Asked in History of Germany, Adolf Hitler
How did Hitler gain control of the German military?
In Germany, the President was (and still is) the commander in chief of the military. After President Hindenburg died in 1934, Hitler did not hold elections to choose a new President; instead, he had the President's political powers added to his own as Chancellor. He renamed the position "Führer und Reichskanzler" ("Leader and National Chancellor"), or "Führer" ("Leader") for short. So, as Führer, he was automatically in control of the German military.
Is the president subject to military code of justice?
The president is not a member of the military. It might seem strange to hear that since he is Commander In Chief. This is a very important point. The US military is ultimately under civilian control. Think about how important that is. What could happen if military authority in the US were independent of civilian authority.
