**...presented Hitler with his Iron Cross First Class was a Jew.**  Payne reports (113) that Hitler was awarded "the Cross" because he was "ordered" to carry out the mission to notify artillery, with a "promise" from Lieutenant Hugo Gutmann that Hitler would receive an Iron Cross first class if he succeeded. This writer cannot believe any German officer would order and/or make such a promise. The rumor appears to have risen during the NAZI years to show that "Semitic" officers were willing to risk "Aryan" lives in futile missions, and was given validity because Hitler considered Gutmann to be a "coward." [Hitler Secret Conversations 137] However, Hitler's dislike for Gutmann, like his comrades, had nothing to do with anti-Semitism. [Toland fn 536]
