Kapp Putsch : Nazi Germany
In March 1920, Herman Ehrhardt, a former naval commander led a group of Freikorps soldiers to take control of Berlin. Ehrhardt was protesting against the decision by Friedrich Ebert and his government to accept the Treaty of Versailles.
Wolfgang Kapp, a right-wing politician, accepted Ehrhardt's offer to form a new government.The Kapp Putsch failed to win support from the German Army and was brought to an end when the trade unions in Berlin called a general strike.
