Ray Goodwin and Carolyn Yeager read and comment on the Sept. 5-7, 1942 and June 13-15, 1943  lunch and dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by attorney Heinrich Heim. Included in this episode:

  • The failings of monarchies, the stupidity of Princes - human need for an idol - courageous Munoz Grande;
  • Stalingrad so strongly defended because of its name - Dutch interbred with Malays - Church put religion over race - our soldiers marrying foreign girls ends in catastrophe;
  • Britons have no concept of chivalry in war;
  • No mercy on schoolmasters - discourage competing museums in major German cities - wants a military museum in Linz;
  • Nineteenth century was time of greatest German masterpieces in every branch of art - Munich lacked the necessary money to build quality edifices - men fight for the artistic and intellectual heritage of their nation;
  • In defence of Metternich - Bismarck needed a war in 1866;
  • Natural wonders of landscape attract people more than art museums - poor taste in art can be tolerated, but not depravity.
