~From his rise to political prominence in 1923 to the defeat of France
in 1940, Hitler manipulated the democratic press as no other dictator
had ever done before. To complete and often to counterbalance his
innumerable speeches, he granted interviews to journalists, most
often chosen deliberately, in order to appease Western public opinion
regarding the reality of his goals and the ruthless way they were being
pursued. Although hundreds of thousands of printed pages have been
devoted to the Fuhrer for more than 70 years, these interviews given to
the top American, British and French journalists of the time have never
been published, save for a handful of quotes. Yet they are crucial, as much
for what they dissimulate and for what they reveal.
They are published here for the first time. Eric Branca has selected the
16 most significant ones (out of about 30). He has translated them and
carefully introduced and annotated them. In addition, he has written an
introductory chapter entitled “Hitler and the foreign press. A history of
fascination”. It demonstrates what a hold Hitler had over the West as he
rose to power.
