Walter Dornberger Typed Letter Signed. Excellent content TLS "Walter R. Dornberger", 2 pages, 7.25" x 10.5", Boston, NY, Jan. 8, 1963, to a William Stanhope in response to his questions on World War II and Germany. In part: "The common person in Germany never believed that Hitler would conquer the world. However, they believed until 'the bitter end' the he would win the war. Extensive propaganda had told them and convinced them that Hitler just wanted to conquer some agricultural areas in the East of Germany in order to make Germany independent of oversea import... Hitler was a big sorcerer and he could convince millions and millions of people of his mission in Germany... The faith of the majority of the Germans in Hitler lasted until the last days of the war. I remember, one day, when I talked to the minister of ammunition, Albert Speer, who intended to kill Hitler in his underground bunker in Berlin, but abstained from doing that after he listened to the people in the streets..." Much more excellent content and in near fine condition.

    Dornberger (1895-1980) served as an artillery officer in the German Army in both World Wars and was a leader of Germany's V2 rocket program.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
