  • Maximum mechanization of an army does not defeat larger man-power - Hitler expresses strong criticism for Kaiser Wilhelm II, praise for Ferdinand of Bulgaria;
  • Alfred Rosenberg and the Volkischer Beobachter - after the Reichstag fire Hitler and Goebbels put out the next day's edition;
  • Baltic Germans - Hitler a “non-family man” - women's peccadillos bring fresh blood into a family - Bavarian girls are not virgins - “rural custom of matrimonial trial";
  • Dialects vs standard German - stenographers and secretaries;
  • British gained their sense of superiority in India - India a source of great income, they and Mexicans engaged in human sacrifice before the White man came;
  • Hitler not fond of local crafts, including German - Don't try to change native peoples - Stalin and the Jews - Lloyd George a wise man - some war comments.
