Picker, Tischgesprache, entry for 12th April 1942. Compare this with Hitler's remarks in his speech to the commanders of the Wehrmacht on 22nd August 1939:
'We have nothing to lose, only something to gain. As a result of our restrictions our economic position is such that we can only hold on for a few years. Goring can confirm this. There is no other course left to us; we must act'
(IMT, XXVI, 798-PS).
