Lt. Col. Zeitler; Major Schmundt
This document is a terse, enumerated summary of a discussion between Hitler and Keitel on the planned invasion of Czechoslovakia. The overall plan, and its objectives and major contingencies, are accounted for in the briefest manner possible. The objective is to present the world with a swiftly-achieved fait accompli so that protest, much less intervention, comes too late. This document is a typewritten carbon copy of excellent quality on thin, browning paper in stable condition.
