Results of the Four Year Plan

Results of the Four Year Plan



The Second Four Year Plan was introduced in 1936 and the results of it showed that in many areas it failed to achieve its targets. The plan was meant to make Nazi Germany self-sufficient in all industrial goods so that the country was free from pressure asserted by overseas nations if they chose to curb Germany’s expansionist policy that Hitler wanted to start as soon as was possible. The Four Year Plan was put under the control of Hermann Goering and the statistics show that in some areas of industry Goering set absurdly high target figures that Nazi Germany simply was not in a position to hit – such as the production of synthetic oil.
