This document is terse summary of the interrogation virtually reproduced in free and direct transcription by document 37.04 (Jodl interrogation, 27 Aug. 1945), "Interrogation of - Jodl." This summary notes the Germans' objections to the terms of the Versailles treaty and their expectation that its terms would be abrogated once German military power was reestablished. The summary also points out Germany's need for living space and Jodl's contention that the country could attain self-sufficiency of raw materials and natural resources. This document is a typewritten copy of adequate to fair quality on fragile, browning paper.
