Munich Beer Hall Putsch During the night of November 8th 1923 Hitler and his storm troopers direct by Hermann Göring awakened a meeting in a Munich Beer Hall at which the Bavarian leaders Kahr, Lossow and Seisser attended. He then purchased these 3 high officials of the Bavarian government to some back room forced them to promise to support the Putsch from the government at gunpoint stating, "I have four shots in my pistol! Three for you, gentlemen. The final bullet for myself!" But allowed them to depart the assembly freely. Consequently they later changed their minds once free, even though Hitler had prepared his storm troopers to assist in a broader Bavarian rebellion, however whenever the leaders threatened to call off the activity, Hitler realised that he couldn't keep the storm troopers waiting no more. Hitler still believed that his storm troopers could be aided by the Bavarian army, planned a triumphal march into Munich on November 9th 1923 to catch power which later led to failure. Astonishingly, he hadn't arranged for the storm troopers to take control of the radio channels and also the telegraph offices. This meant that the national government in Munich soon heard about Hitler's putsch and gave orders for it to be crushed. As his storm troopers flew right into Munich the Bavarian military were ordered to attack Röhm and his troops and if Hitler, Ludendorff and Göring arrived to help Röhm with 3000 armed Nazis they discovered the road barricaded by Munich authorities at Odensplatz. From their refusal to prevent the Munich police fired shots into the ground in the front of the Nazis.
