The 'Shabby Deal' consisted of a small clique of conservative elites Von Papen, Hindenburg and Schleicher. Who, with the support from the Reichswehr, decided to bring Hitler into a coalition government with the conservatives and nationalists. The main conspirators were Franz von Papen and General von Scheicher. Their main reasons for this momentous decision were, they were afraid of the Nazis attempting to seize power by a Putsch. They believed they could control Hitler better inside the government than if he remained outside it. The Nazi votes in the Reichstag would give them a majority, which might make possible a restoration of the monarchy, in which the Reichstag had much less power. Though it would destroy the Weimar republic, they were prepared to go ahead because it would give them a better chance of controlling the communists. On January 1933, Hitler was invited by Hindenburg to become the Chancellor with von Papen as vice chancellor. Papen believed that, 'In two months we''ll have pushed Hitler into a corner so hard that he'll be squeaking.'
Hitler was able to come to power legally even though his party had no pull in the elections anymore. The conservatives made the fatal mistake of inviting Hitler to power. Historian A. J.P. Taylor once said that, “ the answer to the question of how Hitler came to power is therefore to be found more in the actions of those Germany Politicians who were not National socialists than in those of Hitler Himself. He waited, they decided.”According to J.W. Hiden, It was perhaps inevitable that the Weimar republic collapsed, since the powerful conservative groups and the army were prepared to destroy it. Therefore Papen, Schleicher and Hindenburg must take the blame for inviting him to become Chancellor. The Shabby deal played an important role in propelling Hitler to power but was not the soul factor present at the time.
Old right Harzburg front also played an important role in Propelling Hitler to the Chancellorship. It was an attempt headed by Alfred Hugenburg, a wealthy right wing nationalists, to join together all the influence and power in Germany and persuade the President, Paul von Hindenburg, to remove Chancellor Heinrich Bruning from office. Many people were not convinced with Bruning's policies as Chancellor and believed that his socialistic principles were bringing Germany down into economic disaster. On October 1931, Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party was invited to attend the meeting at Harzburg. The Party during this time was the fastest growing political party in Weimar Germany and many of the wealthy who attended the meeting shared his strong nationalistic views. The meeting as Harzburg also attracted senior military figures, representatives of the Prussian Junkers and right wing nationalists and industrialists. During the meeting many believed that Bruning should be dismissed from his role as Chancellor. However those at the meeting failed to get what they wanted for two reasons. First, Hitler had no desire to be linked up with Hugenberg as he believed that Hugenburg wanted to use the Nazi's popularity with the voting public for his own purposes with him at the helm in the forthcoming presidential election. Therefore the hoped-for alliance of right-wing nationalists never occurred as Hitler now believed that the Nazi party alone could spearhead industrialists, lead by Gustav Krupp. He was a friend of President Hindenburg and has spent a great deal of time trying to persuade the ageing President not to replace Bruning with Hitler and for a while he was successful. Hitler's association with the Harzburg front meant that while Krupp had influence over Hindenburg, all its demands were ignored. Once Hitler had been appointed Chancellor however, Krupp changed his tune to become a very vocal supported of the new Chancellor and made generous donations to the Nazi party.
Old right the army officer core also played key roles in helping Hitler to the Chancellorship on Jan 1933. Ernst Rohm represented the militant wing of the Nazi Party and was responsible for much of this. He was the chief organiser of the party militia known as the S.A (sturmabteulung) or the Brownshirts. Rohm was one of the original founders of the Nazi party and helped Hitler secure the support of the army. Although it was still respectively small because of the restrictions of the Treaty of Versailles, the earlier work of General von Seeckt had achieved results and with this, by 1933, the morale and discipline had returned, the standing officer corps survived, and von Seeckt's goal of creating an army of leaders had been achieved. In 1933, when Hindenburg appointed Hitler as chancellor, the army did not oppose it. Nor did they take any action when, under the cover of legality, Hitler established the one-party state and abolished German democracy. Hitler placed great importance on winning the loyalty and support of the army. He promised to restore the army to its traditionally honoured place in German society as the army was essential if he was to carry out his future plan of European expansion. The old right officer core played an important role in propelling Hitler to power, however it was not the only contributing factor.
Industrialists and Junkers also played a great supporting role in propelling Hitler to power. They provided Hitler with great support and encouragement, and even some industrial tycoons gave the Nazis significant financial support. Hitler and the Nazi party used violent and abusive propaganda to enforce intimidation and shine there rivals in a bad light. This was not successful without the support from the wealthy industrialists. Men like Gustav Stresemann were denounced as traitors and help up to public ignominy. In the meantime, Hitler strengthened his ties with the Reichswehr and consequently gained the Chancellorship on Jan 1933. Industrialists and Junkers supported Hitler because of there fear of communism, and if Germany would fall to communist rule, government taking over their industries. If was these influential industrialists who put pressure on the Weimar government for change. It was through this support, which propelled Hitler into power. Though Industrialists played an important role, there was other groups involved played influential roles in propelling Hitler to the Chancellorship.
Judiciary and Civil service up to 1933 also played an important role in helping Hitler into power. Following the Beer hall putsch of 1923, where Hitler had failed at his attempt for revolution and the overthrow of the Weimar Republic. The judiciary who were still true conservatives at heart, gave him an extremely light sentence of five years, only nine months of which he had served as he too was a conservative. As the Nazi Patry (NSDAP) had become increasingly popular mainly as a result of the great depression so too had the Conservative elites supported them.
If was this combination of old and new right groups such as the shabby deal, Hitler and the Nazi party, Industrialists and Junkers, the army and the Harzburg front who consequently gave Hitler the Chancellorship on Jan 1933.
