  1. The Beer Hall Putsch

  2. By 1923, the Nazi Party had over 70,000 members and was a significant force in Bavarian politics. • Included in this were the 15,000 member of the Sturm-Abteilung or SA.

  3. The SA • Private army of the Nazi Party, attracted ex-Freikorps members. • Many members were basically thugs and street bullies. • They wore distinctive brown shirts and swastika armbands. They were also known as storm troopers. • Violent street battles between SA and supporters of other political groups became a feature of German life in the 1920’s.

  4. The SA (brownshirts)

  5. The SA was led by Ernst Röhm and Hermann Göring

  6. In 1923, following the year of crisis and hyperinflation, Hitler planned a “March on Berlin” with Kahr, the head of the Bavarian state government, and Lossow, the head of the Bavarian section of the German army (the Reichswehr) • At the last minute, Kahr and Lossow got cold feet and pulled out. Hitler went ahead anyway.
