1929- Watershed year -Stresemann out of Prime Minister position -Locarno Victory -US Stock market crash
1933- January Hitler is appointed Chancellor by Hindenburg, later the enabling act.(aka dictatorship status gained) and Clause 48 which gave leaders, in an emergency, absolute power (reason why no germans questioned his dictatorship)
Views- One day there would be 4 major powers: British, German EU/Russia, United States of Americas, Japanese Asia.
Goebbels: Propaganda Himmler: SS and Concentration camps Hermann Goering: leader of Air Force
Britain: Chamberlin: appeasement Churchill: awesome speeches, predicted war, lost credibility because of gallipoli
Mussolini: Inspiration to Hitler. Later Hitler just helps him out of predicaments. He’s mainly useless.
