This chapter presents some concluding thoughts from the author. It argues that Hitler's power to make informed decisions was limited by the very system he created. Hitler trusted no one. He divulged his intentions warily, occasionally spreading disinformation to confuse his adversaries and subordinates alike. His distrustful nature spread like poison throughout his regime, and it infected the diplomats most of all.

Keywords: Hitler; information flow; foreign policy; Nazi Germany
