Quotes by Albert Speer

Martin Bormann“Bormann as the secretary was the most powerful man, more powerful, I think, than Hitler. Because when the power was divided all those men who were in power had to go via him to Hitler. Except me, I had the direct access to Hitler.”The World at War, BD release FreemantleMedia International, 2016, disc 4
Martin Bormann“[...] what for others would have been discussions of weeks and weeks, for him was a decision of just a fraction of a minute. Of course, there was a change too, one can never say that a man is always the same person and Hitler changed a lot from 42 to 43. In 43 he was more and more convinced that doesn't need no more the advice of anybody and he made the decisions by himself without listening.”The World at War, BD release FreemantleMedia International, 2016, disc 4
