Miller D,

You can't do Business with Hitler

Hitler is not only the greatest military chief 
in history, he aspires to be known as the greatest 
builder of the ages. Ever since he failed of mission 
to the architectural school in Vienna, he has 
cherished his plans for rebuilding everything, no 
matter what, particularly if it was on a huge scale. 
He has been constructing at Nuremberg a stadium 
holding 400,000 people. Just outside is the Zeppelin 
field with accommodations for 1,500,000. He has 
announced the future construction of an avenue of 
triumph between Berlin and Munich ...... Incidentally, 
Hitler has removed the Hohenzollern make 
room for his own improvements. In central Berlin he 
has started to construct vast north-south and east-
west axes, ...... Many superbuildings line these 
avenues, either planned or under way. 

The River Spree was unfortunately in the way, but 
Hitler is going to move the river; at least he has said 
so. In Hamburg, on the other hand, he is going to allow 
the River Elbe to remain; but he plans to build a super-
Brooklyn-Bridge over it, with skyscraper towers 65 
stories high at each end. These plans are, of course, 
subject to many revisions. Hitler changes his mind 
frequently. He loves nothing better than to sprawl 
over huge maps sketching in buildings at various points 
and rubbing them out again. In 1937 he constructed a 
new central office building to house the chancellery 
and staff. In the spring of 1938 he changed his mind, 
tore it down, and had it built again according to a 
different plan. Hitler at first hoped to make Munich 
his capital city, but in recent years he has apparently 
veered toward continuing Berlin as the center; at least 
his elaborate construction plans there lead to this belief.

However, he has his own private capital city at 
Berchtesgaden .......
