Example text

The Weimar president left Berlin and fled to Dresden, where he ordered a general strike to be undertaken in the capital. This decision was a masterstroke, as it paralysed the once-threatening uprising and it only lasted a total of five days. Ebert was also lucky that in 1918 he had brokered the Ebert-Groener pact with the German army, which meant there was no danger of the military overthrowing the government. The deal made him unpopular with socialists, who saw the armed forces as the enemy of the revolution, and the deal ensured the army would continue to meddle with political affairs through the years of the republic.

Communist Russia was beginning to be seen as the biggest ideological threat to the USA, Britain and France, so along with Italy and Belgium, the Dawes Committee was created to help the Weimar Republic rise again. Negotiations saw the French and Belgians soon leave the Ruhr, and Germany’s national bank, the Reichsbank, was closely monitored by the group of former World War I allies.
