SA Chief Ernst Röhm Pushes for Another Putsch

Ernst Röhm

Timeline of History

Countries

Because Ernst Röhm (Roehm), chief of the SA, begins agitating for another putsch, Adolf Hitler gives him a stark choice: accept the new policy of working within the system to undermine it or resign from the party.

Röhm resigns and retires; four years later he will accept an invitation to serve as a military advisor in Bolivia. A revolt in Bolivia in 1930 sends forces Röhm to seek sanctuary in the German embassy and, after German election victories Hitler personally calls Röhm to ask him to return.
