Importance Of Hitler's Rise To Power

It is an undisputed fact that war brings peace: made obvious through many feats within history. Although many struggle with this fact, due to the stigma that surrounds war. As a result of this stigma, it is common for people to focus exclusively on the immoral aspects of war without considering the positives. Typically, Western society does not contemplate how altered our culture would be without war. We do not focus on the fact that our tranquil civilization has been forged through war.
