Considering the individual this book chronicles, I would not be entirely surprised if most did not approach it with an objective mind. Its very easy to allow one's prejudices to overtake them when approaching a subject such as this. However, I was encouraged in my years as a History and Political Science student to leave my prior convictions at the door, and to analyze material with an objective and focused mind. Dealing with an individual like Hitler, objectivity in analyzing everything this bo ...more

It would be easy to dismiss the spavined dog and pretty cousin-loving vegetarian's chit-chat as a nightmare of effect of magical and disgusting charm or the hallucinations of hypnotized, perverted, and deranged dinner guests from hell. Who has such people over to dinner anyway? This item from the records of hades is no better than the unhinged ravings of Mein Kampf, one will say, a book itself so very poorly written and poorly arranged as to defy even the determined and staggered attempts of ass ...more

I read through this very quickly, mainly looking for Hitler's religious views. Even though the transcription and translation may have been filtered and Hitler was conscious he was being recorded, I think a few conclusions can be gleaned. Hitler believed in God and in Jesus. He did not like the Catholic Church nor the Russion Orthodox Church. My take is because they were his competitors for power.

But, the idea that he was an atheist is contradicted by these transcriptions.

He believed Jesus was

I'm finding the introduction by Hugh T Roper very sus.
Why do I nee to be first told what a faulty individual Hitler was. Is it not sufficient to just red what they say he said.
Fascinating in a weird way, but after that somewhat odd intro I'd like to have some confidence in the translation

This book is a collection of monologues by Hitler, most of them taken down by his lackey Bormann, a kind of third-rate Boswell, dating from summer 1941 shortly after the invasion of Russia in to the end of November 1944, by which time the Allies were closing in on Germany. At dinner Hitler would bore everyone with his two-hour long monologues. These transcripts are only what were found to be most interesting in them.

Hitler believed his racialist philosophy had scientific, biological underpinning

Very interesting and will give the student of history or politics a better understanding of Hitler's thought and opinions. It's perhaps an even better view than My Struggle, which was meant for a general audience and also was filtered through Rudolf Hess.

Read this book for some research I was doing for my own book. Its not a page turner, nor is it intended to be. I am happy this book is out there so that researchers can get inside the head of this man. I found the answers I needed.
Rob
very interesting insight into Hitler's personal comments but many have disputed it's veracity or the veracity of the original French translation.
Anyone sharing a link to the original german text will be greatly appreciated.
Jason Cecil
This book is tedious to read. Some of hilter's thoughts are interesting and some horrifying, but the slog is too slow to do it all in one setting.
Michael
really interesting, all taken from the wolf's lair during the war.
Stephen
An academic chronicle of dinner conversations recorded at the time.
Jerilyn
Not actively reading at this time, to be finished later.

The pdf, of course. Wish I had the print version.

Talk about your world class assholes!

“I don't see much future for the Americans ... it's a decayed country. And they have their racial problem, and the problem of social inequalities ... my feelings against Americanism are feelings of hatred and deep repugnance ... everything about the behaviour of American society reveals that it's half Judaised, and the other half negrified. How can one expect a State like that to hold together?” 51 likes
