Hitler: Speeches and Proclamations, the first English translation, compiled and edited with copious notes and large commentary, by Max Domarus. In 1932, when Hitler became the most important political figure in Germany, Dr. Domarus began to collect his public statements, speeches, interviews, and letters, being conscious of their eventual documentary value. Friends at home and abroad persuaded him to make comments on this unique collection and publish it in its entirety. This publication's most distinctive feature is to be found in the clear, concise and insightful comments of the author. Volume I 1932-1934 contains: * Introduction * Hitler's personality * Political goals * Methodology of Hitler's speeches * 1932, Hitler's domestic political struggles reach their peak. His attempt to come to power via plebiscite fails, in spite of tremendous oratorical campaigns. He receives only 37% of the vote. In contrast with this, the influence he wields on leading political personalities grows decisively. * 1933, Acting under the influence of aides, Hindenburg appoints Hitler to the post of chief of a presidential cabinet and conveys upon him crucial, powerful positions. Within months, Hitler does away with all other parties besides his own and crushes the unions. Germany withdraws form the League of Nations and simultaneously launches an unlimited arms build-up. * 1934, Faced with the imminent demise of the Reichsprasident, Hitler attempts to secure the sympathies of the Reichswehr generals to himself. To this end he has the most prominent of the SA leaders murdered (Rohm affair). Without waiting for Hindenburg's actual death, Hitler has the cabinet proclaim him Hindenburg's successor (in breach of the constitution). An oath of unconditional allegiance to Hitler is required of all soldiers. * 15 photos in Vol. I
