How did Hitler go from teenage loner to German national hero and F³hrer? This episode explores inside the mind of a dictator as Hitler tightens his iron grip on Germany and turns his sights to conquest. The F³hrer had ambitious plans to restore Germany to greatness. But to fulfill his vision, he had to inspire his country's people to follow him without question, and conceal his true motives for expansion from the world. Leading Hitler experts investigate his mindset during the defining moments of his first four years in power, starting with his ambush of Germany's World War I victors when he ripped up the Treaty of Versailles and declared that Germany was to re-arm. As Hitler's vision of himself as heroic leader grew, his extraordinary self-indulgence is revealed and proven in the case of the Berghof, the simple Bavarian farmhouse that he turned into a state-of-the-art mansion worthy of a Hollywood celebrity.
