Personal Quote:

[Col. Gen. Alfred Jodl] and I were both present that night a--the only time during the war--[Adolf Hitler] came bursting in to us with the telegram in his hand. I gained the impression that the Führer felt that the war between Japan and America had suddenly relieved him of a nightmare burden; it certainly brought us some relief from the consequences of America's undeclared state of war with us.
