November 1918

The German Revolution

Robert Gerwarth

Making of the Modern World

  • Gerwarth describes the dramatic events between the last months of the war in 1918 and the Hitler Putsch in 1923 and describes how fundamentally and lastingly the November Revolution changed Germany
  • Not only did the revolution destroy the authoritarian monarchy of the Hohenzollern, it created the first German democratic national state in an astonishingly bloodless way
  • The German Revolution of 1918 is still considered a failure today and a missed opportunity that paved the way for the rise of the Nazis and catastrophy that followed
