The rank of Führer, meaning total leader or total Dictator in English, was the highest rank that a person could hold in Nazi Germany; holding it made a person the leader of Germany. The most notable holder of the title was Adolf Hitler.
List of People who held the rank Edit
Adolf Hitler proclaimed himself to be the Fuhrer because of his position of Vorsitzender (Chairman) of the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazi Party). After Hitler's suicide, there was a struggle among his inner circle as to who should hold the title, which was officially granted to Karl Doenitz, the head of the Navy to replace Adolf's Leadership whilst Adolf Was Dead in 1945.
