James Larratt Battersby

James (Jim) Larratt Battersby (February 5, 1907[1]–September 14-29, 1955[2]) is the author of The Holy Book of Adolf Hitler. He was a British fascist who was interned June 1940 during the war. Three years later he was released from interment and developed a religious mania believing Hitler to be Christ returned.[3]

In 1947, he founded The League of Christian Reformers and published a magazine called Kingdom Herald. In addition to The Holy Book of Adolf Hitler he published And The Bishop Said Amen.

Battersby is said to have committed suicide in 1955 by jumping into the paddles of the Mersey ferry. On him a suicide note read, “Though the sacrifice of the Aryan martyr the world victory is assured. Heil Hitler.”[4]
