Adolf Hitler is history’s most notorious figure. An Austrian by birth, he enlisted in the Bavarian Army and fought for Germany during the Great War. After the war, he joined what would become the Nazi party, and after a failed coup attempt at the Munich Beer Hall Putsch, went to prison, where he wrote Mein Kampf. In 1933, he became chancellor of the Weimar Republic. A year later, he established himself as dictator of the
Third Reich—and the world would never be the same.
His stated objective was to seize Eastern Europe and kill off its Slavic population to make room for the ”racially superior“ Germans. The last imperial conqueror to pursue such a horrific policy was Genghis Khan—but even Khan couldn’t touch the grand scope and scale of Hitler’s cold,
businesslike slaughter of passive victims. By 1945, the Third Reich was nothing more than a finely tuned killing machine. All told, Hitler was
responsible for the deaths of 29 million human beings. He committed
suicide in 1945.
