I'm not asking these question's as a platform to bash or praise Hitler, for all of his short comings, no one can deny that he was a dynamic speaker and a very savvy politico. When he rose to power Europe was teaming with many new political parties striving to fill the void created by WWI and the end of the era rule by King's and Czars and the end of the Ottoman Empire. At one point there was a dozen or more political party's fighting for power in Germany. The Nazi Party was a very small party in the 1920's that many viewed as weak at best. Even in the Nazi Party itself Hitler was one of many who could have risen to be the leader of the party. So I ask; 1. Would the Nazi party have been as powerful without Hitler as it's leader? 2. What other party would could gain power? 3. If Hitler had not joined the party, who would have been the most likely leader? 4. Would war have been inevitable without the Nazi Party in power? 5. What would Europe and the world look like today if the Nazi Party had never risen to power?
