This document is a detailed summary of a conversation predominantly between Hitler and Molotov on the subject of German-Russian cooperation against the aspiring hegemony of England and America. Hitler represents his intention of ending the war after the Polish campaign but states that England and France want to continue it. Although less cordial toward Russia than toward Italy, Hitler at least claims to want a German-Soviet alliance; he does, however, state that the two nations "could never become one world" (p. 1). He seems to want Soviet Russia as a counter to America, which he appraises as a serious threat to Germany's political, economic, and territorial ambitions in Europe. This document is a typewritten carbon copy of fair to good quality on thin, browning paper in stable condition.
