Mr. Frederick & Adolf Hitler

The story of Animal Farm is an allegory of the Russian Revolution, and every character of the Animal Farm represents someone whose role in the Revolution whether it be Napoleon who represented Stalin or Mr. Frederick who represented Hitler ("Meet the Cast"). Mr. Frederick and Adolf Hitler had many similarities and very little differences, both of these men were neither a man of their word or trustworthy whatsoever. Even though these men were incredibly terrible beings, they played a large role in their eras. In the beginning these men did not play such a large role but as the story of their lives progressed they became key figures and affected many.

Mr. Frederick's role in Animal Farm was a small but very important one. Mr. Frederick was the owner of the neighboring farm, Pinchfield ("Mr. Frederick"). He was a very tough, shrewd, and constantly involved in conflict such as lawsuits ("Character Profiles"). Mr. Frederick was a cruel man, he had flogged an old horse to death, he starved his cows, he had killed a dog by throwing it into the furnace, he amused himself in the evenings by making cocks fight with splinters of razorblade tied to their spurs (Orwell, 141). Mr. Frederick worried about ideas of the rebellion of the Animal Farm spreading to the animals of his farm so he began to spread rumors of the animals practicing such things as cannibalism, torturing one another with red-hot horseshoes, and having their females in common ("Mr. Frederick"). Although he was not a close ally of the Animal Farm he did have secrets, such as deals he made with Napoleon ("Mr. Frederick"). One of Mr. Frederick's largest moves in the story was acquiring the timber from Napoleon, for which he paid for with bank notes. Although, Mr. Frederick turned his back on Napoleon and basically stole the timber by forging the bank notes, "Frederick had got the timber for nothing!" (Orwell, 147). Frederick also fought in a war against the Animal Farm and aided in the destroying of the windmill, which the animals worked on for over two years (Orwell, 149-154). After these events Mr. Frederick disappeared from the story and no longer was involved with any conflict of the Animal Farm.

Adolf Hitler was born in 1889, he was a very academically gifted child but his attitude did not remain the same throughout his life (Simkin, Spartacus.com). Hitler was a very religious child and for a while even considered the possibility of becoming a monk (Simkin, Spartacus.com). His father, Alois, hoped that Adolf would follow in his footsteps and join the Austrian civil service but the thought of it appalled young Adolf (Simkin, Spartacus.com). At the age of fifteen Hitler was told he would have repeat the entire year of school for doing so terrible on examinations but he hated the idea and would no longer attend school (Simkin, Spartacus.com). In 1909 Hitler was supposed to register for the military, but he did not, he was unwilling to serve for Austria, which he despised (Simkin, Spartacus.com). Although, in the outbreak of the First World War Hitler quickly joined the German military because he wanted to prove that the country of Germany was superior to all other countries (Simkin, Spartacus.com). After many years Hitler became very politically involved and favored (Simkin, Spartacus.com). Later on in his life he became chancellor of Germany and eventually came to complete power over the country (Simkin, Spartacus.com). Adolf Hitler made many deals with many countries including the deal known as the Nazi-Soviet Non Aggression Pact, which was made with the Soviet Union (Simkin, Spartacus.com). The Nazi-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact stated that in the war that was soon to be, an inevitable war, the Soviet Union would remain neutral by not interfering with Germany or other countries as they fought ("German Soviet Pact"). The pact also included a Secret Protocol in which Germany gave the Soviet Union the Baltic States, for agreeing not to join the possible future war (Rosenberg, About.com). One of Hitler's main intentions of this pact was to avoid a repeat of the
