introductionThe beginning of the end of the German Empire can be dated to September 29, 1918. Because on this day the "Kronrat" met in Berlin, which, in addition to Kaiser Wilhelm II, the Chief of the Supreme Army Command (OHL), Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg, his right hand, General Erich Ludendorff, Reich Chancellor Count von Hertling and the State Secretary for Foreign Affairs , Admiral Paul von Hintze. This body deliberated on the consequences of the fact that the world war was finally lost because of the human and material superiority of the opponents, and decided on drastic measures.
Revolution from aboveA quick "revolution from above" - so Hintze reports - should prevent a "chaos" and a "revolution from below" (as in Russia). This meant that for the first time an imperial government supported by the Reichstag (the parliament elected according to the universal male suffrage) was envisaged. It was also decided that the new government would "immediately" submit an offer of an armistice to the allied opponents of the war.
What ulterior motives, above all, the OHL harbored, Ludendorff expressed to his staff officers on October 1, 1918: "But I have asked His Majesty to bring those circles to the government to whom we owe it mainly for us have come so far. [...] They should now make the peace that must now be made. They should now eat the soup that they brought us to. "
What were meant - after the split of the Social Democrats into the left "Independent Social Democratic Party of Germany" (USPD) and the moderate "Majority Social Democratic Party of Germany" (MSPD) in 1916 - the MSPD, the left-wing liberal "Progressive People's Party" and the Catholic "Center Party", the formed an opposition majority in the Reichstag ("majority parties"). For many years they had called for a democratization of the authoritarian empire; They had supported the war, but since 1917 they had jointly spoken out in favor of an honorable "peace of understanding" without loss of territory and compensation.
