Summary

February 26, 1924 was the first day of the greatly anticipated high treason trial that would galvanize Germany - but few in the courtroom that morning anticipated that the leading defendant, General Erich Ludendorff, whose risky offensives during World War I doomed Germany to defeat, would soon be eclipsed by the private first class at his side, Adolf Hitler. Hitler was charged with treason after unsuccessfully trying to seize power in the notorious Beer Hall Putsch in Munich in 1923. Before the trial, Hitler was only a minor, if ambitious, local party leader. Yet, once the proceedings began, his days of relative obscurity were over. Including never-before-published sources, this richly informed, day-by-day account shows how Hitler metamorphosed into a mesmerizing demagogue and used his trial as a stage for Nazi propaganda. Chilling in the hypothetical questions it raises, The Trial of Adolf Hitler illuminates our understanding of Hitler's path to power.

The Trail of Adolf Hitler

This recording covers the events leading up to the 1923 Munich putsch, the events of the putsch and the trial of the defendants. The depth of coverage of the trial provides a insight to the complicity of the Barvarian state and judiciary in the travesty that took place in the court where a case of high treason was punished with a sentence that meant Hitler was released after 6 months - when he should have been executed or served many years in prison before deportation to Austria.

Like January 1933 this episode is another of the turning points that lead Hitler to power when he could have been stopped before he gain ultimate power.

New Insights

Had always heard about the treason trial of Hitler but never got many details about the case this book adds new insights into the case and answers the question why Hitler and the codefendants got only Slap's on the wrist for treason.
