal military adventure, Stalin, too, believed that he could deploy Soviet forces victoriously. However, when Lenin launched his enterprise against neighboring Georgia in 1921, he had the benefit of skilled military leaders under his command - this was not the case with Stalin, who had seen fit to purge his military of thousands of officers (1934 - 1939). When Stalin's legions attacked Finland in November of 1939, the Soviet losses that were inflicted by the numerically inferior Finns were far greater than he ever thought possible.

The attached article appeared during the closing weeks of the war and it reported on the outside aid the Finns were receiving.
