Here's a taster:

A strong Germany?
From its formation in 1871, Germany had been dominated
by strong leaders striving for national unity and global
importance.
The democratic Weimar Republic, with its lack of strong
leadership and constant power struggles between
political parties, was seen as having failed to deal
effectively with Germany's post-war problems.
By 1932, the Weimar political system had been discredited.
Many Germans felt that the only way to turn this situation
around was to have one strong leader, prepared to take
`personal responsibility' for running the country.

The Führer Principle
The Führer Principle (Führerprinzip) was the belief that
Germany needed a strong, charismatic leader who could
unify and lead the people.
Hitler's power came to be regarded as
something above and beyond that of a
normal head of state.
No matter who you were in the Nazi
party or whatever your job in the state,
you were answerable to Hitler.

Hans Franck, Hitler's lawyer, wrote that: Imperial War Museum, London.
"Our constitution is the will of the führer...it was Hitler's
regime, Hitler's policy, Hitler's victory and Hitler's defeat ­
nothing else."
