Adolf Hitler Biography

Adolf Hitler was the German dictator who espoused the Nazi ideology of the Aryan master race and was the proud owner of the most sinister set of trimmed whiskers in moustached history. As the leader of the Third Reich he will be remembered as being the architect of WW2 and the principal cause of the Holocaust that saw the extermination of 6 million Jews in a Germanic ethnic cleansing of biblical proportions in mainland Europe.

He was the brave German soldier with a distinguished WW1 record that rose from the rank of lance corporal in the Bavarian Army to the lofty position of Chancellor of Germany in a riveting journey that ensured his place as the most infamous man of the twentieth century. The meteoric rise and slow but painful fall of Adolf Hitler is one of the most documented in recorded history, his mesmerising speeches captured the hearts and minds of disillusioned Germans and once in power he burned books, rewrote history and set the educational tone for two generations of patriotic Germans to live and die for their Führer.



He was a vegetarian who could not understand how anyone could eat the flesh of a former sentient being but yet he was driven by a passion for power and domination to achieve revenge over what he what he deemed as the injustices of the Treaty Of Versailles in the aftermath of WW1. In WW2 after the invasion and defeat of the French he forced their leaders to sign the treaty of surrender in the same train carriage that the Germans were forced to sign the 11th November armistice in Compiegne in 1918. This was a meticulous man whose attention to detail matched the symbolism of his beliefs forged by his view of the iron fist of history.

There are many anecdotes of his iron will dealing in both the rational and somewhat irrational reactions to whatever prevailing situations his leadership faced and his feared reputation meant his orders were usually carried out to the letter for fear of death. When your average totalitarian dictator excels they are often compared to Adolf but few can match the Führer's fury or the complete dedication to his set political ideals.

On a light hearted note I think of all the stories about Hitler that have made it to the silver screen and one small scene in the 1980 movie Flash Gordon really sticks in my mind: Klytus, who was the evil head of emperor Ming The Merciless' secret police, was precising at speed the history of the earth when he paused for thought in the Nazi era and exclaimed that "Hmmm, he showed promise". Birds of a feather I suppose, but, it had an effect deeper than the initial laughter the scene drew from me as it was a case of comedy parodying the tyranny of the despotic in a history of the entire world comparison that really made me think.

In this nuclear age we have to be more careful than ever of the tyranny of the dictator. When he talked the people of Germany listened and as with all charismatic leaders he was quick with a quip so here is my compilation of 20 of the best Adolf Hitler quotes

Quotes About Adolf Hitler

The historian Robert G. L. Waite was equally succinct with his comment: "As long as people are fascinated by the range and depth of evil, Hitler will find readers, for he was the Molech who devoured human beings in a regime that was the negation of God erected into a system of Government"

Winston Churchill was his ever caustic self when he commented: "If Hitler invaded Hell, I would make at least a favourable reference to the devil in the House of Commons"

Joseph Stalin said in his own inimitable way: "So the bastard's dead? Too bad we didn't capture him alive!"

The American poet Ezra Pound saw another side to the man: "Adolf Hitler was a Jeanne d'Arc, a saint. He was a martyr. Like many martyrs, he held extreme views"
