1924: Adolf Hitler is sentenced to five years in jail for his participation in a coup attempt known as the "Beer Hall Putsch." However, he would end up spending only nine months in jail, during which he wrote much of the first volume of "Mein Kampf," an autobiography and an exposition of his political ideology.
