He was the Fuhrer (literally, Leader) of Germany. As such he wielded absolute power over that country. He came to that position with one intention in mind, to start a second war in order to avenge Germany's defeat in the first. From the moment he came to power in 1933 his every effort was directed a…t preparing Germany for war. When he thought they were ready, he launched it. Michael Montagne. Hitler was an extremist polititian that expressed his views through the country's political views. He wanted to become something powerful. So he went with the country's view points. Though many people think that it was the country's fault (Germany) that led Hitler to power it may be untrue because they never knew he would lead to such disaster. (MORE)
Answer . The leader (fuehrer) of Germany Hitler's job was to oversee the running of an empire; his Third Reich.
Hitler influenced many people life during the War, he put the rascism idea in Germany which made all the Germany to hate Jewish. He made a big Genocide on the people whom he believed that they were Jewish. He put the idea of hatred among peoples and nations..
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nThose who survived the war, about two thirds of the armed forces, went various routes.\n. \nAbout a third dispersed, went home, or were detained briefly and released to make their way in a devastated country. \n. \nAnother third were kept in British/American POW cam…ps. Many of these starved to death and were terribly treated. It is well documented that Eisenhower signed documents denying these POWs basic Geneva protections such as latrines and simple shelters. German veteran support groups for years claimed that several hundred thousand German POWs died in American hands alone. The American government released a supposedly thorough report in the mid 1950's that denied this large number, but did accept that about 10,000 had died of starvation or other mistreatment in American run camps - all after the war.\n. \nThe French took their revenge by enslaving several thousand German men to forced labor at various projects including French coal mines. Here about 5,000 died due to overwork, poor food, etc. (Interestingly the French closed their last coal mine in 2005.) Additionally many German veterans, having few options, joined the French military. Here many fought in Indochina (Vietnam) up until the French collapse in 1954.\n. \nThe worst attrocities against German POWs were pepetrated by the Soviets. Due to Soviet brutality against civilians many German soldiers fought to the death on the eastern front, trying to hold back the barbaric Soviet troops. So few prisoners were taken that Stalin complained to Eisenhower who promptly assisted by turning over some of his POWs to the Russians. About 3,000,000 were taken to Russia after the war. Most ended up in terrible camps - starving, scurvy ridden, working in rags in all weather. Due to starvation rations all the larger men died quickly leading their Soviet captors to joke about the survivors being 'Stalins little ponies'. About a million of these veterans died over three or so years. Some were kept in camps for ten years, until 1955 (after Stalin's death). Reports continue that several hundred thousand were NEVER released, just being gradually worked and starved to death, the last dying out around 1960.\n. \n. \n Comment \n. \n1. The above answer treats all German soldiers as Nazis, as 'Hitler's men'. Even in the Waffen-SS attitudes towards the Nazi régime weren't constant. \n. \n2. As for the higher-ranking Nazis and some war criminals, it's well known that many managed to find asylum in Argentina and Paraguay.\n. \n3. German POWs were treated well by Britain and America and were repatriated within three years or less. There was one well known exception in which about 4,000 German POWs in the hands of the Americans perished (at Rheinwiesen) - and it caused a scandal. It was towards the end of the war, when there was a sudden increase in POWs in Allied hands. One can argue that it was mismanagement but wasn't murder. It should be obvious that the author of the above answer is an grinding some axe.\n. \n4. It's known that in general German POWs in Soviet captivity had a hard time. There's a good, thoughtful description by Helmut Gollwitzer, published in 1951 about a year after his return to Germany from Siberia. Something that emerges clearly is that conditions varied a lot.

Corporal Hitler was a dispatch runner, taking messages back and forth from the command staff in the rear to the fighting units near the battlefield. He was wounded at the Battle of the Somme and went home to Germany to recover but went home to see a country in near ruin. Hitler blamed most of this… on the Jews (which is one of the reasons for his hatred of the Jews) and believed they were conspiring against Germany. He asked to go back to the front line and was promoted shortly afterwards. The man who suggested his promotion was in fact a Jew which is a fact that he later obscures and hides. He was also temporarily blinded. Meh. (MORE)
Hitler wanted to rule the world. Hitler was able to gain a following by promising to attack Jews, social democrats, capitalists, communists and others. His intent was to also regain national pride after limitations from the Treaty of Versailles had been imposed at the end of World War 1. He was also… trying to prevent other countries from attacking it by attacking first. (MORE)
Adolf Hitler was the founder and leader of the Nazi Party inGermany. He lead the German (Nazi) empire to new heights of powerin the Second World War. Hitler's Nazi Government was known as theThird Reich. Hitler claimed the third Reich would last athousand years - and it might have, had he not so fo…olishlyattacked the Brits, and then the Russians. After the bombing ofPearl Harbor, American joined the war and in just 12 years from itsinception, the Third Reich was toppled by the allied forces ofAmerica, Britain and Russia. Hitler was the leader of the Axis Powers who wereoriginally Hitler (Germany) Mussolini (Italy), Joseph Stalin(Russia/USSR) and General Togo (Japan) When Hitler faills to takeBritain he then broke treaty and turned on Russia, prompting Stalinto leave the Axis Powers and join the Allies. The Axis Powers thenconsisted of Japan, Germany, and Italy. Hitler was a corporal in WWI that had been gassed. He left the armya very bitter man. He thought that Germany had sold it's soldiersout and the country due to the peace treaty. And that treaty was soharsh in demanding payment to countries for the death anddestruction that Germany went into a deep depression where manyGermans starved to death. And Germany was limited to 100,000soldiers from that treaty. This put millions of professionalsoldiers out of work. So with all the hate and poverty and starving in Germany Hitlerlooked for answers. He met several men that would direct his hateand blame on the Jews and International Bankers. This group of menwere also hate mongers and ex-army. Leaders of the Nazis saw in hima ruthless leader type that could speak well to large groups. Whichhis speeches were full of promises to make Germany great again andget the country working again and the big promise to end the peacetreaty stop paying war debts and increase the army again. Once theNazis were a political party of 3 million he actually told his mento go out one night and kill many of the people that had trainedhim and had helped him gain power. The killings were called theNight of the Long Knives. Anyone that was against him or might getas much power as he had was killed. (MORE)

he did not realise why the other nations were at war with him to begin with; he saw nothign wrong with what he was doing
Hitler was able to create a scenario of full employment (more or less). The issue was however the way in which he went about it. There are two sides to the answer, in some ways Hitler used elements of Keynesian policy employing people in large public works (although many were aimed at readying Germa…ny for war). And on the other side Hitler simply rounded up those unemployed or 'undesirable' and thus further reduced unemployment. (MORE)
He was a spy for his country. he was not a spy he was a public speaker and then became a polotition
Hitler was a brave soldier: he was promoted to the rank of Corporal, was wounded twice (in 1916 and 1918) and was awarded several medals.. The German Army rank he achieved was 'Gefreiter'. This is equivalent to 'lance-corporal' in the British army, and 'private first-class' in the US army. . A Cor…poral. (MORE)
A driver in WW1 rode on team horses which pulled wagons, guns, ambulances, equipment. Usually a wagon had a team of 6 horses, 3 pairs of 2. Each driver was responsible for his two horses (feeding, shoeing, vet care, etc.) and he teamed up with two other drivers to pull the wagon.. Drivers were usua…lly privates in rank, but designated "Driver" to distinquish them from infantry.. Drivers were essential in getting supplies, food, ammunition and equipment to the men at the front, and bringing wounded back to medical stations. It was a dangerous job as they were targeted by machine guns and artillery to prevent them getting supplies through.. Their uniforms were very similar to the Light Horse except they wore peaked caps instead of slouch hats. They wore leather putties, instead of canvas, and spurs. (MORE)
He convinced the polish people to say that Jews were bad like poison. Read the book Yellow Star by Jennifer Roy. Its about the authors grandmother who was only 1 of the 12 children that lived through WW2, living in the Lodz ghetto, in Lodz, Poland
i believe it did because Hitler was a soldier on the front line who was blinded by mustard gas and had to recover in a hospital and as he recovered he swore to get revenge for Germany
He wanted to take over the world and make Chirstianity the only religon in the world.
Pretty much the same as they are now. Private, Corporal, Sergeant, Lieutenant, Captain, Major, Colonel, General.
From an underground bunker Hitler tried for many months to run thewar, but ultimately was unsuccessful. After his suicide on April 30it still took several weeks for all the Generals to surrender andthe treaties to be signed.
Boundless expansion and the elimination of Bolshevism. (He saw the Jews as the 'biological carriers' of Communism.
He didn't have any achievements. His plan for a super race failed, his desire to exterminate all Jews in the Halocaust failed, his plan to destroy the Allied forces failed, and he and his wife committed suicide just as the allies were approaching.
the role was to kill no matter what happened lol wb :P ANSWER He enlisted as a volunteer in the German Army, where he reach the chevron of Corporal. He was mainly employed to deliver dispatches between the front and the back line in the western front.
His origional plan was to go to a Jewish art school but he couldnt so he went on a rampage
actually he took up residence in FÃ¼hrerbunker which was located beneath Hitler's New Reich Channcellory in berling, germany. Thank you

Hitler was responsible for WWII. Hitler used the media to twist the minds of his followers so now most media in the USA is owned by one political party. he also greatly decreased the overall Jewish population.
Well he started WW2.He was the main aggressor during WW2.He was very successful for over half the war. Then he went kinda crazy.Well he was always crazy, but the combined affects from Syphilis and Meth made it a lot worse.
Well, there was of course the Nazis (Germans), there was also Italy, Japan and various other countries in eastern Europe. . The Italians - although there was a little opposition to the alignment at times. Also, the Japanese. Hitler had a non-aggresion pact with Russia at the beginning of the war th…at he later reneged on.

More or less, Hitler was the top Nazi. he wasn't a good leader of Germany, but he was wanted for alot of money. He wanted to get rid of the Jewish in Germany. He made the first consentration camps in Germany. He has the ww2 in his hands until USA entered the war thanxs to the Japanese. When they ata…cked Perl Harbor in1944 was when USA got the bigest army in the world bigger than all armys in ww2 together. That's when USA got the power of ww2 and made the German surrender when he was parts of the allys and defeated the Japanese alone. Can I just say that Hitler was an incredible leader of Germany. He wanted Germany to be the best country in the world. He would make speaches that had everyone fired up yo do whatever it took to make Germany the greatest and when Hitler was elected to be there leader, there was a great celebration. Just because he started a war doesn't automatically make him a bad leader. By the way, I am not saying that what Hitler did is OK in any way, cause it's not. I'm just saying he was a good leader for Germany. (MORE)
Put simply, it was just to take over Europe and use this power to take over the world.
The German army , just they was in war with all the world , the worst is the Italian army , they was beated even by the french, shame on them for all eternity.
If you believe you have been born of the purest blood, fight for the Fatherland.
He was head of the German Government and therefore responsible forthe war itself and all that Germany did, including the holocaust.
Yes, because Germany was in such a poor state that the people needed someone to lead them.
Hitler can probably seen as the direct cause for World War 2. One of the main items of his Nazi party was that Germany had been punished to hard by the Allies in the First World War. He wanted to set things right. This is why a lot of Germans voted for him. The following actions like strengthening t…he German forces and deploying an army in the French-German border were merely used to see how far he could go. Certain sources believe that Hitler thought the annexation of Poland would not lead to the Second World War yet, but the Allies kept their ultimatum and declared war. In the end you could say that Hitler's actions did contribute to World War 2 a lot, but that he could never had so much influence on it if the German civilians hadn't been supporting him. (MORE)
Hiter was trying for power from around 1925 but gained popularity in the 1930s and from there caused World War 2.
In World War 1? He was an ordinary soldier fighting in a Bavarian unit of the German Army. (Bavaria was a kingdom within the German Empire).
Hitler had a big negative impact on the world,because he thought he could defeat all the Jewish and there allies....... BY Natashia N
It's not much of a rank, he was appointed to chancellor in 1933, then dictator of Germany.
The outbreak of World War 2 was NOT Hitler's fault because he didnt sign the appeasement with chamberlain but all of the blame went on Hitler because her didnt sign this. He invaded poland but they wont happy so then the blame went on him again. France and Britain needed to lay of him for a bit but …hitler retaliated and fought back and this is where the blame went on Hitler and this is why the outbreak was his fault. This is a reason why it wasnt his fault but mainly it was. (MORE)
His idea for WWII was to erase an entire race from the planet. to leave the jews as a smudge on the wall of greatness to put himself in their place on that wall. He was a great and powerful leader.

No, Hitler's paternal grandfather, Johann Georg Hiedler, died in 1857. His maternal grandfather, Johann Baptist PÃ¶lzl, died in 1902.
his dog tag was 148 he was in the 1st company of the 16th Bavarian Reserve Infantry Regiment as a runner rank of corporal
Hitler had a dozen or so HQ's, the most infamous probably being the so-called "Wolf's Lair" in East Prussia.

yes Er, No! Hitler played no leading part in WW1. He was just a corporal.
He was a Gefreiter (Lance-Corporal) in the infantry, employed as a company runner on the Western Front, serving on the Somme. The accounts of his wartime heroism, as related in 'Mein Kampf', are not reliable. One of his comrades later wrote that he was a skiver, who always tried to stay at Headqua…rters and avoid the action, and only gained his Iron Cross by pulling strings. His role in the army was most significant just after the war, when he gave pep-talks to defeated troops, assuring them that they hadn't been defeated, only stabbed in the back. These pep-talks attracted bigger and bigger audiences, and formed the basis for the Nuremberg rallies. (MORE)
Hitler's big failure was that he didn't commanded his troops in rusia,if we did taht,we would probaly conquered urrs and the ww2 was different from what we know now.
He was the dictator of Germany's Nazi Party. He also commanded the German army in World War 2.
How did the European experience in World War 1 contribute to Hitler's ability to aggressively expand in Europe prior to World War 2?
People in Europe remembered the terror that they had experienced during WW1 - this was through damage. 1.4 million were killed from France, 1 million from Britain and 100,000 from USA. This meant that they were scared of another war from standing up to Hitler. This meant that the powers were willing… to give Hitler what he wanted (such as land) in order to avoid war. This was through appeasement (from 1935-1938), which meant giving into Hitler, if his demands were "reasonable" (MORE)
among others: eliminated civil rights for Jews and began to develop the "final solution" for the "problem" of Jews, dissidents, homosexuals and handicapped persons; built up German infrastructure, esp. highways; rebuilt German military; jailed Communists, liberals and other opponents; occupied Czech…oslovakia and Austria (MORE)
How might Germany's struggle to recover from World War 1 have contributed to Hitler's ability to gather a strong following?
Germany was having a hard time recovering from WW1, and many peoplewanted a change, and for their country and economy to be strongagain. Hitler promised that, and to a great extent, he delivered.Thus, many people wanted to follow him, even when some laws werepassed that they didn't agree with. I th…ink it is easier to understand if we look at our own countriesand the political things that happen. None of us agree with all ofthem, and some of them we wish we could change, and we definitelydon't all know what is going on behind the scenes. It takes a lotof strength to stand up to tyranny, especially when it seems to begood for the economy. (MORE)
