"And so it had all come to this. Did all this happen only so that a gang of wretched criminals could lay hands on the fatherland? Hatred grew in me, hatred for those responsible for this deed." The words are those of Adolf Hitler; the deed - Germany's surrender in the First World War, and the wretched criminals - the politicians who had meekly accepted the surrender and the defeat of Germany. Germany had suffered during the war - not only on the battlefield but domestically. Starvation and fuel shortages, further aggravated by the 'Spanish flu' epidemic of 1918 that killed millions throughout Europe, had led to widespread discontent. Inflation and economic stagnation caused embitterment, and the increasing number of frontline casualties as Germany had to fight a war on two fronts, had left the nation disillusioned. This, in an hour, is how it all happened.
