Read full description of the books:
Published in 1940, this purports to be Rauschning's near-contemporaneous record of numerous conversations with Hitler. Several historians (Ian Kershaw) think it's a fraud, and that such conversations never took place.
I don't really care if the conversations are authentic. They do reflect Rauschning's views on Hitler, some of which are quite thoughtful and reflect possibilities I have not read in other authors. In particular, since Rauchning was the Nazi Gauleiter (party leader) of Danzig, he makes some observations about the interactions between Hitler and Polish leader Pilsudski that ring quite true to me ...
*** Hitler wanted intelligence regarding Poland (Pilsudski) … what will Poland do if I force through the Austrian Anschluss?
*** Hitler: I should prefer an eastern policy of agreement with Poland rather than one directed against her … I shall give the Poles a chance … they have men who seem to be realists (Pilsudski, Beck) … they have as little use for democracy as we have … but of course they will have to be generous in their views ... then I shall be so as well
*** Hitler wondered if Poland would be prepared to yield certain districts to Germany in return for certain others ... he was also considering the possibility of attacking Russia with the assistance of Poland ... he recognized that Poland would want an outlet to the Black Sea, but said they would have to give up any pretensions to Ukrainian territory
*** Rauschning thought Pilsudski had designs on the Ukraine, Lithuania and Latvis … dreams of a Greater Polish Empire reaching from the Baltic to the Black Sea, from Riga to Kiev
These and other observations not only describe a significant chess game between Germany and Poland, at a time when Poland was the stronger and Pilsudski was considering whether he should attack, they also suggest to me several possible opportunities to involve my characters in these 1932-34 events.
