What was the oath of Hitler?
The oath of Hitler or the Hitler oath was a pledge of allegiance that the German soldiers were to be sworn by during the "Third Reich" from the start of the 1930's and until the war ended in 1945. It meant that they were sworn loyalty to Hitler. Both soldiers and officers and many civilians were sworn under this oath. I apologize for my poor north European English. :)
Asked in Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini
How were Mussolini and Hitler similar?
Mussolini and Hitler Hitler was a fan of Mussolini but he put his own spin on Fascism. Mussolini was fired by his party in Italy and no one in Germany would have dared to try that with Hitler. They were similar in the way that they both wanted to take over a certain country and eventually take over the world. Also they were both watchful over the League of Natons. They are also similar in the way that they both lost and they both died in the end of all their chaos.
What two major events ensured Hitler of total control of Germany prior to World War 2?
The two major events that allowed Hitler to gain total control of Germany prior to World War 2 was the following: 1. After the death of Von Hindenburg, Hitler was able to be both Chancellor and President of Germany. This was vital. It's importance cannot be over estimated. Prior to the death of Von Hindenburg, Hitler was yes, Chancellor. But that meant he had the top position in the German Government. Hitler maneuvered to hold the office of President which gave him the top position of the German State. This position meant that while Von Hindenburg held the position of President, he could in fact order the Army to simply remove Hitler from the position of Chancellor. ( naturally there would need to be a reason, but there was reason enough, such as Hitler's suppression of a free press & more) 2. Hitler managed to do what even Bismarck was not able to do. Namely the Army swore allegiance to Hitler personally. ( A deal had been struck of course ) Looking into ancient history, Augustus Caesar, accomplished the same thing. The Roman legions did not swear allegiance to the Roman State, they swore allegiance to Augustus personally.
