THE FLEDGLING POLITICIAN
Part IV

This Part ("pages" 16, 17 & 18) follows Hitler back into civilian life and his "struggle" to control and form a small political group into a powerful, influential party. Many historians, based on today's recognition of democratic procedures, find fault with his actions. If, however, they would look back (as an example on the formation of their own governments), they would find that they are honoring some people who were made out of the same stuff as Adolf Hitler.

This Part (pages 16-18), with all supplementary links, is equivalent to about 56 book pages.
The narrative follows a chronological order (1920-1921) and is best read in sequence.

Access to footnotes (designated by an *) can be found at the top and bottom of each page.
Two ** indicate additional information.
