""He himself has nothing in common with the mass; like every great man he is all personality... In order to reach his goal, he is prepared to trample on his closest friends... As the need arises, he can trample them [the people] with the boots of a grenadier."

From the prize-winning essay “How Must The Man Be Constituted Who Will Lead Germany Back to Her Old Heights?" by Rudolf Heß, Hitler's future Deputy Führer"

The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by William L. Shirer
“To some Germans and, no doubt, to most foreigners it appeared that a charlatan had come to power in Berlin. To the majority of Germans Hitler had — or would shortly assume — the aura of a truly charismatic leader. They were to follow him blindly, as if he possessed a divine judgment, for the next twelve tempestuous years.”
