The Meaning of Hitler was written by a German journalist by the name of Sebastian Haffner In this book Sebastian Haffner probes the historical political and emotional forces that molded Adolf Hitlers character Sebastian Haffner also examines closely Hitlers rise to power as Fhrer of Germany as well as his great achievements Adolf Hitler began by making a mess of his life He dropped out of school at the age of 14 failed his entrance exam at the Vienna Academy of Arts twice and spent the time from his eighteenth to his twenty-fifth year in Vienna and then in Munich doing nothing and aspiring to nothing Then in 1914 when World War I broke out Hitler volunteered for the Bavarian army Hitler was a good soldier and received a couple of awards for bravery but never ranked higher than corporal In 1918 when Germany finally surrendered Hitler was very upset He believed that it was the Jews and the Communists who betrayed the fatherland and it was at this time that his hatred for the Jews most likely began In 1919 Hitler joined a small radical Right-wing party which called itself the National Socialist German Workers Party or Nazi party where he soon became the leader The party was small at first but Hitlers great skill at deliberating speeches attracted more and more listeners and it soon became a major political party with many followers Since the country was in chaos after World War I and was faced with the Great Depression the Germans saw hope in Adolf Hitler Unemployment was at about 40 and rising and people were starving and poor In his speeches Hitler blamed the Jews and Communists for their misfortunes So why did so many Germans follow Hitler When he took power Germany and all of Europe was suffering from the Great Depression and were looking for answers and hope Hitler was their answer No factor contributed more to Hitlers success
