he ordered the young officer to drive the flies away, but the officer pretended not to hear his absurd order. He was furious and said to him contemptuously, “you are just an incompetent person. My Secretary can successfully use the first pocket submarine, but as an officer of the SS, you can’t even drive away a fly.” (the story of the pocket submarine is definitely recorded in History) the young officer had to leave the conference room immediately and was sent to a combat unit on the eastern front.
Hitler not only paid careful attention to his external image, but also cared about his reputation. He always did not lose face at all costs. Under no circumstances will he damage his reputation by settling and arbitrating disputes. His sense of responsibility is flexible and flexible. He was so cunning and cunning that he was cynical that he knew how to release himself even when he was most likely to affect his reputation.
I saw him do such things without scruples. He knows everything and knows everything like the back of his hand. He always lurks in the dark so that he doesn’t lose his prestige when encountering thorny problems. He knows how to use scapegoats, which is really impressive. He used the most plausible excuse to cover up the underlying causes of his behavior and avoid all the reputation losses involved.
when Hitler wanted to get rid of someone, he rarely said the real motivation, but he always liked to use some excuses that would lead everyone astray. Field marshal von Blomberg is a good example. He was the victim of the most shameful conspiracy and finally had to give up the post of defense minister. When he told Hitler the idea of marrying his female secretary, Hitler found a clever excuse to dismiss him because he hindered Hitler’s empire formation plan in this position. The Fuehrer agreed to his marriage and acted as a witness with Goering. Von Blomberg was stunned when people cited a Gestapo report listing the doubts of his young wife’s past to order him to leave the army immediately. Hitler thought of everything in advance, and even thought that von Blomberg might disrupt his plan if he agreed to divorce. Therefore, in his letter asking Blomberg to resign, Hitler made it clear that he could return to his original position only after staying abroad for a year. A few months after the incident of
, the IDF entered Austria under Hitler’s direct order. I believe it was completely planned in advance. Only in this way can Hitler’s plan to invade Austria be implemented, and von Blomberg was the one who dared to rise up against it.
another marriage that is not a match is another treatment. Captain Albright wanted to marry a woman born in a small citizen’s family. Hitler’s naval adviser and admiral in command of the German fleet had reservations about this. Hitler disagreed with his admiral and approved the marriage. This shows that if Hitler had private calculations, he could also show his authority as he did to von Blomberg.
this matter is often mentioned when sitting by the fire and chatting. But Hitler always shirked his responsibility, claiming that von Blomberg had to leave because the military group of the general staff of the national defense force was uncompromising. Strangely enough, Hitler brought up the Blomberg incident again after the attempted assassination on July 20, 1944. He angrily put all the blame for the military defeat on the officers of the general staff, and cited the example of von Blomberg, saying that they should have pointed out the inappropriateness of their marriage to him long before the wedding ceremony, rather than afterwards, in order to prove their sin and hypocrisy.
Hitler had a hobby of “arranging” marriage for others. I know some people are disgusted by him because they don’t marry the woman he recommends. His aide Bruckner is an example. Hitler suggested that he marry a young woman that Hitler himself had always liked very much, but Bruckner did not reply. Bruckner not only rejected his master’s suggestion, but even disagreed with him and wanted to marry the daughter of a woman who seemed to be responsible for Mrs. Goebbels’s first divorce. Hitler opposed Bruckner’s marriage to this woman in order to show his kindness to Mrs. Goebbels. But Bruckner showed his unwavering will. He thought that as time went on, Hitler’s bad mood caused by this incident would calm down. However, he did not fully estimate the vengeful character of the head of state. Since then, all his innovative plans have been criticized by his boss. It was hard to live there. In the end, he had to ask for dismissal.
in the next few years, Hitler was never willing to admit that Bruckner was out of favor because he insisted on his own way, but his hatred would often be revealed in the conversation. The name of the woman Bruckner liked had never been mentioned, and Hitler was still full of praise for the woman Bruckner did not accept.
another example is that one of Hitler’s entourage wants to marry Eva Braun’s sister. Hitler thought it was a good plan and predicted that he would have an extremely brilliant future. The marriage blew up for personal reasons. Hitler gnashed his teeth at this. He didn’t know how to forgive others. On the contrary, his unhappiness increased day by day. He had a grudge against those who disobeyed his orders and didn’t give in to his power, and would retaliate sooner or later. So the young man soon had to bear the consequences for his disobedience to the arrangement. One day Hitler was having a meeting with his generals when a fly annoyed him. He ordered the young officer to drive the flies away, but the officer pretended not to hear his absurd order. Hitler was furious and said to him contemptuously, “you are just an incompetent person. My Secretary can successfully use the first pocket submarine, but you, as an officer of the SS, can’t even drive away a fly.” (the story of pocket submarine is unique in historyThe young officer had to leave the conference room immediately and was sent to a combat unit on the eastern front.
