Hitler was leader of the Nazi Party in World War II.
Adolf Hitler was born in April 20th 1889, and spent his Childhood in Austria. His father, Alois, retired from civil service in 1895, when Hitler was only 6 years old, which created a tense and strict atmosphere at home. When Hitler was 13 years old, his father died and and his mother, Kiara, had to take care of Hitler and his siblings by herself. Times were tough for the Hitler household. At 1905, at the age of 16 years old, he quit school and never returned.
Hitler dreamed of becoming an Artist, so in 1907 he registered and went to a painting school at Vienna Academy of Art. He did not pass his entrance exam, after his mother passed away from Breast Cancer. Hitler attempted to take the test again but wasn't allowed. Hitler spent four years in Vienna, living off what little he earned by selling postcards of his architectural drawings and the small inheritance from his mother. During this, Adolf Hitler started to dabble in politics and become especially influenced by pan-Germanism.
Serving in the First World WarEdit
To avoid military service in the Austrian Army, Hitler moved to Munich in Germany during May 1913 but as soon as World War I broke out, Hitler requested and recieved special permission to serve in the Bavarian-Germany Army. Hitler quickly proved to be a courageous soldier, and by December 1914 he was awarded the Iron Cross (Second Class). In October 1916, he was wounded by a grenade splinter and by August 1918 he was awarded the Iron Cross (First Class).
After the first World War, many German people felt betrayed by the German Government for their sudden and unexpected surrender. The subsequent inflation made even finding a job and day-to-day living difficult for the average German citizen. In 1919, Hitler worked for an army organization in which he checked-up on burgeoning local political groups. While spying on these groups in September during 1919, he found one he liked. Soon after joining the group (he became the 55th member), he soon was leading the group.
Hitler believed that he has the ability to provide a stronger Government that would bring strength and prestige back to Germany. So during November 9th 1923, he attempted a coup of the Government, the Beer Hall Putsch. It failed and Hitler was sentenced to 5 years at Landsberg Prison. Though he only served 9 months of his term, he used this time to formulate his thoughts about the new Germany, which he made into a book: Mein Kampf. Once he was released from Prison, Hitler continued his road to ultimate power.
Coming to power in GermanyEdit
By July 1932, Hitler had enough support to run for President of Germany, though he lost the election to Paul Von Hindenburg. However during January 30th 1933, Hindenburg appointed Hitler as Chancellor of Germany. Within a year and a half, Hitler managed to take over both positions of President (Hindenburg died) and Chancellor, and made them into one Supreme Leader: the Fuhrer.
After legally gaining power in Germany, Hitler quickly began soldifying his position by putting those that disagreed with him into concentration camps. He created massive amounts of propaganda that strengthened German pride by blaming all their problems on Communists and Jews. The concept of Pan-Gernamism inspired Adolf Hitler to combine German peoples in various Countries in Europe as well as look east for lebensruam.
Starting the Second World WarEdit
Since the world was extremley sensative about the possibility of starting a second world war, Hitler was able to annex Austria during 1938 without a single battle. But when he had his forces enter Poland during August 1939, the world could no longer stand aside and just watch-WW2 began.
World War 2Edit
From the Nuremberg in 1935 to Kristallnacht in 1938, Hitler slowly removed Jews from German Society. However, with the cover of WW2, the Nazis created an elaborate and intensive system to work Jews as slaves and kill them. Hitler is considered one of the most evil people in history because of his Holocaust.
After military successes to Denmark, Norway and Western Europe but after failing to subdue in Britain in 1941, Hitler ordered the invasion of the Soviet Union. In December 1941, Adolf Hitler declared war on the United States. The war on the Eastern front drained Germany's resources and in June 1944, the British and Americans landed in France.

Adolf Hitler believed the world should be filled with white people with blue eyes and blond hair. He hated Jews and believed they were evil. Hitler looked up to his mother.
"All great movements are popular movements. They are the volcanic eruptions of human passions and emotions, stirred into activity by the ruthless Godess of Distress or by the torch of the spoken word cast into the midst of the people".
"All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach".
"Any alliance whose purpose is not the intention to wage war is senseless and useless".
"To conquer a nation, first disarm it's citizens".
"How fortunate for leaders that men do not think".
"Hate is more lasting than dislike".
