    • Don Wildman: The first step on Adolph Hitler's march to infamy was a baptism by fire in the trenches of World War I, the hellish conflict that twisted him, scorched the Earth with monstrous new weapons and drove whole armies into the ground. From a mighty fortress facing down the biggest guns in the world to medieval quarries transformed into top secret bases, the underground became a sanctuary and a weapon.
