Chapter Four
Why Hitler Rose to Power

INTRODUCTION

In this chapter, we shall examine the more important causes of Hitler's advent to power. The material is divided into two sections. The first deals with "Hidden and Indirect Factors" accounting for Hitler's rise, chiefly moral and material support from abroad. It throws light on a field which has so far been inadequately explored. It presents unusual difficulties and challenges further research. The second section sets forth the "Obvious and Direct Factors," mostly acknowledged as such, that explain Hitler's triumph. The chapter ends with the conclusions to be drawn from the material presented in the preceding two sections, and the various factors are ranged according to their relative importance for Hitler's rise.

An Appendix, printed at the end of this book, exposes the untruths and falsifications contained in an English, a Dutch, and five Swiss publications of the years 1933, 1936, 1948, 1949, and 1952, regarding the alleged financing of Hitler and the Nazi movement before 1933 by American corporations to the amount of more than $32 million.
