Adolf Hitler is appointed Chancellor of Germany by President Paul von Hindenburg. In celebration, SA members throughout German launch vicious assaults on communists. The Nazis, combined with the Nationalists, have just 247 Reichstag seats out of 583.

This isn't a majority and doesn't allow them to create a ruling government so the Hitler decides to gamble and seek new elections in which he hope the Nazis can achieve a majority.
