So I got asked the question on Twitter via ASK.FM Was Hitler a successful leader? Now there's plenty of ways I could have tackled the question. I could have even included a joke or two but I answered the question with full honesty. I replied Hitler was a great, successful leader He turned Germany from a ruined, fragmented country into one of the most formidable powerful countries around in such a short period of time. He wrote first law of protecting animal rights in Germany, He fighted Breast Cancer and Lung Cancer, Nazi scientists were the first to definitively link lung cancer and cigarette smoking thanks to Hitlers Anti Tobacco campaigns. Organized crime was brought to 0% during his time in charge. The first motorways in the world were built in Germany, which basically everyone copied. Hitler eliminated unemployment throughout Germany, and saved the country from financial meltdown. First jet fighters, bombers, First Stealth Planes, first stealth submarine, first rockets, nuclear weapons, orbitals bombers, first helicopters were all developed by Third Reich. So what I'm saying is Do you think Hitler was a successful leader?
