This document is an English-language translation of a letter by Hitler to Mussolini. The letter recounts decisive German victories during the invasion of Russia and prospects for securing these gains against British countermeasures. Hitler is confident and possessed by a sense of power. He sees Germany's military position as impregnable and considers the war, although not yet finished, as already won. This document is a typewritten original of excellent quality on sturdy, browning paper in very good condition.
