Hitler was arrested two days later and was charged with treason.The failure of the “Beer Hall Putsch” brought Hitler his first national publicity. He was arrested and, after a 24-day trial, sentenced to five years in Landsberg fortress. (Hitler's Festungshaft sentence was the mildest of the three types of jail sentence in German law at the time.) On December 20, 1924, Hitler was released from prison having served only nine-months.

The outcome of the Beer Hall Putsch was the development and furthering of Nazi propaganda.

Result of the Munich Putsch

The Munich Putsch was a as a result:

  1. The Nazi party was banned , and Hitler was prevented from speaking in public until 1927.
  2. Hitler went to prison where he wrote 'Mein Kampf'. Millions of Germans read it, and Hitler's ideas became very well-known.
  3. Hitler decided that he would never come to power by revolution; he realised that he would have to use constitutional means , so he organised:
    • the Hitler Youth
    • propaganda campaigns
    • mergers with other right-wing parties
    • local branches of the party, which tried to get Nazis elected to the Reichstag
    • the SS as his personal bodyguard, which was set up in 1925 It was this strategy of gaining power legitimately that eventually brought him to power.
