Title: HINDENBURG: And the Saga of the German Revolution
Description: London, United Kingdom, William Heinemann. 1935, First English. Buckram, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Translated by Eden and Cedar Paul. Paul von Hindenburg (1847 -1934) was a German field marshal, statesman, and politician, and served as the 2nd President of Germany from 1925 to 1934. "Hindenburg enjoyed a long and undistinguished career in the Prussian Army, eventually retiring in 1911. He was recalled at the outbreak of World War I, and first came to national attention, at the age of 66, as the victor at Tannenberg in 1914. As Germany's Chief of the General Staff from 1916, he and his deputy, Erich Ludendorff, rose in the German public's esteem until Hindenburg came to eclipse the Kaiser himself. Hindenburg retired again in 1919, but returned to public life one more time in 1925 to be elected as the second President of Germany. Though 84 years old and in poor health, Hindenburg was persuaded to run for re-election in 1932, as he was considered the only candidate who could defeat Adolf Hitler. Hindenburg was re-elected in a runoff but nonetheless played an important role in the Nazi Party's rise to power, dissolving parliament twice in 1932 and eventually appointing Hitler as Chancellor in January 1933."
