The German correspondents had blossomed out, during their Italian stay, in new-fangled brown journalists' uniforms, and they were conspicuous, to say the least. No one could overlook them. The rest of us were scattered among them, showing them up by contrast, in all their glory.

As the dictators' open car approached our balcony, Mussolini looked up and smiled an engaging welcome. Hitler didn't raise his eyes. Mussolini pulled him by the sleeve, pointed to our group and said something. No sale. Hitler wouldn't look up.

X: Der Führer in Person

DER FÜHRER took the binoculars from his eyes, turned to me and said, "Isn't that wonderful?" (Ist das nicht wunderbar?)

Adolf Hitler had been standing in an alcove of Nürnberg's famous castle, listening with visible emotion to the cries of "Heil Hitler," from the thousands milling around in the street leading
