In the first of two episodes, I join Mr W of the GCSE History Revision Podcast to talk about the rise of Hitler.
In November 1923, a bunch of political chancers launched an attempted coup - a putsch - from a beer cellar. A collection of ex-soldiers and political monomaniacs led by a failed artist, they thought they could repeat Mussolini's March on Rome. Who were they?
In this episode we look at the early history of the National Socialist German Workers' Party - the Nazis - and the causes of the Beer Hall Putsch. We look at the events of the failed rebellion and then look at the consequences for Hitler, the Party and Germany as a whole.
