Nobody is of the impression that Hitler is responsible for everything that happened. He created a dictatorship that had posts which controlled individual things, so the military feats and victories are not that of Hitlers alone, but his military commanders, and for economics, his financial advisors. There is no dispute, however, that he was the mastermind behind all of this, he was the force that pushed things through, he was the reason the German people bought everything he could throw at them because he was clever enough to have created a cult of personality for himself that would serve him to the end.Again, Hitler was not the architect of such a massive plan. Moreover, they had huge infusions of foreign capital so it wasn't surprising in the least that they were able to rebuild.
Again, Hitler had little or nothing to do with most of this.
Try doing something terribly evil and getting the people to love you for doing it.
Just for a second, grasp that level of deception and public manipulation. That is pure genius.
Considering such things where achieved under Hitlers or Stalins reign, people tend to give credit to the leader of these regimes, even though he isnt the only one admired for his statesmanship (where it is due). Nobody can deny Joseph Goebbels was a fantastic propaganda machine.Again, it wasn't "his". Yes, Stalin was much more involved in all aspects of Soviet policy, to the point where other world leaders were astounded at the knowledge that he commanded of various military tactics, weaponry, etc... for example, but he is not the creator of every single policy during the years that he was in office. That is giving him way too much credit and, as I said earlier, letting way too many people off the hook.
Its not a realistic prospect to break it all down and give you the names of every individual politician responsible or whatever. I dont even know why you bothering making this argument. In the end there is the realization that none of this would have been possible without such leaders, they brought it together, they capitalized and did something at the time and changed the course of many people. That is why they deserve the credits, ultimately it is of there doing when it falls down to it.
