examination of hitler and napoleon

In any two people you will find similarities and differences. But no two people could be as
similar as Hitler and Napoleon, and yet so different. In this report you will read about their
similarities and differences in power, characteristics, military tactics, beliefs, and much
more. Don't take my word for it, read the report.

Napoleon – First Consul. Once in power Hitler and Napoleon wanted to expand their
territory. So theybuilt up large armies. Napoleon – 600,000 troops and Hitler 10,000,000
troops both large for their time. When they had this strong force they attacked the rest of
Europe and North Africa. They brought great destruction to Europe and wiped out almost
an entire generation of young men. After their conquest of Europe was done, which both
accomplished, they set their sights on what would be the turning point for both of them,
Russia.Hitler and Napoleon both decided to attack wasJune. This could not be a worse
time, than actually attacking in the middle of the cold, harsh Russian winter itself. The
Russian Climate did not give them enough time to win a war like they would …
