Note 013
by Joachim C. Fest

13 IMT, XVI. Speer assured G. M. Gilbert in this connection:

'I must admit that was weakness on my part. I don't want to make myself any prettier than I am. I should have and actually did realize it sooner, but kept playing at this hypocritical game until it was too late... Well, because it was easier. I know, for example, that I could have and should have taken my stand of opposition at least as early as 20th July 1944' (Nuremberg Diary).
