Today I’ve added a March 1945 essay by Goebbels titled “Look Confidently to the Helmsman!” The war situation was dreadful and Goebbels had nothing to say but empty words that Germany would somehow gain victory if only Germans kept fighting. It is not one of his better efforts — but then there was little he could say.
He does recycle his marathon runner image used a few weeks before in a major speech. Other nations were as exhausted as Germany, he claims. The war is like a marathon, and if only Germany can keep up the pace other nations will fall by the wayside.
