Munich Putsch

On the night of 8 November 1923, Hitler and 600 storm troopers burst into a meeting that Kahr and Lossow were holding at the local Beer Hall. Waving a gun at them, Hitler forced them to agree to rebel - and then let them go home. The SA took over the army headquarters and the offices of the local newspaper.

The next day, 9 November 1923, Hitler and his Nazis went into Munich on what they thought would be a triumphal march to take power.

 However, Kahr had called in police and army reinforcements. There was a short scuffle in which the police killed 16 Nazis.

 Hitler fled, but was arrested two days later.
