Although his actions were not justified, Hitler became the most dominant man in the world. Adolf Hitler was born on April 20, 1889 in the Austrian town of Braunau. He was the fourth child of Alois Schickelgruber and Klara Hitler. Two of his siblings died from diphtheria when they were children, and one died shortly after his birth. Hitler’s father was a customs official, illegitimate by birth, which was described by his housemaid as a "very strict but comfortable" man.
Hitler's use of the SA forced people into voting for him. Hitler knew he could not keep these promises, but he made the People of Germany believe him, he was able to touch people's emotions, his rally's created excitement and positivness in the German people. Hitler was their last chance to help restore Germany to her to respectability and powerfulness. Hindenburg seeing Hitler's popularity grow, had to think of something to protect the Weimar but at the same time keep control of Hitler. There are many reasons for Hitler being made Chancellor.
Kershaw provides support for his argument by including the views of other structuralists, such as Hans Mommsen, Martin Broszat, and ... ... middle of paper ... ...ons imposed their own restrictions on Hitler’s maneuverability”. Therefore, Hitler made those decisions based not only on his own beliefs, but also in accordance to the beliefs of his followers and fellow leaders. Many of the developments that happened under Hitler’s reign would likely have still happened had Hitler not been elected, because they “were in certain respects likely if not inevitable as the unfinished business of the First World War and the post-war settlement”. There are few discontinuities in German foreign policy after 1933, giving reason to believe this theory. His choices were based on the traditions of German policy and were aimed at reaching domination in central Europe, which leads to the conclusion that World War II was not the result of Hitler’s master plan, because it may have been the result no matter who was in charge at the time (360).
Nationalism causes other nations to become suspicious, and it also leads to a war that could easily be resolved other ways. The system of alliances was another underlying cause, as it made the war a world war by bringing all of Europe into it. WW1 began because of militarism, nationalism, and the system of alliances. The presence of militarism, an ideology that claims that the military is the most important aspect of a society, before and during the war led to jealousy and hard feelings, thus escalating the war far before it needed to be. Although this was not the primary cause, it was still an extremely important factor in the playing out of WW1.
His intentions may not always reflect the best that a man can be, yet he made the world realize that if we are not unified then we can be defeated. Hitler taught us many lessons that affect the way we live our lives today such as the protection on all the borders and the United Nations keeping the peace between countries. Yet the world was not always as peaceful as many people believe it to be today. Hitler was only a young man when he realized what was happening to his country because of World War 1. The suffering that many Germans had to go through because of the Treaty of Versailles was tragic and unforgiveable by many.
1. What factors caused World War 1 to break out? There were many reasons for the outbreak of world war one the main causes include Nationalism, militarism, alliances imperialism and the Balkan and morocco crises there were many other causes for world war one such as the assassination of the heir to the Austro-Hungarian empire Franz Ferdinand and the assassination of jean Jaures a French socialist considered as Europe’s last chance for peace in the build up to the first world war. Nationalism was a main factor in the cause of the First World War. This was because most people in this period was very proud of their country as it was straight after the big industrial revolution in Europe this factor created tension between rival countries such as Germany Austria-Hungary and Russia this indirectly lead to the dual alliance between Germany and Austria-Hungary to protect themselves from Russia then 3 years later in 1881 the Austro-Serbian alliance was formed between Austria-Hungary and Serbia to stop Russia taking control of Serbia, Nationalism was a key factor in causes the Great war because it helped cause tension between nations which lead to alliances which was also a major cause of world war one ; The alliances in Europe played a big role in the break out of world war one because if one nation declares war on another than the allies of the nations must help win the war, for example on august the 3rd 1914 Germany declares war on France Because of the triple entente of 1907 Britain had no choice but to help her allies and declare war on Germany and help France with their offensive plan XVII to push through eastern France to the German borders.
Also a interesting fact is that Hitler was coached in public speaking by Dietrich Eckart. While Hitler was in control of Germany, he affected the world, in many different ways, some evil, but also many good. This was because he was an okay leader. He helped to improve Germany’s economy and military. He also added a lot of territory to the borders of Germany, and the majority of the people under his rule came together in national unity believing in Hitler.

Indeed Emil Lederer, a contemporary observer argued that winning over the masses was not merely more important than brutality as a means of control, but was the “necessary pre-requisite for the use of terror.”(Hiden et al, 1983, p.53) Bibliography J Fest (1974) Hitler (Weidenfeld and Nicolson) D Geary (1993) Hitler and Nazism (Routledge) J Hiden & J Farquharson (1983) Explaining Hitler’s Germany (Batsford Academic and Educational Ltd, 1989 edn) I Kershaw (1991) Hitler ( Longman) S Lee (1998) Hitler and Nazi Germany (Routledge) D Peukert (1987) Inside Nazi Germany (B.T.

One leader, whose success is controversial, is Adolph Hitler. Hitler’s success can be seen as his own through to his charismatic qualities, military tactics and the holocaust. All three of these topics were original to him and made him a notorious leader and gained him success. Hitler’s success can also be due to the horrible conditions in Germany at the time of his rise to power. The failure of the economy, extreme nationalism and the fragile government of Germany in the 1920’s and 30’s could also be seen as the reason for Hitler’s success(Wepman 98).
There were multiple causes to World War II and it is difficult to pin point which cause had the greatest impact of the creation of the war, though most would agree that Adolf Hitler’s involvement throughout the years leading up to World War II was one of the greatest causes of the war and Hitler was involved in multiple causes of World War II. However, Hitler is not the only cause of the war. The failure of appeasement, the Treaty of Versailles, the failure of the League of Nations, as well as financial depression also caused World War II to occur. All of these causes ultimately created devastation for the world with the creation of World War II. One cause to World War II was Hitler’s invasion of Poland, which caused Great Britain to declare war on Germany, and thus was the beginning of a war that would destroy more land and lives than any other war that had occurred before it.
