“Chancellor Adolf Hitler is one of the greatest of the many great men I have ever met,” declared David Lloyd George in an interview with the News-Chronicle.

The wartime British Prime Minister, who saw Hitler twice on a recent trip to Germany, said that “I have never seen a happier people than the Germans,” adding that the Nazi system is “a great achievement.” He expressed himself as impressed by the “universal adoration” of Hitler throughout the Reich.
