We are going to interview Hitler.
"At that time we had no army worth mentioning .... If the French had
taken any action we would have been easily defeated; Our resistance
would have been over in a few days. And the Air Force we had then
was ridiculous - a few junkers 52s from Lufthansa and not even
enough bombs for them..."
"If France had then marched into the Rhineland, we would have had to
withdraw with our tails between our legs."
“The 48 hours after the march into the
Rhineland were the most nerve-racking of
my life. If the French had opposed us then
we would have had to withdraw. Our forces
were not strong enough to even put up
with moderate resistance.”
“Think Thousand times before taking a decision But - After taking
decision never turn back even if you get Thousand difficulties!!”
“It is not truth that matters, but victory.”
- When you remilitarized the Rhineland, you took a big risk, France or
Britain could have attacked, didn´t you think about that?
+ Yes, I did, it was a big risk, if the French had attacked we would have
been easily defeated; Our resistance would have been over in a few
days, and we would have had to withdraw with our tails between our
-And what were the reasons you gave for your actions?
+We were under threat, France and the USSR had signed a mutual
prote to rection treaty to protect themselves, if we attacked. This was
like the old encirclement, so we were in danger.
-You are a very confident person, didn't you ever doubt?
+Yes I did, but I always say, think a thousand times before taking a
decision but - after taking that decision never turn back even if you get
a thousand difficulties!!
-You broke five terms of the Treaty of Versailles, and most of the
reasons you gave didn`t even make sense, but you got away with it...
+I know, but it is not truth that matters, but victory.
Done! Ready to record!! Well done!!!
