Adolf Hitler

Adolf Hitler (April 20, 1889 - April 30, 1945, standard was the Führer (leader) of
the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazi Party) 1933 to 1945. In that
capacity he was Chancellor of Germany, head of government, and head of state, an
absolute dictator.

A highly animated and charismatic orator, Hitler is regarded as one of the most
significant leaders in World history. The military-industrial complex has fostered
Germany out of the post-World War I economic crisis and, at its height, controlled
the greater part of Europe.

Hitler's attempt to create Greater Germany (Grossdeutschland), specifically the


annexation of Austria (Anschluss) and the invasions of Czechoslovakia and Poland,
was one of the primary factors leading to the outbreak of World War II in 1939. The
embrace of total war both By the Axis and Allied powers during this time led to the
destruction of much of Europe. Hitler is almost universally held responsible for the
racial politics of Nazi Germany, the Holocaust, and the death and displacement of
millions occurring during his leadership. Though he had hoped to be the founder of
a thousand-year-old Reich, he was reported to have committed suicide in his bunker
beneath Berlin with much of Europe, and especially Germany, in ruins around him
and the Red Army closing in. The Nazi regime

Having secured supreme political power without winning support from the majority
of Germans, Hitler did go on to win it and remained overwhelmingly popular until
the very end of his regime. He was a master orator, and with all of Germany's mass
media under the control of his propaganda chief, Dr. Joseph Goebbels, he was able
to persuade most Germans that he was their saviour from the Depression, the
Communists, the Versailles Treaty and the Jews.
