Adolf and peace
"In this hour I feel it to be my duty before my own conscience to appeal once more to reason and common sense in Britain. I see no reason why this war must go on. I am grieved to think of the sacrifices which it will claim. I would like to avert them."
- Adolf Hitler, July, 19th, 1940
Peace with Britain
“A European war could be the end of all our efforts even if we should win,
because the disappearance of the British Empire would be a misfortune
which could not be made up again” - Adolf Hitler
In 1933 Adolf announced his policy in regard to Britain. He stated that prominent communists such as Marx, Lenin and Stalin had repeatedly reiterated that before International communism could reach its final objectives, Britain and her Empire had to be destroyed.
Therefore Adolf said: "I am willing to help defend the British Empire by force if called upon."
. In 1936 Adolf once again tried to bring about an alliance through diplomatic channels. After the negotiations failed he said: "No sacrifice would have been too great in order to gain England's alliance. It would have meant renunciation of our colonies; and importance as a sea power; and refraining from interference with British industry by competition."
"No sacrifice would have been too great in order to gain England's alliance"
Adolf Hitler - 1936
The offer to help defend the Britush Empire was repeatedly made to Britain, in public and by diplomatic channels. Even after Britain had declared war against Germany the offer was repeated, in an attempt to bring peace and restore relations between Germany and Britain.
When Churchill was leaving London to meet Roosevelt for a conference in Quebec late in the summer of 1943, a reporter asked if they were planning to offer peace terms to Germany.
Churchill replied: “Heavens, no. They would accept immediately"

Adolf Hitler - 1933
German Prince Max Hohenlohe spoke in Switzerland with representatives of Vansittart, secretary of the British Foreign Office, returning to Germany to report to Göring that peace with England was possible, but only with Hitler and Ribbentrop removed from power. Göring replied that Hitler would agree to this. Britain never responded to the offer.
