THE EVENTS OF MUNICH PUTSCH

- Hitler decided to rebel because the Nazi Party was as strong and large as ever, the SA was a large army, the Weimar Republic was losing control of Germany and he believed that the key nationalist politicians would support him.

- Hitler arranged a rebellion with Kahr and Lossow, but they canceled on 4 November 1923.

- But Hitler already had 3,000 storm troopers (SA), unemployed young men and ex soldiers ready to fight.

- On 8 November 1923 and 600 SA stormed into a meeting and forced Kahr and Lossow to agree to rebel

- On 9 November 1923 Hitler and his Nazi’s went into Munich to rebel, but Kahr had already called the police and reinforcement... in the end 16 Nazi’s got killed.

Hitler's planning was poor and he overestimated the extent of support; within the police, army, local government and amongst civilian members of the public.
He mistakenly believed that the army would treat his attempted overthrow of the Weimar government as favourably as they had the attempt by the Ehrhardt Brigade friedkorp division and would not oppose him with weapons.
However Hitler had severely miscalculated, he did have the initial support and endorsement of General Ludendorff but the police still shot at his men.
Over a dozen nazis were killed and Hitler himself wounded in the gunfire.

Of course, even if the beer hall putch had benefited from more short term success it is likely that it would have gone the same way as the attempted coup by the friedkorps and been brought down by a general strike.

Munich Putsch: During 1921-1923 the Nazi party had become more popular. They had their own private army (the SA) and support from Ludendorff (German General) and Goring (Military Leader). Hitler believed that after hyperinflation and the invasion of the Ruhr was the perfect time to cause an uprising. Hitler wanted to replace the Weimar Republic with a strong central government. Hitler stormed into a Beer Hall in Munich and declared he was taking over the city. The three main speakers were forced at gun point to promise Hitler they would support him. Ludendorff was meant to keep them captive but he let them go instead. They alerted the police. The next day when the Nazis marched into Munich they were stopped and blocked by the police. 16 Nazis and 3 policemen were killed. Hitler was shot and arrested along with Ludendorff and the other leaders. The army stayed loyal to the government. The Munich putsch was both a short term failure but a long term success. The failures were; Hitler failed to seize power, as the army and police took over; 16 Nazis were killed, less support; Hitler was arrested, slowed down the Nazi party; army and police didn't support the Nazis, overestimation of the support he would have; Hitler was not allowed to speak in public again until 1927; the Nazi party was banned for a while. The successes were; Hitler got a 5 year prison sentence but only had to serve 9 months; Hitler became an international celebrity, many people heard about the putsch; he used his trial to put forward Nazi ideas; He wrote his book 'Mein Kampf'; Hitler changed his tactics and tried to seize power by democracy instead; His trial had extensive publicity
