A survey of the spiritual ancestors of Hitler's imperialistic ambitions, identifying the forces behind Nazism as age long heritages, rather than immediately Hitlerian, or reaction to Versailles treaty terms, or derivatives from basic German traits. The author explores the forerunners of Mein Kampf, from Treitsche, von Bernhardi, etc. back to the armed order of Teutomic Knights and the growth of Prussianism. He traces the ideas and formulas, the leader-subject attitudes, the hypocrisy, mania for world domination, aggression, egotism, fanatic and disciplinarian mentality, antagonism towards Christianity. He then turns to the challenge for those fighting on the spiritual front, warning, encouraging. Plus sale for religious book department. But very special in appeal to general market.
