World War I broke out when Hitler was a teenager, and he eagerly volunteered for the German army. He was a soldier for a few years, and while he was fighting learned a lot about German politics. He disagreed with many of the political platforms and processes of the Germans. When the war ended, he started to protest against the government. He even made a plan to overthrow the German forces. As a result of this, he was thrown in jail by the Germans and was sentenced for five years in prison. While he was being imprisoned, he wrote a book entitled "Mein Kampf" (meaning "My Struggle") which stated all of his political beliefs, including his "final solution", which he claimed would strengthen Germany as a nation and make them undefeatable.
