Elaborating on Evertonian's ideas:i would know nothing about the army, id struggle.
haha yeah he is awesomeken webb is your teacher! that's fucking awesome. That's the equivalent of having Ross Gittens as an economics teacher
Ha, 'Von Seekt thought he was a mad cunt' - he pretty much was... I can just picture the french coming up to him and going, "Hey, you've heard of that crazy little thing called the Versailles Treaty and its military limitations, right?" and he'd just state blankly and go "What ist dast?" :mad1:Army is mad ...
Talk about how they undermined the republic e.g. von seekt thought he was a mad cunt and said things like "The army, Mr President, stands behind me" and "Reichswehr does not fire upon Reischwehr" in response to Kapp Putsch. Talk about how the army put down left wing revolts but not right wing.
Talk about how it was the ARMY that RAN germany - hindenburg was an ex military guy, von seekt and von papen and bruning were all military guys. In my assessment i then talked about how it was the army that presseured hindenburg to appoint hitler.
Then bring in other factors - eco depression, social, political instability ect - BUT link these or compare these to army. e.g. my argument ran it was the army that acted as a catalyst for these other pressures which ultimately led to weimar collapse.
Wow, that would be an awesome essay! You'd just talk about the the Decree on party unity, the NEP, the Scissors Crisis and Stalin taking advantage of the Left V Right arguingRussia: please don't ask any bullshit about LEFT vs RIGHT and whatever, arghhhhh
