Message from Adolf Hitler to Erich Raeder
Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces.
The war against merchant shipping and all other measures for attacking the economic installations, resources and trade connections of the enemy nations are to be directed uniformly by the O.K.W. according to my orders. The Chief of Staff O.K.W. will appoint a staff for the comprehensive treatment of the problems arising therefrom and for preparations of my decisions. The Deputy for the Four Years' Plan, the Foreign Minister, the Deputy for the German Economy, and the Commanders-in-Chief of the branches of the Armed Forces will be represented on this Staff. The Chief of Staff O.K.W. will issue the necessary orders for carrying out these plans.
(Signed) ADOLF HITLER. ww2dbase
