During 1940 and 1941, he believed he was close to winning the war. This book t only examines Nazi imperial architecture, armament, and plans to regain colonies but also reveals what Hitler said in moments of truth. The author presents many new sources and information, including Hitler's little kwn intention to attack New York City with long-range bombers in the days of Pearl Harbor.
