Time Magazine -- Erich Ludendorff -- November 14, 2023

Time, November 19, 1923

During World War One, General Erich Ludendorff served as Chief of Staff for Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg. In time, the two men ruled Germany in a de facto military dictatorship. After the war, Ludendorff became involed in extreme right wing, anti semitic and anti Roman Catholic politics. He was associated with the early Nazi movement. I suspect that Ludendorff was on the cover of Time Magazine because of his involvement with the 8-9-November-1923 Beer Hall Putsch. He later broke with the Nazis when he got involved with bizarre right-wing conspiracy theories.
