Best Answer

He tried to take over the government with the Munich Putsch. Afterwards he let the leaders he threatened go free. They organized an opposition to Hitler's SA march the next day.

Hitler was defeated in a street battle and was tried with treason. He was sent to Landsberg prison for 5 years of which he only served 9 months. He had an easy time in prison with access to books and a comfortable life.

During this time he wrote Mein Kampf (My Struggle) which expressed all of his political views. This gave him time to realize that if he wanted power he would have to get elected. Later, he did just that.
