What would your agree and disagree points be for the following question:

How far do you agree with interpretation 1 about the Munich Putsch. Explain your answer, using both interpretations and your knowledge of the historical context. 16 marks

Interpretation 1
'The Munich Putsch was unsuccessful, and Hitler was imprisoned. The failed putsch had an important impact on the Nazi Party. Its leader was jailed, its newspaper was banned and so was the party itself.'
Interpretation 2
'The Munich Putsch has to be seen as a long term success for the Nazis. It allowed Hitler to be seen as a national leader at his trial. It allowed him to formulate his ideas for the Party in prison, and when in power, after 1933, it provided powerful propaganda.'
