10. No apologies for Hitler, but
As a citizen of Austria-Hungary (one of the possessions of the Habsburg Empire), he was under no obligation whatsoever to enlist in the German Army (separate empire under Kaiser Wilhelm-Hohenzollerns). Whether enlisting when he didn't have to makes him courageous or a fool, I'll leave to DU to decide, but contrast with Bush\Cheney couldn't be starker.

Not even his firecest critics deny that he served honorably during WWI. (They didn't just give away those Iron Crosses back then.)
