i think you cannot disagree with that. he managed to get people to do the most horrendous things.

Bizarrely enough, Bernie Eccleston's comments about Hitler are flat wrong (as well as grossly offensive) - Hitler was an incredibly inefficient leader (and personally a very lazy man), who deliberately fostered competition and duplication of effort throughout the government. The only thing he was good at was being a charismatic figurehead, specifically one who could make people feel that viciousness & brutality were noble.
