This certainly doesn't fit with what I know of Hitler.

Hitler wrote a book called "Mein Kampf", which translates as "My Battle"
or "My Struggle"

I have a few quotations from it.

Only in the steady and constant application of force lies the very
first prerequisite for success. This persistence, however, can always
and only arise from a definite spiritual conviction. Any violence
which does not spring from a firm, spiritual base, will be wavering
and uncertain. -- Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)(My Struggle)

"Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will
of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am
fighting for the work of the Lord." -- Adolph Hitler (Mein Kampf)
(My Struggle)

The greatness of every mighty organization embodying an idea in this
world lies in the religious fanaticism and intolerance with which,
fanatically convinced of its own right, it intolerantly imposes its
will against all others. -- Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)(My Struggle)

The great masses of people do not consist of philosophers; precisely
for the masses, faith is often the sole foundation of a moral attitude.
The various substitutes have not proved so successful from the
standpoint of results that they could be regarded as a useful
replacement for previous religious creeds. But if religious doctrine
and faith are really to embrace the broad masses, the unconditional
authority of the content of this faith is the foundation of all
efficacy. -- Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)(My Struggle)

Now certainly one can argue that Hitler *used* Christainity to
manipulate the crowds, or that he "wasn't a *real* Christian", but you
have to wonder then just what a "real Christian" is.

After all, Jesus can not to bring peace, but a sword. (ref?)
(see also Luke 12:49)
