France and the Nazi Menace


Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the political situation of Germany constructed by French intelligence, which emphasized the growing control Hitler and the National Socialist party exercised over all levels of German society. Intelligence officers judged the average German intellect to be ‘lacking faculties of critical and independent thought’ which served as a manifestation of widely held assumptions that the average German was deficient in intellectual vivacity.

Keywords:   French intelligence, Germany, Hitler, National Socialist, Gleichschaltung
