This book is a gem of gems. In 1939 hitler upped the ante by invading Poland. But prior to that the citizens of the United States had formed their opinions of the Third Reich and of hitler based on news, word of mouth and readings. Clara Leiser had a novel idea. Put forth a collection of Third Reich quotes and allow the American public to judge for themselves whether the Third Reich was lunacy or genius. Not withstanding the bias unavoidable in compiling a work such as this, the only conclusion that can be reached is the sheer madness and arrogance of the Third Reich. It is a treasure from a crucial period in modern World history. While copies certainly abound, only one copy is known to exist in this circle of collectors.
