Note 027
by Joachim C. Fest

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).
From Chapter 4 ,The Reich Chancellor , Part 1 of The Face Of The Third Reich by J.C. Fest -- See further Notes
