BEER HALL PUTSCH HITLER
(1923)

Hitler started his career as the big dumb Nazi by trying to
be a big dumb Nazi revolutionary in the Beer Hall Putsch.
On November 8, 1923, in Munich, he and fellow big
dumb Nazis attempted to seize power by force.

He failed.

He and some other big dumb Nazi were sentenced to
five years in prison at Landsberg am Lech.
Hitler served only nine months. The alone time gave him
the time to write Mein Kampf.

After Landsberg, he gave up on taking over Germany by
revolution and decided on a course of doing it legally.

It worked.

After that, he became known as “Adolf Legalite.”
It means “Adolf the legal one.”
