Winston Churchill om Mein Kampf: “here was the new Koran of faith and war…”

At læse Winston Churchill er som at træde ind i en anden tidsalder. Fra monumentale The Second World War (6 bind), en kort passage fra Vol. I (The Gathering Storm), Book I (From War to War), omhandlende den tyske oprustning – og her specifikt Adolf Hitler ca. 1935.

“Hitler’s sentence was reduced from four years to thirteen months. These months in the Landsberg fortress were however, sufficient to enable him to complete in outline Mein Kampf, a treatise on his political philosophy inscribed to the dead of the recent Putsch. When eventually he came to power, there was no book which deserved more careful study from the rulers, political and military, of the Allied Powers. All was there—the programme of German resurrection; the technique of party propaganda; the plan for combating Marxism; the concept of a National-Socialist State; the right position of Germany at the summit of the world. Here was the new Koran of faith and war: turgid, verbose, shapeless, but pregnant with its message. (1948. S. 43)
