Die Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei
, popularly known as the Nazi

as National Socialist German Workers' Party
. Made blatant

The N.S.D.A.P. was eventually ruled by Adolph Hitler, who led the Nazis to control Germany---and most of Europe---during the 1930s and 1940s. For a history of the NSDAP, see Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.
