  1. Amazing. The man was such an ascetic I'm surprised he'd have anything to do with wine.

    Shirer's "Rise and Fall" describes not only his austere vegetarianism, but in early days -- before he was in power -- correspondence in which he mentioned neither smoking nor drinking (in a time and place when most adult men did both), with no evidence to contradict the claim. On the other hand, he did apparently like seeing his picture worshipped.
