Well, if the historychannel says so, it's got to be true!

I wouldn't trust anything the History Channel says without further verification.

Dr. Gerhard L. Weinberg was working in the repository of captured German records in Alexandria, Virginia, when in 1958 he found a manuscript that had been dictated, by Adolf Hitler. Since publishing Mein Kampf in 1925 and 1926, Hitler had not dealt with foreign policy issues to any extent. In 1928 he decided to write a new book to address a number of questions tied to events that were taking place at the time especially the elections to the Reichstag where the Nazi party had a mere 12 seats out of 410. However the main idea behind the new book was to provide answers to a number of foreign policy issues. It is here that the idea of an alliance between Germany and Italy is clearly enunciated and Mussolini is praised. Of course, the entire text is riddled with the familiar racial language that was Hitler’s particular trademark, as well as his form of extreme Social Darwinism and insistence of the need for “living space” and the need to “Germanize” the new space in the East, which meant in any case annihilating the Jews and others located there.

The new contribution offered here was the much broader, “open” vision Hitler gave of his foreign policy views and the fact that all of them were oriented toward war and aggression. He only conceived foreign policy and relations with other countries in those terms and stated for example that his goal was not to revise the Treaty of Versailles at all since he wanted to acquire much more space for Germany than the borders of 1914!

Finally the most startling vision is the terrifying future Hitler offered, one of continuous warfare, with new wars being carried out in a kind of chain-reaction until the final inevitable clash with the United States. These statements, wrapped in the typical rhetoric and with many references to people and events that belong to those times, and masterfully explained by Dr. Weinberg’s annotations, makes this one of the essential documents, unavailable until now, for a deeper understanding of the Nazi period and his long list of horrors.

I'm uncertain if it's based on fact or not.
