The fall of Germany

By Adam Haines


On November 3, 1918 the collapse of Germany began and was beginning to unravel. On November 3, 1918 AustriaHungary surrendered to the allies. German sailors came together and were against government authority. This resistance spreaded quickly. On November 9, socialist leaders in the capital, Berlin, established a German republic. The Kaiser had given up the leadership. Although there were no allied soldiers on German territory, Germany was too exhausted to continue with the war. On November 11, 1918 Germany agreed to a cease – fire and signed the armistice.
