Carolyn Yeager and Ray Goodwin read and comment on the June 21-27, 1942 lunch and dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by aide Henry Picker. Included in this episode:

  • Why Rommel and Dietl are the most popular Generals in Germany -- the Volkswagen and desert warfare;
  • Scrutiny of the people's activities  by the security police and regulation by the federal ministries should follow the rule of less, rather than more;
  • Problems with transportation of fruits and vegetable, and other items, must be dealt with;
  • Importance of good, strong leadership in the Gaus and newly added territories;
  • Hitler: Nothing more harmful to the organisation of a State than over-centralization and limitation of local power;
  • Best method for electing heads of state, including that a son should never succeed his father;
  •  Hitler commends Leon Degrelle (even though he was a Royalist) and the  "Flamands", then speaks of the importance of road construction in Russia to begin immediately;
  • The coalition between Great Britain and the United States, Russia and China requires a miracle to hold together.

The edition of Hitler's Table Talk being used was translated by Norman Cameron and R.H. Stevens, published by Enigma Books, New York, and can be found as a pdf here.
