Comments: A tremor of intent

I think you're exactly right about Hitler, eschatology & the Holocaust. In Michael Burleigh's The Third Reich he discusses the historiographical tradition stretching back to Eric Voegelin (who fled Germany in '38 & taught at LSU) of Political Religions. As Burleigh states (p.13) [Nazism was] "politics as a biological mission, but conceived in a religious way."
