105.22.8 (Staff Evidence Analysis)
Adolf Hitler; Joachim von Ribbentrop; Mussolini; Ambassador von Mackensen; Ambassador Schmidt; President Salazar
This document is a Staff Evidence Analysis of a report of meeting between Mussolini and Ribbentrop. The main subject of the meeting and, therefore, of the report is the progress of the war (as of September 1940) and Germany's prospective plans for post-war hegemony. Hitler sees England's total defeat as necessary and inevitable and America's intervention as too belated to change the outcome. Italy and Germany envision dividing Europe and Africa between themselves, with Russia too weak to oppose this new world order and even the United States incapable of opposing an eventual alliance (Hitler supposes) of Germany, Italy, Spain, and Japan. This document is a typewritten copy of good quality on brown, brittle paper.
