Nazi leader Adolf Hitler was addicted to crystal meth, a recently released American Military Intelligence dossier shows, according to the British Daily Mail.

The 47-page document reveals that Hitler, often described as a lifelong hypochondriac, took 74 different medications including crystal meth – believed to be a remedy for fatigue at the time.

The report claims that the Fuhrer took the drug before meeting with Italian dictator Benito Mussolini in the summer of 1943, when he "he ranted non-stop for two hours," according to the Daily Mail.

He also reportedly received nine injections of the drug during his final days in a Berlin bunker.

The American dossier was based on Hitler's medical records and interviews with doctors who treated him, including his personal physician Dr. Theodor Morell.

Despite revealing the Nazi leader's drug abuse, the military intelligence file debunks another medical claim about Hitler – that he lost a testicle during the Battle of the Somme.
