Adolf Hitler — the German dictator, who instigated World War II — allegedly had a secret addiction to crystal meth.

According to the Daily Mail, U.S. military intelligence has compiled a 47-page wartime dossier containing information that suggests Hitler was a hypochondriac and took 74 different kinds of medication and pills, including methamphetamine.

Intelligence suggests Hitler took crystal meth before a meeting with Mussolini in 1943, and he had nine injections of Vitamultin, a drug which contained methamphetamine, during the final days in his bunker.

According to the report, Hitler also was given intravenous injections of methamphetamine from 1942 until his death in 1945 by his personal physician Theodor Morell, known by Nazis as the "Reichsmaster of injections."

In an interview for the National Geographic Channel's Nazi Underworld, psychiatrist Professor Nassir Ghaemi said, "It's not whether Hitler was an amphetamine addict or not – it's that Hitler had bipolar disorder and amphetamines made it worse.

"That is the issue. That has never been described before and that would explain a lot why Hitler changed in the late 1930s and the 1940s."
