The birth pangs of Nazism grew out of the death agony of the Kaiser's Germany. Defeat in World War I and a narrow escape from Communist revolution brought not peace but five chaotic years (1918-1923) of civil war, assassination, plots, putsches and murderous mayhem to Germany. The savage world of the trenches came home with the men who refused to admit defeat and 'who could not get the war out of their system'. It was an atmosphere in which civilised values withered, and violent extremism flourished. In this chronicle of the paramilitary Freikorps - the freebooting armies that crushed the Red revolution, then themselves attempted to take over by armed force - historian and biographer Nigel Jones draws on little-known archives in Germany and Britain to paint a portrait of a state torn between revolution and counter revolution. Astonishingly, this is the first in-depth study of the Freikorps to appear in English for 50 years. Yet the figures who flit through its shadowy world - men like Röhm, Goering and Hitler himself - were to become frighteningly familiar just ten years after the turmoil that gave Nazism its fatal chance.… (més)

Solid book tracing the 1918-1923 history of the Freikorps movement in post-war Germany, how the movement worked to undermine the fragile German democracy, and how it directly led to the takeover of Germany by the Nazi party. Well-organized and laid out; I did see one or two very minor glitches in the book, plus some slightly sloppy editing, but overall, recommended. ( )

Being a history of Germany's paramilitary Freikorps units which roamed the nation and to some extent its neighbors suppressing local soviets and harassing democratic politicians amid the chaos at the end of World War I. The book is annoyingly mistitled; Nazis don't appear until the final chapter, and there's certainly nothing 'brief' about this tome. That said, the author does a fine job of sorting this maelstrom into a coherent, organized, mildly interesting narrative, which is a big ask. ( )

This is a book misleadingly packaged (especially in the presentation of titles), in that it is aimed squarely at those who want to read about Hitler and the Nazi Party. In fact, it is more wide-ranging that that. It deals with the political chaos of post-World War I Germany, where right-wing paramilitaries - the Freikorps - took to the streets to combat Communist revolutionary movements or any other form of organised socialism. Hitler features in the book, but only in the closing chapters. The rest of the book is a treatise on the use of political violence and where that can end.

The fate of the Freikorps is salutory. Some came to an accommodation with the Nazi regime. Others were purged in the "Night of the Long Knives" in 1934 because of political expediency. Still others ended up in direct opposition to Hitler's rule.

A useful examination of what happens when the forces of violence and chaos are unleashed on a country: it's a genie that is very difficult to put back into its bottle.
