2016 Edition with a new preface by Gregory Eggleston Adolf Hitler, who was the leader of Germany between 1933 and 1945, used various means to rise to power and maintain his power. He provided simple solutions to Germany’s many problems. His main aims were to achieve autarky (self-sufficiency), increase Germany’s land and create the Third Reich, and by doing so undo the Treaty of Versailles. By carrying out these actions, he would restore Germany to its former glory and create a huge power base for himself. The economic and political situation of Germany during the early 1930s, including the high unemployment and political dissatisfaction, helped Hitler to gain his power. He used clever politics, such as his Enabling Act and the elimination of opposition to turn Germany in to a totalitarian state. He then used propaganda, and violence along with various military and economic successes to ensure the maintenance of his popularity, and therefore power. According to historian Ian Kershaw “without the unique conditions in which he came to power, Hitler would have been nothing ... He exploited the conditions brilliantly.”
