FRIDAY, JANUARY SI,; 1<H7 Documents Bare Fuehrer's Errors Hitler Had Expected England to Be Neutral •During Russian Foray WASHINGTON, Jan. 31. (UPl — Adolf Hitler gambled right up to llie deadline that Britain would're- main neutral or fight on Germany's .side, captured Nani documents revealed today. As late as Sept. 1, 1939—the day P Hitler's legions invaded Poland— the fuehrer insisted thai Engl would not enter llie war. Two days Inter Britain and Prance were fighting Germany. - v • As a result, Germany never was prepared for a naval war and the "war was in one sense lost before il began," said one of the Nar.i documents made public by the Navy." . At one lime—the documents didn't say when—Hitler even was ".striving for a political agreement with KIIK- land so he could concentrate bi Russia which he considered "the arch enemy of Germany and En rope." These and oilier disclosures were contained in three sets of caplui't'd documents: DlM-tlllz Bared Secrets One of the mosl revealing of them was written by Grand Adm. Karl Doenitz. last commander of the Nazi navy and the man who became the fuehrer briefly after Hitler's reported suicide in the last days of the .war. The documents also revealed that: 1—'Hitler, furious because his surface ships refused to light, ordered his battleships and cruisers scrapped in 1943 and tricked the Allies with n skeleton surface fleet of destroyers from then until the end of the war.

Few U-Boals Available 5—When the United States entered the war Dec. 11, 1941. the Germans were able to send only six U-boats to American waters for immediate operation. G—The Germans were pre-fabricating scattered areas over, llie Heich in an attempt to escape heavy. .Allied, bombings. Hitler's order to scrap all''surface units of the Nazi fleet larger than destroyers was issued Jan. 1, 1943, after the Nazi admirals failed to deliver a promised great naval victory. ""This means the .passing- of the high seas fleet," Hitler'raged. "It is my irrevocable decision to do away with these useless sliius."
