    Question Ian Fleming Anti-Semitism and Nazi Sympathizer

    Fleming may also have objected to Goldfinger’s modernist buildings, and the way that parts of Victorian London were being demolished to make way for his concrete tower blocks. Ernö Goldfinger got wind of Fleming’s insolence and obtained a proof copy of Goldfinger. The real and fictional Goldfingers were both Marxists with a taste for fast cars and there is a nasty whiff of anti-Semitism in Fleming’s portrayal of the super-rich crook. Goldfinger consulted his lawyers. Fleming threatened to change the name Goldfinger to Goldprick.

    Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, favoured appeasing Nazi Germany and dismissed those urging war with Hitler as “the slaughterhouse brigade” in a letter to The Times a year before the Second World War.

    Historians and biographers have hitherto overlooked the letter, published on September 28, 1938, as Britain waited to hear the outcome of Neville Chamberlain’s fateful meeting with Hitler in Munich. The letter was uncovered through the Times electronic archive, which has now been made accessible to the public.

    During the war Fleming became an officer in Naval Intelligence and a dedicated enemy of fascism, but in the immediate prewar period, like many Britons, he appears to have believed that a deal could still be done with Hitler to avert war.

    In the letter, Fleming argued that if Hitler’s territorial ambitions were limited to the aims he outlined in 1920 – uniting a greater Germany of German peoples, repealing the Versailles treaty and obtaining further territory for the German population – then Britain should step back from war.

    There will be no peace, no return of prosperity, and no happiness in Europe until England and France agree to the fulfilment of Herr Hitler’s stated programme in exchange for a binding disarmament pact,” he wrote.

    However, he added that if Germany intended to rearm for aggressive purposes – “as she did in 1914” – then Britain should prepare for war.

    “If . . . it is made clear that Germany already aims once again at world domination by aggression – then it will be time to organise this country on a war-time basis and announce to Germany that we shall fight at the first act of aggression.” Like many others at the time, Fleming still held out the hope “that Herr Hitler means what he says”, and that Nazi territorial ambitions could still be contained by diplomatic negotiation.

    I agree with most of the comments made by Fleming, but the paraphrase of the Fleming's remarks quoted above I can't agree with. Germany armed and built her formidable army and navy as she had to contend with hostile nations either on her borders or who dominated the seas around her. Germany's fears of encirclement by a revanchist France, Imperial Russia, and Gt Britain were not unfounded.

    Germany was only a young nation-state at the outbreak of the First World War and she was aggressive and militaristic only to the extent that she had to get tough or be walked all over by those that were inimical to her. Military weakness invites attack and Germany got strong to deter attack and intimidation by those countries ranged against her and in pursuit of her national interests as a young nation-state. More than a few non-German Europeans wanted to see the young German nation-state strangled in its cradle. And while the militarised Prussian state provided the pattern for Germany as a state, Germany was no different in this respect, that is, of arming and building her armed forces in pursuit of her national interests, than any other military power of that time.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_P._Kennedy,_Sr.

    ""Hitler... one of the most significant figures who ever lived"
    President J.F. Kennedy

    "Hitler will emerge from the hatred that surrounds him now as one of the most significant figures who ever lived...
    He had a mystery about him in the way that he lived and in the manner of his death that will live and grow after him.
    He had in him the stuff of which legends are made."
    John F. Kennedy,
    President of the
    United States of America

    "... Hitler is one of the greatest men. The old trust him, the young idolise him. It is the worship of a national hero who has served his country."
    - David Lloyd George,
    Prime Minister and Statesman,
    Great Britain.

    In fifteen years that have followed this resolve, he (Hitler) has succeeded in restoring Germany to the most powerful position in Europe, and not only has he restored the position of his country, but he has even, to a very great extent, reversed the results of the Great War ... whatever else may be thought about these exploits they are certainly among the most remarkable in the whole history of the world."
    Winston Churchill,
    Prime Minister and Statesman,
    Great Britain.

    "Hitler was a reformer of the highest rank, and his historical fate was to be in a time of unexampled brutality, of which he was finally a victim"
    Knut Hamsun,
    Norwegian recipient of the
    Nobel Prize in Literature.

    Lord Hartley Shawcross
    "I believe now that Hitler and the German people did not want war"


    "I believe in the Holy German people inside and outside the German frontiers. I believe in Adolf Hitler, who by the grace of God, was sent to give the German people faith in themselves once more."
    Rudolf Hess
    Deputy leader of the NSDAP


    "I am not worthy to speak aloud of Adolf Hitler, and his
    life and work do not invite sentimental words.
    "He was a warrior for mankind and a herald of the gospel
    of justice for all nations. He was a reformative figure of the
    highest rank, and it was his historic fate that he had to work
    in a time of unprecedented baseness, which in the end brought him down.
    "Thus, I suppose, must the ordinary West European look
    upon Adolf Hitler. And we, his close followers, now bow
    our heads before his mortal shroud."
    — Norwegian writer and Nobel Prize-winner, Knut Hamsun,
    upon the death of Adolf Hitler, Aftenposten, 1 May 1945
