Compiled by Martin Bormann. Hitler’s Table Talk consists of notes of the German leader’s casual lunch and dinnertime conversations with his close friends and colleagues.
Copied down by adjutants and edited for accuracy by his private secretary Martin Bormann, these discussions reveal Hitler’s wartime thoughts on his enemies, friends, and a variety of topics including art, science, history, religion, nature, Europeans, non-Europeans and a vast number of other topics which reveal his astonishingly wide general knowledge.
The topics under discussion varied greatly, as the reader will discover. Hitler’s remarkable general knowledge serves as a testament to his self-education, and his ability to talk with authority on almost any topic was remarked upon by many observers.
