Exit, Impossible?

Exit, Impossible?

“Even though he still played at being master of the situation and his circle did its best to abet him in his illusions, elements of the truth forced themselves upon his consciousness. At such moments, he would go back to his old litany that he had become a politician against his will, that basically he was an architect but that he had been out of luck … he had only one remaining wish, he would say, in one of those bursts of self-pity which became more and more frequent these days.  “As soon as possible I want to hang the field-gray jacket on its nail again.”

 Quotation from Speer’s memoir, Inside The Third Reich
