A secret report, previously unknown to historians, has given readers insight regarding the mental state of Adolf Hitler. According to the report, which was published in the British Guardian Newspaper on Friday, in 1942, British intelligence officers were tracking Adolf Hitler's "messiah complex" and his belief that he was leading a crusade against Jewish people. The analysis of Hitler's mental state, was uncovered by a Cambridge University researcher, Scott Anthony. He found a report commissioned by the social scientist Mark Abrams, who worked in the psychological warfare division of the allied expeditionary force during the Second World War. At the time that it was written, the tide was starting to turn against Germany. The report's author recognized that faced with external failure, the Nazi leader was focusing on a perceived "enemy within" instead -- namely the Jews. The paper notes an extension of the "Jew phobia" and says that Hitler now saw them not just as a threat to Germany, but as a "universal diabolical agency."
