German Army General. He served on several General Staffs in World War I, when he was awarded the Pour le Merite (Blue Max), and was appointed Adjutant General of the Reichswehr in 1920. He was responsible for ordering the suppression of Hitler's so-called Beer Hall Putsch in Munich in 1923. He helped oversee the rearming of the Wehrmacht, but the Nazis forced his dismissal in 1926. However, he was elected to the Reichstag in 1930 and became pro-Nazi. He later served as military advisor to China, and authored several books on military history and politics.
