WHAT SORT OF LEADER WAS HITLER?

FUHRER PRINCIPLE - FUHRER CAN'T BE WRONG - MUST BE OBEYED

THIRD REICH - 'DUAL STATE' - RIVAL HIERACHIES - RELATION BACK TO OLD IN ORDER NOT TO SCARE 

AFTER ENABLING ACT NO NEED FOR REICHSTAG - NO REICHSTAG MEETINGS - OTHER PARITES STILL HAD IDEAS -

 APRIL 1933 CIVIL SERVICE JEW PURGED - 2% OF C.SERVICE (1.5M) COMMUNISTS AND SOCIALISTS -

INFLIATRATION OF N.IDEAS THROUGH APPOINTING NAZI LEADERS OF STATES - SAID NAZIS NOT A REVOLUTION (PEOPLE HAPPY) 

JULY 1933 - 'THE PARTY HAD NOW BECOME THE STATE'

1938 - UNEASY COEXISTENCE BETWEEN NAZI & STATE.

FUHRER POWER

POWER GIVEN TO FUHRER - EXECTEUR OF COMMON WILL - POWER COMPREHENSIVE AND TOTAL - UNITES ALL SPHERES OF NATIONAL LIFE

COULD NOT MASK BASIC PROBLEMS - GOVT AND LAW OF N.GERMANY HAPHAZARD - NO WAY HITLER COULD CONTROL ALL ASPECTS 

 HITLER DEPENDENT ON SUBORDINATES 

 HITLERS PERSONALITY & ATTITUDE TO GOVT. MIXED - NOT CONDUCIVE TO STRONG & EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP
