    Did Hitler have any admiration for any of these guys or did he hate them? I have seen in documentaries that he wasn't keen on the Russian political system so i'm sure he didn't think much of Stalin, but what about the other two?

    He didn't want to go to war with Churchill as I understood it. He felt England was a civil, Nationalist country and good neighbor. There is support to believe he was going after the Bolsheviks in Russia.

    But, I think @Sketch 's post said it best.

    Alleged quote about Stalin by Hitler:

    Stalin is one of the most extraordinary figures in world history. He began as a small clerk, and he has never stopped being a clerk. Stalin owes nothing to rhetoric. He governs from his office, thanks to a bureaucracy that obeys his every nod and gesture. It's striking that Russian propaganda, in the criticisms it makes of us, always holds itself within certain limits. Stalin, that cunning Caucasian, is apparently quite ready to abandon European Russia, if he thinks that a failure to solve her problems would cause him to lose everything. Let nobody think Stalin might reconquer Europe from the Urals! It is as if I were installed in Slovakia, and could set out from there to reconquer the Reich. This is the catastrophe that will cause the loss of the Soviet Empire.

    Some random quotes on Churchill/Roosevelt:

    When Churchill and Roosevelt state that they want to build up a new social order, later on, it is like a hairdresser with a bald head recommending an unfortunate hair-restorer. These men, who live in the most socially backward states, have misery and distress enough in their own countries to occupy themselves with the distribution of foodstuffs…. We are allied with strong peoples, who in the same need are faced with the same enemies. The American President and his Plutocratic clique have mocked us as the Have-nots-that is true, but the Have-nots will see to it that they are not robbed of the little they have.

    For over five years this man has been chasing around Europe like a madman in search of something he could set on fire. Unfortunately he again and again finds hirelings who open the gates of their country to this international incendiary.

    I have sympathy for Mr. Roosevelt, because he marches straight toward his objectives over Congress, lobbies and bureaucracy." Hitler went on to note that he was the sole leader in Europe who expressed "understanding of the methods and motives of President Roosevelt.
    • [5] New York Times 1934, as quoted from: Adolf Hitler: The Definitive Biography (1976) John Toland
    National-Socialism came to power in Germany in the same year as Roosevelt was elected President. . . Roosevelt comes from a rich family and belongs to the class whose path is smoothed in the Democracies. I am only the child of a small, poor family and had to fight my way by work and industry. When the Great War came, Roosevelt occupied a position where he got to know only its pleasant consequences, enjoyed by those who do business while others bleed. . . I shared the fate of millions, and Franklin Roosevelt only the fate of the so-called Upper Ten Thousand. . . he made profits out of the inflation, out of the misery of others, while I, together with many hundreds of thousands more, lay in hospital.

    He admired all 3. All three had traits that he wanted to emulate. He was also a fan of American Westerns and Walt Disney cartoons. Disney was involved in the creation of short movies to support the American war effort.

    If I am not mistaken, he most respected Churchill of the three, which is understandable since Churchill was by far the dumbest of least effectual of the three and he most underestimated and denigrated FDR, thinking him but a show dog for his country's legislature (which he was compared to the autocratic Hitler, but which is funny considering FDR was the most singularly effectual and near-autocratic president in American history).

    I reckon he hated Churchill the most. Can't find any statement where he isn't crapping all over the guy.

    Believe or not, Hitler fancied himself as somewhat of an anti-colonialist.

    He seemed to express admiration towards FDR due to his autocratic methods.

    They're pen pals. Don't quote me on that though.

    I'm actually curious if people in Russia and China get annoyed that Hitler is viewed as the worst person ever when they had Stalin and Mao.

    Saying Hitler isn't even the worst person in the last 100 years would probably make you anti-Semitic.
    Unless you're a female Muslim Democrat.

    Hitler was probably down with anyone who would help see the Fourth Reich come to fruition. But alas, like his penis, Hitler's plan did not function well, despite many painful alterations.

    Lol. I love Norm MacDonald.
    Hitler was a hero because he killed Hitler.

    I also wonder if people in Japan view Truman as worse than Hitler.

    We kind of take for granted that "everyone" thinks Hitler is the worst person ever.
