The freikorps were a consequence of the 1918 Armistice. This book, originally a dissertation from the post-WWII period, is one of the very few available on the topic. While the freikorps generally held themselves patriots, they were brutal nationalists incredulous that they had failed to catapult Germany to world domination. They agitated violently to a return of imagined values that had been abandoned by the effete bourgeoisie during and after WWI. The author called the freikorps landsknechts, which I identified as soldiers of the Renaissance, known for their colorful costumes. This identification highlights what both were: barely mercenaries but wholly pirates. These freebooters inevitably filled the ranks of the SA and SS. At length, they were too rootless for Hitler who massacred the SA leadership during the Night of the Long Knives in an effort to consolidate his hold on Germany. At base the book is a good read of a period that bred the violence and terror of daily life during the Weimar and Nazi periods.
