Topic: does anyone think that hitler was a very smart man


eventhough i know that we would have kicked hitlers a** anyway, i still think he was a very smart and educated man, if his "secret" weapons had come out, i think we would have had a run for our money, just want to know what every1 thinks.

For starters, they were not "his" weapons, I highly doubt he spent much time in labs coming up with any of this stuff. The only thing I might credit him with is craftiness in the area of psychology, specifically mob psychology.

Well, yes and no. He was a great politician, and great speacher. He was not at all educated, he was a madman. He was incomtent as a stratigist. And as for his secret weapons, he had little to do with them...The german scientists are responsible for that...

The only thing I give him is the ability to go from a bum to conquerer of of Europe. Not many people would be able to do that, and there his positive traits end.

Hitler? smart? educated?
no way man.....
he served in WWI as an courierbiker (?), and was awarded with the Iron Cross for accidently surviving a attack with C Weapons....
after the war he tried become an artist but he was to bad for the art academy, so he decided to move into politics.....
In the chaos of the Weimarer republik he decided to go to a unknown nationalistic party.....the party tried to revolt and the politicians were arrested..i think hitler got 1 or 2 years (im out of school some time).
during that time he wrote his mein kampf.
After that some leading politicians of the nsdap were searching for a man who could get them more popular and they decided to give hitler a minor job and let him do some speeches.....*bang*
they reckognized that that he has an awfull effect on the crowd....
since then they used him to push the nsdap to the lead....
It wasnt even planned to make him the leader, but hitler did some very diplomatic speaches with the leader of the government and he decided to suggest hitler as the new Reichspresident.
At this time the SA wiped out almost every serious political opponent of hitler, by killing them. Actually at this time political fights were transferred on the streets by paying old WWI units, which havent learned anything in their life but to kill people. The streets of berlin looked like a battlefield sometimes during that period when the units fought with machine guns and morters against each other.
So the election was a farce, because there were no serious opponents, because they knew if they would challenge him they would be murdered.
So Hitler won......
ANd he was a terrible strategist.....
If he would let have his generals do their work, and wouldnt bring his "brilliant" suggestions into the plannings, europe would be germany.
Absolutely sure.......
That was the short version of short period of the Weimarer Republik

He was sentanced for 5 years but he ended up serving less than a year because of amnesty.

Hitler was so smart that he was dumb. The way he could turn a whole nation against an entire people, but that ultimatly killed him. He was a madman who got lucky that the soviets didnt get to him... I would have loved to see that
