The article discusses the army led by Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. It talks about how his Hitler's combat experiences, from Langemarck to Flanders, would mold his attitude toward the Wehrmacht throughout World War II, and the influence of the battles on the Somme in France in 1916 and in Flanders in 1917 on his understanding of war. Throughout the 1920s Hitler built the small National Socialist Party into an effective political organization.
