YMMV / Adolf Hitler: My Part in His Downfall

  • Values Dissonance/ Fridge Horror: "The girl, still in a sexual coma, was given Devine's rifle to hold while he terminated her contract." There's really only one way of reading what it means in context. Might have been funny for some in the mid-seventies.
    • Much of the memoirs suffer from severe Values Dissonance in the 21st century, with the generally obnoxious and laddish behaviour the lads get up to, but then it was WW2 and they were very young. In the above example, there is in fact more than one way to read the passage: if the girl had literally been in a coma, she would not have been able to hold a rifle.
