After receiving a pardon from the Bavarian Supreme Court, Adolf Hitler is released from Landsberg Prison where he served time for his role in the Beer Hall Putsch. On April 1 he was sentenced to five years imprisonment by a special People's Court in Munich, but he is released after less than eight months.
During his time in Landsberg Prison, Adolf Hitler dictates to his deputy, Rudolf Hess, most of the first volume of Mein Kampf (My Struggle). It's original title is Four and a Half Years of Struggle against Lies, Stupidity, and Cowardice. Dedicated to Thule Society leader and early Nazi Party founder Dietrich Eckart, it's an autobiographical account of how he developed his current political ideology. It also explains what Hitler plans to do with Germany once he achieves power.
According to the prison governor of Landsberg:
"[Hitler] hopes the book will run into many editions, thus enabling him to fulfill his financial obligations and to defray the expenses incurred at the time of his trial."
