Nazi propaganda constantly reinforced the notion that Hitler was the embodiment of the national will. Here, a determined looking Hitler in military dress stands with clenched fist, ready for action above the pumped up crowd. This poster, designed for a 1934 public referendum on uniting the posts of German chancellor and president, shows the same popular support for Hitler.

Adolf Hitler reached a place of superiority in the early years of his party. Being one of the best speakers of the party, he told the other members of the party to either make him leader of the party or he would never return. He was aided in part by his willingness to use violence in advancing his political objectives and to recruit party members who were willing to do the same. Hitler was recognized for his speaking in public and he got his first chance to speak in public when he was recognized by an approving army officer which gave him a chance to speak in pulblic (awful idea btw)
