Abstract:

In a skillful combination of biographical case study and contextual analysis, Raffael Scheck presents a readable, often thrilling, account of German right-wing politics in the two decades before the rise of the Nazis and the role played in them by Great Admiral von Tirpitz. In examining that, he explains the predicament of the conservatives during the period.

Drawing from a vast base of previously unused documents, the book traces the conspiracies and public campaigns of Great Admiral Alfred von Tirpitz, the gray eminence of the Weimar right. By focusing on Tirpitz, known as a supreme politician and manipulator of public opinion, Scheck explains the political and ideological problems contributing to the breakdown of the conservative German right and to the success of the National Socialists in the early 1930s.

Tirpitz spearheaded right-wing opposition to emperor Wilhelm II and his government in World War I. This opposition radicalized government policy, led to the fatal declaration of unrestricted submarine warfare in 1917, and undermined the German monarchy. Scheck's analysis elucidates why German rightists did so little to prevent the fall of the monarchy during the revolution of 1918 and why their vision of an alternative to Weimar democracy remained deeply flawed. This account sheds new light on German policy and naval warfare during the First World War, the origins of the revolution of 1918, the context of the Hitler Putsch, Italian military help for German rightists, the adoption of the Dawes Plan, and the presidential elections of 1925.
