Name: Hitler's English Inspirers

Subtitle:

Author: Sarkisyanz, Manuel

Editor:

Category: German-Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2003

ISBN: 0 85034 086 1

Contents: Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party did not come out of a vacuum—nor were they the only—evil—excrescences of a recalcitrant Germany/Austria. The Nazi leader is rightly reviled for his anti-Semitism, expansionism and genocide. But he did not originate these aberrations of Statecraft—neither the theory of them nor the practice. All had been features of the English family of nations—a family in which Hitler as a Teuton demanded a place. An ambition which very nearly succeeded under Neville Chamberlain. England did not become the major Superpower of the era by application of sweet reason. America existed by extermination of the Red Indians, Canada of the Innuit, Australia by the then ongoing destruction of the Aborigines; New Zealand ousted the Maoris—and the new colonisation project in Palestine was authorised by Britain just as Hitler was becoming receptive to geopolitical ideas. What Hitler planned to do in the western reaches of Russia was not different in kind from any of these: they all justified themselves by Social Darwinism. As the Ministerial English Liberal, Sir Charles Dilke, claimed: "the Anglo-Saxon is the only extirpating race on earth. Up to the commencement of the now inevitable destruction of the Red Indians?, of the Maoris and of the [aboriginal] Australians, no numerous race has ever been blotted out by an invader". Professor Sarkisyanz in this erudite and well-referenced work shows how Hitler, a convinced Anglophile, believed that Germany could be brought out of the Versailles slough of despond by emulating British methods of rule, of leadership training and of social conformity, to become an ally of the British Empire around the world. But that meant he had, amongst other things, to teach his Germans to replicate the mindset of his mentors. This book shows from Nazi sources how they—and their ideological forbears—were influenced by writers such as Carlyle (who proposed forced labour for Caribbean negroes and the regimentation of labour), Disraeli (a convinced racist), Houston Stewart Chamberlain (a race theorist who directly inspired Hitler's anti-Semitic genocide and was related to the British Establishment Chamberlains) and a host of others. Carthill—the senior British functionary in India, who extolled the efficacy of 'administrative massacre' to suppress revolt—helped to stimulate Nazi brutality. While Hitler certainly surpassed his inspirers, his action continued a well-charted direction. His downfall came because, having learned how to act from the British example, he did not know—unlike his mentors—when to stop.

This method was necessitated by Bismarck's opposition to the venture. Peters' naive account is revealing of how Empires are built in practice. Angela Clifford's introduction supplies a European context for Germany's Imperial ambitions in the late nineteenth century. Translated by Philip O'Connor. 72 pp (A4)
