Hitler[edit]

Info on the support for Hitler from this story from the Independent, March 1, 2005: Rothermere urged Hitler to invade Romania (http://news.independent.co.uk/uk/this_britain/story.jsp?story=615718) Hotlorp 02:40, 4 Mar 2005 (UTC) Updating the dead link above with one that works as of 19 Dec 2019 https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/this-britain/rothermere-urged-hitler-to-invade-romania-485296.html

Needs more[edit]

This entry is a bit thin: more is needed on his influence and the publications he founded and developed --Cunningham (talk) 11:48, 24 January 2008 (UTC)


Questionable dates[edit]

Does anyone find it curious that Rothermere is listed as "Chancellor of Memorial University of Newfoundland 1952-1961" though he died in 1940?--Death Bredon (talk) 14:39, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Death[edit]

What were the circumstances of his death? Drutt (talk) 10:10, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Yes, and it says he died in Bermuda. How was he there, when Britain was at war? Health? Advice to make himself scarce? 2.31.36.101 (talk) 10:39, 30 September 2015 (UTC)


[1] LORD ROTHERMERE DEAD IN BERMUDA; Noted British Publisher Had Gone There to Rest After Exhausting War Mission OWNED LONDON DAILY MAIL Early Advocate of Strong Air Force Backed Appeasement Policy Before Hostilities seems clear. He had started off backing appeasement, then became a backer of the war, and acted as an emissary to Canada and the US. Collect (talk) 16:47, 30 September 2015 (UTC) .

Hurrah for the Blackshirts[edit]

Is the full text of this much cited, but little read, article available online anywhere? Drutt (talk) 10:43, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

If he died in 1940[edit]

how was he Chancellor of Memorial from 1952? CaptainCanada (talk) 17:42, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Parents?[edit]

Odd that neither the Rothermere article nor the Northcliffe article mentions who their parents were. 86.145.152.144 (talk) 21:42, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

Contradiction[edit]

If he was describing Hitler’s work as ‘great and superhuman’ in 1939, why did he publish a book the same year, titled ‘My Fight to Rearm Britain’? Perhaps someone could find a copy of the book and make some sense of his conflicting views. Valetude (talk) 13:21, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
