Carolyn Yeager and Ray Goodwin read and comment on the July 17-22, 1942 lunch and dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by aide Henry Picker. Included in this episode:

  • Goebbels failed to introduce wired-wireless radio control in Germany before the war to prevent foreign broadcast;
  • Roads superior to railroads for unification--Hitler wants to create a network of autobahnen from Berlin to the East Wall;
  • Hitler agrees to an interview with a foreign journalist so he can respond to the persistent talk of a Second Front, i.e Allied landing;
  • Discussion of "seaman's yarrns" and considering superstitions of the public when making decisions;
  • The Channel Islands and how they could be used after the war;
  • Hitler criticises lawyers again and makes some very good points;
  • Russia's strength and the Stakhanov system--Bormann tells of his tour of Ukraine;
  • More on how to treat the local populations in the occupied territories (see Ukraine images here).

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
