At the age of nine, Adolf Hitler discovered his love of drawing. He wanted to
attend classical school when it came time to choose secondary schools, but his
father would not allow it. His father forced him to attend technical school so he
could become a civil servant like himself.

the age of sixteen, he left home and moved to Vienna, where he lived as a
vagabond. Then, in May of 1913, he joined the 16th Bavarian Infantry Regiment,
where he served for 5 years.
