Sample text

It had a significant impact on his standing within the German diplomatic corps and on the development of his political ideas. The experience he gained in Scandinavia was to play a crucial role in his later thinking, particularly during the war and coupled with the impressions he acquired in Yugoslavia and Italy between 1930 and 1938. Along with Germany's 'mission' in south east Europe, he was to regard the 'organisation' of the Baltic Sea area as the most important task facing German great power politics.

3s In this respect, the experiences of the later Weimar Republic and the 'Third Reich' were to validate his worst fears. In the Prussian Administration 23 The 'revolution' and subsequent events had confirmed Hassell in his scepticism about the value of a complete parliamentarisation of Germany. Now and in the future, self-administration and a professional civil service must therefore act as bulwarks against the more or less arbitrary rule of changing party majorities. 36 The 'young conservative' shared this fear of uncontrollable party or parliamentary rule with many of his contemporaries, including large numbers with whom he had little else in common.

The ambassador would thus eventually be forced to define his own attitude to the new rulers, although this cannot be definitively ascertained in the period surrounding the seizure of power. 3 Yet it is quite clear that there was a partial agreement on foreign policy ideas between many conservatives and National Socialists, at least while the Nazis continued to follow those outlines of Weimar revisionism supported by most Germans. Furthermore, in his public statements Hitler was careful to present his policy in this light.
