Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels wrote in his diary on January 20th 1939:
“Wir müssen versuchen, die ganze Welt gegen die feigen Londoner Kriegstreiber mobil zu machen”.
“We have to try to mobilize the whole world against the cowardly warmongers in London”.
It seems a bit strange that he would write something like this in private, but the term “English warmongers” was a staple of Nazi propaganda even before World war II, so it might have been out of force of habit. He also wasn’t being ironic, the Nazis would have preferred taking over Europe without a fight, of course.
