Mein kampf translates to “my struggle”. It was written by Adolf Hitler and began writing Mein Kampf in 1924 in Landsberg prison, following his conviction for high treason for attempting to overthrow the German weimar republic in 8-9th of November 1923 in the so-called Beer hall putsch . Although his coup failed, Hitler used his trial as a pulpit to spread Nazi propaganda. Largely unknown before this event, he gained immediate notoriety in the German and international press. The court sentenced him to five years imprisonment, of which he served only 8 months. With his political career at an all-time low, he hoped that publishing the book would earn him some money and serve as a propaganda platform to air his radical views and attack those whom he accused of betraying him and Germany.
