Hitler and Rohm conflict

Extracts from this document...


Essay on Hitler and Rohm coming to conflict. In this Essay I will be discussing of Hitler and Rohm coming to conflict and how the two came to a point from two powerful men who helped each other to power, to two men who saw each other as threats for power, as it was clear that both fought for power and that at some point one of the two would plot to stop one another from getting to power. As Rohm showed signs with the SA to take Hitler's power and with Rohm not agreeing to Hitler's terms it was likely that the two would have conflicted.

In conclusion it is obvious that Hitler and Rohm got to a point where they saw each other as enemies and even though they worked together in the beginning they started to fight for power, as Rohm wanted to extend his SA with the German army to make himself more powerful whilst Hitler wanted to stop this, as it would make Rohm more powerful than Hitler. As well as enemies they were also threats especially for Hitler Rohm was threatening Hitler's position, as it wouldn't take much with the intelligence and skill of Rohm to overcome Hitler to become a more powerful person. ...read more.
