'A master-race must come to birth/ To lord it over all the earth/ And such a race can only be/ The race which generated me.' Published in February 1940, five months after the outbreak of war, this verse satire of Mein Kampf was characteristic of the British response to Nazi aggression: ridicule. In his own defence Patterson wrote that Hitler's 'book ... has neither rhyme nor reason, while my abridgement undoubtedly has rhyme'. With drawings by the inimitable W Heath Robinson.
