    On 30 January 1933, Adolf Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany.
    Your statement was partially incorrect.

    One could also state that: "From the time of Hitler’s appointment as Chancellor of Germany in 1933 until the start of WWII in 1939, Germany was not at war with any country or state, but at war within itself. The result of this internal war was the war known now as World War II."

    Perhaps the prosperity of some portion of German citizens improved, but it was on the expense of much death and brutality to other German citizens.

    In the end, the expense was even greater, as anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of WWII knows.

    Nope - USA made lots of bombs from 2000-2008 shock and awe etc., where did it get us? - Germany prospered by taking back control of their banks and the media and saying f.u. to nations that claimed germany owed them money for losing the war. USA is in very similar position now as Germany was after WW2 - dick after dick and nothing gets done, only I hope people are smarter now not to blame it all on the Jews or the Arabs

    Hitler's in hell watching with anticipation to see what it develops into.

    Re: What do you think of Hitler?

    I think Hitler's role has been exaggerated in the historical narrative to a point of becoming a "super-villain" when reality was much different. Hitler and the Nazi's were not political/military geniuses. They were able to rise to power only because of the failure of the socialists and the collapse of the socialist movement due to their towing the line of the ComIntern as dictated by the USSR.

    Moreover, almost none of the successes that Nazi Germany accomplished, from social/political to military (I'm primarily thinking of military), had little or nothing to do with Hitler or his personal decisions, and in very many cases were only because they went against Hitler's decision. Many of Hitler's military propositions were completely stupid, and the only reason that Germany got as far as it did was because of a ton of luck and numerous genius military minds that excluded Hitler.

    Of course, going to war with the USSR was probably the biggest f*ck up that the Nazi's made, and guess whose decision that was?

    So pretty much everything that the Nazi's did was a failure if Hitler had his hand in it, or a success despite his stupidity.
