On the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918, the armistice took effect on the Western front. One year after the victory of the Russian Revolution, the German proletariat had entered the scene of world history and brought an end to "the Great War". Austria-Hungary soon followed suit and the "old regime" had collapsed.

After the Russian revolution, the German workers could have taken power on several occasions, only to be thwarted by their leaders, the Social Democrats who openly betrayed and the Communists who unfortunately made a number of tragic mistakes. The defeat of the German revolution led to the barbaric regime of Hitler. Pierre Broué provides an account of those events that all fighting workers and youth should read.
