most important work is Die Grundlagen des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts (The Foundations of the Nineteenth Century), 1899. The book's central idea is that Western civilization's moral, cultural, scientific and technological superiority comes largely from the positive influence of the Germanic race (Slavs and Celts included) on the progress of history down the ages:„Certain anthropologists would fain teach us that all races are equally gifted; we point to history and answer: that is a lie! The races of mankind are markedly different in the nature and also in the extent of their gifts, and the Germanic races belong to the most highly gifted group, the group usually termed Aryan. Is this human family united and uniform by bonds of blood? Do these stems really all spring from the same root? I do not know and I do not much care...“
Opponents of the Germanic race would be the Roman Catholic Church („the shield- and armour-bearer of all Anti-Germanic movements“ (31)), Jewry, the Jesuit Order and other obscure forces, who fought and still fight a racial war, „the war still waged among us between those elements that advance and those that retard culture“ (12). Although the book was received with reservation (to say the least) by the Church and in Jewish circles, it became a best-seller in Germany, was translated into English and French, and had an important influence on its contemporaries. In his review of The Foundations George Bernard Shaw wrote:

„It is a masterpiece of really scientific history. It does not make confusion, it clears it away. He is a great generalizer of thought, as distinguished from the crowd of our mere specialists. It is certain to stir up thought. Whoever has not read it will be rather out of it in political and sociological discussions for some time to come.“
And President Theodore Roosevelt, although not an admirer of XXXXXXXXXX work, wrote:

„... a man who can write such a really beautiful and solemn appreciation of true Christianity, of true acceptance of Christ's teachings and personality, as Mr. XXXXXXXXX has done, [...] represents an influence to be reckoned with and seriously to be taken into account.“

and this will be my final quote on this British born, rear admiral son, father in law was richard wagner, and considered a prophet for his racial writings by the Nazi party...
The Third Reich
Many argue that XXXXXXXXX work influenced Adolf Hitler, although the precise links are unclear. The two men did meet in Bayreuth on September 30th, 1923, on a so-called „German day“. XXXXXXXXXX, who was by now elderly, ill and embittered, regarded Hitler as Germany's future saviour, and after this meeting he wrote to Hitler: „In no way do you resemble the descriptions depicting you as a fanatic. I even believe that you are the absolute opposite of a fanatic. [...] The fanatic wants to persuade people, you want to convince them, and to convince only.“ (8)

This letter meant a success for Hitler, because the famous writer's approval would certainly attract new members to his nascent political movement (22). After staging an unsuccessful coup that began in a beer-hall, Hitler was imprisoned in Landsberg, where he wrote his political manifesto, Mein Kampf. Unfortunately, Hitler's letters from Landsberg to XXXXXXXXX are now lost, and no one knows what Hitler told his fellow-author about writing the book. Mein Kampf refers just once to XXXXXXXX:

Commando your thread, you guessed Chamberlain, and the correct name or given was Houston Stewart chamberlain...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Houston_Stewart_Chamberlain
although their are better sources on his life, the majority of the info is valid..and rather Ironic the son of a former British rear Admiral was one of the founders of Third Reich, his recognition of Hitler one day being a leader or guiding Germany to greatness prior to the beer hall putsch in nov of 1923...and being named what would be a prophet to nazi ideals on racial purity is kinda bizarre....

you question commando...

Perhaps it is time to finish the book Das Reich which has been sitting on my shelf for almost 6 months now.
