22nd June 1941
Reports are coming in of attacks on Mother Russia from as far north as Petsamo to as far south as Lvov. What trickery is this? Who is behind this attempt to sour relations between myself and The Fuhrer?
The Germans and Russians - why, we are friends, our two peoples have an understanding, we share the same peace loving ideals, we both like propaganda posters featuring closely shaved men with shiny biceps, carrying farming equipment and big busted woman suckling babies at their breast.
The Germans - they are our friends, they would not attack us? I am being asked left, right and centre for permission to attack, for permission to bomb enemy territory. This is madness.
But Russia need not worry. I, of course, take complete control of the situation. I order all units to remain in their barracks, all arms are to be kept under lock and key. No one is to fire on anybody. All planes are grounded. The plotters will not trick me, and in a couple of days when this misunderstanding has been resolved, we will all laugh about this - and I will then shoot the people responsible.
