The World During WW II

Adolf Hitler

Hitler was born in Austria, and he went to a regular village school. In

World War I Hitler was a Bavaria infantryman. He then worked his
way up to be the ruler of Germany. The power he had must have drove
him mad for he saw a vision, a vision of an expanded empire, a vision
of the perfect country. Hitler wanted a happy country where everyone
was perfect, so gypsies, Jews, and beggars were sent to concentration
camps where they usually were killed.
Hitler didnt notice that this was not a perfect country he was building.
Then Hitler ordered the invasion of Poland, starting off World War II.
Poland was not the last. One by one many of the little countries in
Europe fell to the might of his armies. As powerful as he was he made
a huge mistake by attacking the Soviet Union. American, British, and
Soviet troops finally defeated the Nazi army in 1945. Hitler committed
suicide and Germany surrendered.
