 Wolfgang Kapp Biography | Encyclopedia of World Biography
Wolfgang Kapp was born in New York City on July 24, 1858, the son of a lawyer-politician.
Kapp and Lüttwitz used the rebellion of the elite Marine Brigade Ehrhardt--which under Lüttwitz's command was defying a government order that they disband--to march on Berlin, seize the government buildings, and declare the republican government deposed on March 13.
Although its duration was brief, the putsch left the republic severely shaken and faced with new unrest in the industrial areas of the Ruhr and Saxony as well as several important power readjustments in the central and state governments.

 Clara Zetkin: The Situation in Germany (1920)
Kapp’s partisans are striving for the class dictatorship of the bourgeoisie, under which the junkers and the representatives of the larger industry might play the leading role, and which would be realised in the form of a monarchist power by means of the military apparatus.
The partisans of Ebert desire a dictatorship of the bourgeoisie under which the leading and ruling role would be played by the representatives of other branches of industry, of commercial and financial capital, and which would take the form of a bourgeois democracy.
The masses understood clearly that it was not the bourgeois democracy, nor the harmonious political “collaboration” of the exploited and the exploiters; that should be the object of their struggle, but that this object, both in the present and in the future, must be the establishment of a proletariat class-dictatorship.

And General von Seeckt was just as loyal to the right - as in the Kapp Putsch - as to the left - the Communist revolt in the Ruhr, for example - always supporting the constitution of the Weimar Government.

Kapp was a failure and a very stupid one at that, a very stupid putsch which could never succeed.
