HITLER'S STEPS

BLUSTER, BLUFFS, BLITZKRIEG, AND BLUNDERS

Original press photos from the time period trace the Fuhrer's aggression from his rise to power in 1933 until the invasion of Russia in 1941. His Bluster in Germany covers the Nuremburg Nazi Rallies, 1936 Olympics in Berlin, and other propaganda events. His Bluffs show how Hitler exploited the fear of another world war to expand into the Rhineland, Austria, and Sudetenland without a fight from 1936-1938. Blitzkrieg photos recall the lightning-fast invasions of Poland, Denmark, Norway, Holland, Belgium, and France from 1939-1940. Then Hitler's Blunders recount the mistakes made in the Battle of Britain (1940), and the invasions of Yugoslavia and Russia (1941) leading to Hitler's eventual defeat.
