Hitler's Rise and Weimar's Demise
Graham Darby points to common errors and omissions that should be avoided.
Nazi Germany remains one of the most popular of topics at Advanced Level History, and this aspect of the topic – how Hitler came to power – is ever popular with both examination boards and students alike. It is surprising, then, that questions about this are often badly done. Too often candidates get bogged down in the detail of Weimar’s early years, 1919-23, leaving themselves little time to get beyond 1929 to the crucial years of 1930-33.
