Abstract: When, in the 1930's, the shadow of Adolph Hitler fell across the East-Central European “shatter belt," and a radical National Socialism rose up to do battle with its neighbors, these phenomena were no drastic new departure in German development. If one could only have read the signs aright, the seeds lay deeply embedded in the history of Germany and of Europe, in one sense being as old as the struggle between Teuton and Slav, and in another sense as new as integral nationalism. This dynamic expansionism was European nationalism reaching its logical but demonic conclusion--proud, total, brutal --the evolution of a master race demanding a master destiny, a place in the sun, a Lebensraum.
