His war wasn't bad enough as he ordered death marches knowing he was going to be defeated. Trying to eliminate witnesses to his and "his people's atrocities was one of the final acts of his reign.
When you think of Genocide you think of Hilter. Just go to Germany now and ask around but don't be surprised if you end up in jail as the shame is still paramount on the minds of the German people.
I know Jews that have gone thru this. They tell me stories of running away as small children while planes flew overhead strafing them with gunfire. Starving in the middle of winter with no firewood, some even resorting to cannibalism to stay alive. Watching as their mothers are torn from them and then being sent to child labor camps.
Arguing over who is the worse mass murderer is not an argument anyone will win. In fact, it's not worth the argument as death, torture, pain and anguish are the only result.
Many American books, television documentaries, and Sunday sermons that preach of Hitler's "evil" have eliminated Hitler's god for their Christian audiences, but one only has to read from his own writings to appreciate that Hitler's God equals the same God of the Christian Bible.
Another one of Hitler’s great accomplishments was German economic property under his rule. Since Germany had no colonies, their most pressing concern was to find a way to trade for raw materials. Hitler circumvented the normal trade methods, Hitler found countries to trade with. To make the deal more attractive for these countries, Hitler would subsidize the exports. They could also distribute the raw materials to whoever they wanted, but most importantly they could vary the value of the mark depending on the state of the global economy. This gave Hitler and the Nazis tight control over the German economy. Between 1933 and 1936Germany prospered and their standard of living rose to be higher than that of Britain
