Hitler was one of the greatest leaders of his time. The characteristics he demonstrated through his time of being chancellor were phenomenal. His tactics for control, his determination, and how he could manipulate all went into account when expressing how influential and prominent of a leader Hitler really was. Hitler was a man that liked total control over a situation, and to have no one else besides himself to have an option of becoming omnipotent. To do that he came up with one of his plans to ensure that only he had superior authority. “... the Nazis ran the armed services as they ran the government, by the principle of divide and rule. Hitler deliberately mixed the lines of authority so that no one ever knew precisely who was in command of
Hitler served in the German Army during the First World War and felt very passionate towards the well-being of Germany. Therefore, when Germany had decided to surrender at the end of The First World War, Hitler became upset and did not agree and “the end of the war was a personally emotional disaster for Hitler as well. It brought threat of demobilization [and] tearing him from his only community in which he had ever felt at home.” This showed how because Hitler had joined the war he felt that he had a family there that he did not want to let down by losing the war. This then prompted him to start The Second World War. “Hitler was convinced that Germany ought to be a supremely powerful nation and therefore could not believe that losing the war could be Germany’s fault.” This means that because of his involvement in the War he became “convinced that Germany ought to be [supreme]”. Then, since Hitler gained a leadership role in The Second World War, he could apply the tactics and strategy he learned during his time and he could use his power to get back at those he felt had wronged Germany before and during the First World War, the Jews. “Hitler was named Chancellor of Germany in 1933” and using this power, which he could have only obtained by being in the Second World War, Hitler set up his Concentration camps in strategically, adding to his “final
Weinberg does agree that Hitler would of course preferred to avoid a conflict with Western powers, but he realized that this was something he would inevitability have to face. Hitler’s Chief German biographer, Joachim Fest, argues that Hitler’s growing sense of mortality was what convinced him that it was time to increase aggression. Tooze that not much has changed regarding the positions on this topic since the 1980’s, but offers the probability of some alterations as a result of new archival evidence. This evidence, Tooze argues, forces historians to further explore Hitler’s war against the his Jewish enemies who he blamed for Germany’s economic crisis. He explains that Hitler viewed Germany's problem through the lens of his racial ideology and this made war inevitable for him. Tooze does conclude that Hitler he probably wished to avoid a big war with Britain and France until the early 1940’s, but this become impossible with the events that had unfolded by early 1939. He further argues that Hitler’s anti-Semitic views and his belief in the Jewish responsibility of Germany’s combined with Western democracies aligning with each other propelled Hitler to take action that would lead to the Second
Is their ambition the reason of their downfall? Macbeth and Hitler are very similar characters because they both had similar rises of power. They were both murderers and they were both ambitious. Macbeth in the beginning of the play was originally a good man, a model solider who was loyal to his king. He was a described brave and true gentleman. Hitler had similar statues, he was labelled a tyrant, and he had a good reputation as a political figure. Hitler only wanted the best for Germany. Hitler and Macbeth appeared to be good in the beginning but their temptation for power has resulted of their downfall.
Adolf Hitler was a German politician who was the leader of the Nazi party, rose to power for many reasons. The economical, social, and political standpoints in Germany at the time were a disaster. He promised German people he would bring back the pride in their the country. After World War I the economic situation was abhorrent. The war damaged the economy, and had gone into hyperinflation, which wiped out citizens savings quickly. The long term hatred and deep anger about World War I and the Treaty of Versailles created an underlying bitterness, which made him get more supporters. Another main factor was his influential way of speaking. One way Germany got popular with the crowd was because of Hitler’s speaking ability and most importantly,
The famous manual “The Prince” by Machiavelli is still to this day the main resource that explains and gives advice on how to be a good politician. In 26 chapters it holds powerful rules that Machiavelli believed were key points that one must follow to become a successful politician. Machiavelli was a politician, historian, philosopher, humanist, and writer and lived in Florence during the Renaissance and changed the world with his political philosophies. Like Machiavelli, Adolf Hitler was also a powerful politician and the chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945. He was also the dictator of Nazi Germany from 1939 to 1945. Machiavelli and Hitler can be compared through their honesty, social beliefs, and justice system.
Nazism significantly impacted the propaganda, terror and repression in a time of the abolition of the Weimar and rising of Hitler. The German civilization was greatly affected German people from 1933-1939 making the ideology of Nazism change most facets of life. The underlying nature of the anti semitic and nationalist theme amongst the media was a supplement to a large portions of society 's initial views. By the 30th of January 1933, Hitler had been appointed Chancellor. The intentions to commit to the ‘Final Solution’ was obvious when he used propaganda, terror and repression in order to influence and persuade his actions, therefore justifying it to himself and others he took authority over.
Throughout history, the idea of having the most power has been the ultimate goal. Power can benefit those who have it and those around it if it doesn't get out of hand. But, power becomes too much when it becomes destructive.
What path should the allied powers have gone down in order to create a world peace? Would the world consist of less poverty? How would world history and economy be different from how it is today? Nations opposing Adolf Hitler should have used collective security to potentially stop a world war. Three reasons why opposing nations should have used collective security is because if Hitler were appeased, then he would continue to imperialise other nations. Secondly, collective security would have been used to stop the growth of power of Adolf Hitler, especially the size of his empire. Lastly, a civil revolution could be created inside of Hitler 's central source of power, Germany, only if force was taken.
Hitler involved himself in The First World War and was very passionate about his Love for Germany and its purity. Hitler did not want to see Germany lose. Then because of this, after The First World War Hitler had become outraged by Germany surrendering and he desperately wanted a different ending. Therefore, Hitler was the leading cause in the making of The Second World War. The three most important aspects that helped Hitler win over the German people and start The Second World War was The Treaty of Versailles, the economic struggle of Germany, and his own family struggles.
The Treaty of Versailles left Germany in shambles, humiliated and broken, with an unstable economy. As a result, many Germans wanted revenge and held intense resentment towards the Allied Powers. Eventually, this plunged German into a state of desperation, where people were willing to follow anyone to lead them out of darkness. This led to the rise of Adolf Hitler, who was able to persuade Germans to free Germany from the “chains of Versailles”, where his many speeches mainly blamed the provisions of the treaty with responsibility of Germany’s many problems. Hitler’s mind-set and determination, along with the support of Germans, to make Germany into a stronger nation once again led to WWII and attempts to revoke the treaty. Had the terms of the treaty not punished Germany so harshly, it is unlikely that Hitler would have had the opportunity to so easily gained the support of the German people, thus avoiding World War II. The unreasonable terms of Treaty of Versailles almost inevitably caused the outbreak of World War II, which clearly reflects on how the treaty resulted in failed peace in the
One of the biggest hate crimes that happened in the world was the Holocaust killing 11 million people. A hate crime is a crime towards a specific group of people usually because of their sexual orientation, religion, ethnic origin, and race are some reasons people commit hate crime. Adolf Hitler was the mastermind behind the holocaust convincing people that the German race was the superior race. Hitler told people that all there problems came from the Jewish, Gays, and Gypsies. Hitler’s speeches convinced people that they were the main cause of all the problems happening in their country. He then convinced everyone through powerful speeches that only Germans should be alive because they were the “perfect race” according
One of the most important factors of a leader being successful at war is having strong support from their home front and Adolf Hitler used this to his advantage a multitude of times during his reign as chancellor of Germany through the use of propaganda. One example of this was on September 1st, 1939 when Adolf Hitler ordered a blitzkrieg attack at Germany’s eastern border, unto Poland. This act he knew, would trigger a declaration of war from England. On the same day as the attack “The New York Times” reported Hitler as to have said “Germans in Poland are persecuted with a bloody terror and are driven from their homes. The series of border violations, which are unbearable to a great power, prove that the Poles no longer are willing to respect the German frontier.” (Tolischus).
“The Jewish quarter was surrounded by barbed wire and later closed off with a 10foot high, 11mile long brick wall, which established the Warsaw ghetto. A 24 member Jewish Council, created by the Nazis and known as the Judenräte, maintained order and was the administrative link between the Jews and the Nazi Occupiers”(Warsaw Ghetto Uprising). An uprising that lasted five months by the Jewish people was turned around when Nazis bombed the ghetto and demolished synagogues in WWII. They moved in 150,000 Jews and established the Warsaw Ghetto. Over the next couple years it became cramped and many of the people died of starvation, disease, and extermination. Many Jews were also transported to death camps which was Hitler’s final solution. A Jewish
Occurring in 1914 until 1918 the First World War was a conflict between the Triple Alliance and the Triple Entente, later involving the United States. There were many factors that caused high tensions between countries in Europe, which led to a war. The United States involved itself in Europe's war because the circumstances were too large to avoid it.
