real history--from the horses mouth!, 15 Jun. 2011
These diaries by a recognised scumbag nazi are extremely interesting if you want an insight into how their cunning, evil and deluded minds worked. For me the great advantage of the diary format is that it was written at the time, in the heat of the moment, without the advantage of the hindsight that we now have the benefit if. You can clearly observe how the early arrogance and confidence of Goebbels and the nazis in absolute victory, mastery of the subject nations and their planned enslavement or even elimination is slowly overcome by a dawning realisation that everything is not quite going planmassig. As the great Soviet resistance to nazi hegemony, supported by the Anglo-American bombing starts to fight back and rescue the world from enslavement, our little nazi starts to lose some of his arrogance, until by the end he is just a quivering jelly, who ended by cowardly killing himself, his wife and children to avoid just retribution for his crimes.
This is real history, from the horses mouth--we need to read it and above all learn from it--the resurgence of racism in old Europe is still unfortunately a growing cause for concern--the BNP,Le Pen,Jobbik ..and others.. are back!
