i read once that general ludendorff, the ww1 german army commander, wanted to replace the christian religion in germany with the worship of nordic gods. this idea was apparently formed after ww1 , when germany was flat on its back, and the nation's morale at an all time low.(well, at least lowest until 1945...)

he tried to convince hitler and the nazis, apparently without success.

i actually read that Hitler was not nearly so involved in the occult as some claimed. it was more the realm of ss leader Himmler.
