Structure & Logic of This Book – Chapter II

Adolf Hitler was a genius – no doubt about that. But even that was not enough to create the unique Nazi state (actually, the Nazi civilization) without the influence of very powerful external events and forces.

Consequently, the second chapter will cover (in a reasonable detail) these events and forces that stimulated the establishment of Nazi Germany – the Great War (World War I), the Armistice, the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the subsequent establishment of the Stalinist Soviet Union, the November Revolution of 1918, the Great Hunger caused by the Blockade of Germany by the Entente powers, the Treaty of Versailles, the economic crisis and hyperinflation of 1921-1933, the Great Depression of 1929-1933, the general failure of Weimar Republic to satisfy the needs of its citizens and, of course, the Reichstag Fire that for all practical purposes finally delivered the fatal blow to the latter.
