November 8, 1923

Support from the army: Hitler had developed a close relationship with Ludendorff (former army leader). Hitler knew Ludendorff would be able to persude the army to help the Nazi's.Support from the Bavarian government: Hitler knew Bavarian leaders had already been plotting against the Reich government.

Characters:Hitler: leader of the Nazis and the putsch.Ludendorff: former army leaderGustav Kahr: head of the Bavarian governmentOtto von Lossow: Bavarian army officer

Successes: The Munich putsch launched the Nazi's onto national scene, and brought hitler into the public eye. This putsch became a building block for the Nazi's success.Failures: The putsch was easily crushed, and some people believe it showed how powerless the Nazi's really were. Looking at these two arguments. it shows that the Munich putsch could be considered both a success or failure, depending on which point you consider the most important. While the putsh failed overall, it was successful in launching the Nazi's into the beginning of their recognition, whiched help with their success years later.
