Introduction

In what ways did the events of November 1923 change the political views of Hitler and the policies of the Nazi Party in the years up to 1930? The events of November 1923 changed the political views of Hitler and the policies of the Nazi Party. Before the Putsch Hitler was known locally and only in Bavaria.
