This is a true historic fact, Hiltler’s secret weapon was poisonous gas he had a chronic fart problem.
To the wartime world, he was nothing less than a monster. In private, it seems, Adolf Hitler was equally unappealing.
According to an aide, the German dictator had ‘shocking’ table manners, constantly bit his nails and suffered from a ‘digestive disorder’ that may have resulted in severe flatulence.
The secret documents also reveal that he believed official Nazi propaganda about himself and thought ‘he was the greatest military genius of all time’.
The Fuhrer’s daily routine and ‘uncouth’ behaviour were revealed in notes taken from a captured high-ranking Nazi and handed to a British agent.
The typed four-page profile is dated May 1945 – the month Hitler died – and states on the front: ‘This summary must be destroyed within 48 hours.’
Despite the instructions, the papers were retained by the agent and returned to England.
They have surfaced after 60 years following a recent house clearance and are expected to raise more than £1,000 at auction.
The unidentified German soldier revealed he dined with Hitler about 30 times and kept his diary in the bunker where the Fuhrer saw out the last few weeks of the Second World War.
He wrote: ‘Hitler eats rapidly, mechanically; for him food is merely an indispensable means of subsistence.
‘He does not smoke and it is strictly forbidden to smoke in his presence as he seems to be very susceptible to laryngitis.
‘He talks in a mellow baritone, without that raucous, unpleasant stridency of his public speeches.
‘At the table and in his speech he shows many facets of rather uncouth behaviour.
‘He abstractedly bites his fingernails, he runs his index finger back and forth under his nose, and his table manners are little short of shocking.’
The Nazi said Hitler would retire to his private rooms late at night where he would drink ‘health tea’ and listen to his phonograph.
He added: ‘Hitler ate prodigious amounts of cake (this cake eating was responsible for a slight digestive disorder and the addition of a bay window to his already not too fortunate figure).
‘Quite often he would retire into this privacy with women whom he esteemed very much (during later years particularly with a Miss Eva Braun whose relationship to Hitler is quite unknown).
‘It is not believed that in these sessions with women Hitler’s attitude intensified to any more than a platonic relationship.’
He continued: ‘(The rumours about his homosexuality and other abnormal obsessions were rumours and nothing more. If there was any such streak in him, it was a touch of passive masochism in his relationship with women.)’
Talking about Hitler’s delusions, the source states that Goebbels’ techniques were so effective that ‘Hitler himself became very susceptible to this propaganda.
‘He then actually started believing that he was a man of exceptional ability in the science of warfare.’
Auctioneer Richard Westwood-Brookes, who is selling the document next month, said: ‘It is a highly important document which has clearly survived through extraordinary circumstances.
‘The statement provides a vivid personal description of Hitler in his last days and his behaviour in the bunker.
‘It mentions a digestive disorder which could be a reference to his flatulence, but denies the rumours that Hitler was homosexual.
‘This remarkable document is potentially unique, given the requirement that it should have been destroyed within hours of receipt.’
Terry Charman, senior historian at the Imperial War Museum said: ‘Hitler’s problem with flatulence has been well documented and was even mentioned in his doctor’s diaries.
