Ok so I have to make an outline for a thematic essay and the topic is Important people it's easy the person im chosing but just want to gain other helpful information I need to know Hitlers goals , two tactics he used achieve change or aims, and short and long term results please help x)
Sources could be Mein Kampf; he states his opinion there.
Tactics he used were both political and militaristic.
I can't get into detail without providing false info.
It's cool thanks for the other info though.
would you happen to know the same info needed for martin luther?
any specific questions?
he was an excellent pool player tho.
I know he wanted to do things like with banning of indulgences and stuff and thats all but I need to know long and short term results of him or hitler
that's my one verified info point. the rest is just theory. best look him up.
Your teachers may suggest not to use wikipedia, but they will accept its external links are sources, btw.
ahh alright thanks.
I can't help with Martin Luther, but can with Hitler. He used quite a few tactics, but here are two important ones: Tactic One - Use the system to get what you want He didn't just become Fuhrer overnight - he played up his platform of returning Germany to greatness while using the system to get what he wanted (while relying on his personal army of the SA to ensure that opponents were kept in fear or quietly dealt with). After his failed putsch in the 1920s, he realized that he needed politics to get things done. After becoming Chancellor, and the Reichstag fire, he Enabling Act of 1933 (approved by President Hindeburg after approval by the Reichstag largely cowed by the Nazis) made Hitler a virtual dictator. After President Hindenberg died later on, his office absorbed the Presidency and he became Fuhrer. After that, the Reichstag was pretty much a rubber stamp to let Hitler do whatever he wanted. Short term effects: Absolute power enabled him and the Nazi government to do as they pleased in both social and military matters. Opposing political parties were terrorized into toeing the line and the Jews were legislated into second-class citizens making the persecution of them even worse in Germany. Long tern effects: Plunged the world into war and the Holocaust. Britannica: http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/186351/Enabling-Act Tactic Two - Make peace with your enemy Part of Hitler's plan in the East was to eventually attack Russia, but Germany wasn't ready and he didn't want to face a two front war. But remember, both the Nazis and the Soviets were ideologically opposed to each other - National Socialism hated Communism and Hitler ranted against it in Mein Kampf. So it surprised everyone when the pact was made with the Soviets allowing them to invade, and then split, Poland between their forces when they invaded the country in 1939. No one really saw that one coming. Short term: Kept the Soviets sitting pretty when he turned West to invade the Low Countries and conquer France in 1940. Long term: The bad news was on the Soviet side for believing him in the first place - after finishing with France (though Britain was still undefeated), he swung East in 1941 to invade the Soviets now that the waiting was over. The treaty gave him the time he needed to keep the Soviets at arm's length until he was ready to sucker punch them in the jaw. Of course, he never expected it to be the beginning of the end for the Third Reich when the Russian bear didn't go down for the count.
