Extracts from this document...


Why was the Nazi Party largely unsuccessful in the 1920's? The nazi party were largely unsuccessful in the 1920's due to many varying factors. In the early 1920's the nazi party was one of many right wing splinter groups, which formed after the collapse of Imperial Germany. During the 1920's Hitler was imprisoned after the Munich putsch failing, Germany as a hole was experiencing what was best known as its "golden years". The Nazi party was only regional at this point in time and unable to gain the large support it needed and also was experiencing disunity within the party and with little structure it was ready to collapse, or was it? The Munich Putsch of 1923 was a in many was largely unsuccessful for the Nazi party. After the first failed coup Hitler with 600 SA soldiers stormed a public meeting in Munich. And on the 9th they were to march into the centre of Munich but was only to be met by the police, 16 Nazi's ...read more.


This was an unsuccessful step against the Nazi party as with as with fewer voters they had less of a hope to gain power in Germany. The problem of the Nazi party only being regional posed to be very unsuccessful too. The party was only in Bavaria, and was small; it couldn't possibly achieve the status it was hoping to gain with such a little campaign. By 1924 the Nazi's has decreased in votes and had dropped to 3 % of the votes and even later on in the 1920's dropped to an all time low to 2.8% These figures show that during the time of the 1920's that the votes for the Nazi party decreased and therefore showing that it was largely unsuccessful as a party has to be largely unsuccessful to achieve half the amount of votes than that they were getting 6 months before.

Hitler was able to persuade the judge with his strong, powerful speeches in the courtroom, to lower his sentence. Moreover in the late 1920's and early 1930's it shows that they were doing better than that of the start of the 1920's and this shows that they were having success in some area's, as if they weren't they wouldn't of had local election gains at the end of the 1920's. The Nazi Party was largely unsuccessful, as they lost votes, and voters support thought out the 1920's. They were forced to change their party's approach to a more socialist view and also lost their leader, Hitler. However they did start to build up support again towards to end of the 1920's and onwards to the 1930's but from the period of the "golden years" the Weimar republic was able to rebuild their support and overpower the Nazi party completely and that shows the most unsuccessful party of the 1920's as it was Hitler's main aim to take power over the Weimar republic so overall the Nazi party even though did have some gains were largely unsuccessful. ...read more.
