The year was 1923. A war veteran by the name of Adolph Hitler had a plan and if everything went well, he would finally be able to lead his people, the Nazi Party, to rise to power. His plan was a risky one, and if it went wrong, it could cost him everything. His plan? Seize control of Bavarian ruled Munich.
At the time, Germany was under a state of severe disrepair. World War I had ended in disaster for the Germans and those who were loyal to Germany could not believe the fact that the German government had surrendered at the Treaty of Versailles. Hitler, like many other nationalists, believed that Germany was a superior force and the idea of surrender caused his blood to boil in anger. He had fought in a war for supremacy, the mere fact that his people were now being forced to deal with the costly reparations and embarrassment of the first war did not rest well with him.
