This he seemed to do in his speeches, which started nervously and awkwardly and then, perhaps through a form of self-hypnosis, turned to powerful tirades. Instead of his being afraid of them, they should be afraid of him." Langer suggests that this thinking could account in part outlined in an "afterword" to th« new book. In the afterword, Dr. Robert G. L. Waite, a Williams College historian, wrote that Langer's study "gave me insights into that strange and twisted personality that no historian using traditional methods had been able to give." "And in Hitler's case," he wrote, "knowing the personality is of the very essence, for the! political system he established other such analysis of a public was dependent ultimately upon the power of his person, efficacy of his charisma. He was Nazism." The author of the study, Langer, is now 73 years old, retired the II. He recalled suggesting a figure was made in World War similar study of Stalin, but Gen. William J.

Langer said that his study probably "came too late" to have any effect on the conduct for Hitler's hold on the Germans of the ISSC's. They, too, felt wea* and vulnerable, from the defea of World War I and the ensuinf inflation. Hitler's anti-Semitism, Lange According to Langer the said '. coulcl be explained in par strong Hitler, the Fuehrer personality, "is a grossly exaggerated and distorted conception of by his inner struggle.

Langer said, could account for his many fears and anxieties--his nightmares and insomnia, a fear of cancer and of gaining weight, his mistrust of nearly everyone around him. and his apparently masochistic relations with women. Of the struggle between the two Hitlers, which probably began long before Hitler came to power, Langer wrote: "We may assume that in order to quiet his fears, he some- jtimes imagined himself as a | person who far surpassed his enemies in all the 'virile' qualities. Under these circumstances, he could conquer his enemies ersion" Langer wrote and JJS """" maS ° Chist he HITLER Baby HITLER World War I with his mother because she submitted so willingly to the hated father. In any event, Langer wrote, Hitler somehow lost his respecl for the female sex, which presumably accounted for his rather loveless life. He attempted, in propaganda, to portray this characteristic as a great virtue, insisting that Germany was his only bride. Summarizing Hitler's sex life. Langer said: "It is probably true that he is impotent, but he is certainly not iiomosexual in the ordinary sense of the term. His perversion has quite a different na- ,ure, which few have guessed. It s an extreme form of masoch- sm in which the individual derives sexual gratification from the act of having a woman urinate or defecate on him." j Langer also speculated that; iitler, from childhood, had an nordinate fear of genital injury. When Soviet doctors performed an autopsy on Hitler's body, hey reported: j "The left, testicle could not be ound either in the scrotum on on the spermatic cord inside the inguinal canal, nor in the small jelvis."
