After the United states declared war on Germany during world War 2, German military leaders approached Hitler and asked him about his strategy for defeating the United states. Hitler said that he wouldn't need one because the United states was "racially impure" and that the United states was just "full of jews and niggers" and that a country such as that could never defeat Germany. This is one example of countless times that Hitler went against the expertise of his generals, causing their respect for him to dwendle. in fact, many German military leaders went against Hitler's back whilst strategizing knowing his incompetence at the drawing board. Hitler has been over glorified and embellished by modern history, because we are appalled to even consider that the US and it's allies could have nearly been brought to their knees by anything less than a military and social genius.
He was well spoken, half of what is necessary for being a good leader (convincing people that you're going in the right direction, that is). The other half is not so much, actual decision making was terrible. He had specialists, very good ones that often times led him to victory, and a proactive movement that exploited appeasement of those that feared "Another great and terrible war,
which should be the greatest and only". Hitler was often times doped up on medicine water, and his betrayal of certain groups (night of long knives) and ability to get away with it leads me to believe that he possibly was a figurehead to keep attention away from another person or group in the shadows. He may have been ruthless, he may have been unwaivering in his cause, but I don't see him being able to make himself a leader then having personal weaknesses that get a person replaced. Whoever was close to him could take charge, and they wouldn't even have to kill him, (some people did try, I believe it was project Valkyrie). I do believe that people are able to do the insane, and get away with it because nobody would believe it or think of how they'd try to stop it. In this case, I don't see why Hitler could hold his power, I don't mean convincing the public but in regards to the people that he worked with, I'm betting that they could do a better job but could never convince the public of their cause.
The guy was an insane mess and a sorry excuse for a human, but you've got to admit he did succeed in bringing Germany into greatness somehow.
Hitler was a great leader, he just had horrible motives.
he is a hero since he rised Germany from nothing to almost Europe. and an idiot to torch the flames of races against him
and he got his country into deep debt, again.
he was terrible at leadership, his generals was obviously the reason he got that far.
and who invades russia in the winter?
anyone who invades russia in the winter is going to have a bad time.
dear God, can you go a single debate without trying to blame Obama for something? We're discussing historical leader and you're trying to bring Obama into it. Obama and Hitler are nothing alike. Please stop trying to derail debates.
Kind of like Obama. Obama is good at leading sheep to destruction.
that being said the end results of his leadership were the ruin and destruction of his country. so while he is a "great" leader in the historical sense, he is not a fantastic leader. a fantastic leader does not lead his country to ruin.
he brought his country out of depression. he unified a disenfranchised and very divided country. he rebuilt his military from nothing. he took a that military and conquered all of Europe. he gave everyone jobs. he built up their infrastructure. he almost made Germany the hegemons of Europe. He accomplished things that very few people could have done. and some things that no one has ever done. he was definitely a screwed up person who did terrible things. but he accomplished great things as well.
Hitler was not a fantastic leader. AT ALL. He may have done great evil things but a fantastic leader does not go around ordering the extermination of the jews.
In a political sense, Hitler was an exceptional leader indeed.
if being a leader of a country is all about one aspect, might as well run your own world in a virtual game especially ones that focuses on financial aspects. in there he would be able to completely control everything and everyone. we are in a real world where there are real people who would not completely be mind-controlled, who are slowly learning to fight for their rights and the likes. hitler played his own subordinates' minds by telling them opposing commands only by word of mouth etc. so the next time you see a friend of yours telling different people different stories to manipulate them, go ahead and encourage them to be the next president, maybe they'll become as fantastic as hitler. he was also slow in deciding for military strategies, he was just really aggressive and had not really thought of the long run effects of being the enemy of many countries.
Germany was already a world super power. that's why they were able to take on multiple countries in WW 1. they were just in a rough spot because of the depression, like everyone else. Hitler played his cards well politically. but militarily, financially and physically he destroyed his country.
He got his country out of deep economic debt...and created a world superpower almost overnight...he knew how to play his cards.
yeah i bet you could call him fantastic if you were born without legs. like to submit to him and be a martyr and offer to die so your country wont suffer huh? just like telling your mom, "i really do admire hitler and his plans for our country, i am a defect and you made a mistake in carrying me in your womb, i would like to die now"... hmmpp...
Hitler was a smart leader. he played off his population brilliantly and accomplished great (in the historical sense) things. But in the end he lead his country to ruin, got his country divided, killed millions of his people. Everything he did good and bad fell apart and came to nothing. In my opinion fantastic leaders don't destroy their country.
sry i don't know you live in Germany!
Hitler was one of the world's smartest and greatest leaders. For sure.
He was able to use propaganda to successfully brainwash people. He used lies about Jews to make people like them less. He had schools teach that being a Nazi is cool and had his own clubs to teach young men how to shoot and trained them for the army. He was able to rise to power successfully and impressively. He was a bad leader. He was the greatest bad leader ever if that makes sense.
I live in Germany! That wasn't a great time for us.
We called people like you Nazi.
In Germany we mustn't say his name and if we draw the symbol of him we got in prison
First of all, I'm not saying his intentions were good. I was saying that he was a phenomenal leader. He managed to convince a many, many country's to commit genocide.(Obviously failed) Like I said, think about what I am saying.
This is not good! How do you come on so stupid ideas?! Whit him a many people die!
