Description
Summary:From an easygoing childhood in Austria through high school problems and hardship: as a young adult, Hitler is hungry and even homeless at times. It's only after his parents' early death and an inheritance from his father that he manages to make something resembling a normal life in Munich, his city of choice. It is also here that he joins an army for the first time voluntarily. After World War I Hitler is installed at the NSDAP as a police informer. He quickly takes over a leadership role and modernizes the party. Admiring Mussolini's 'March to Rome' he attempts a coup in 1923 but fails and is jailed. In his year in prison, he writes 'Mein Kampf', and after being released, he re-establishes the NSDAP and develops the party into a powerful movement, even if the roaring 1920's don't cry for nationalism.
