Gustav Noske

Noske, Gustav


Born July 9, 1868, in Brandenburg; died Nov. 30, 1946, in Hannover. Figure of the extreme right wing of the German Social Democratic Party. After the beginning of World War I, a social-chauvinist.

Having become a member of the government—the Council of People’s Commissars—during the November Revolution of 1918, Noske took upon himself the role of a “bloodhound” (his own epithet). He mobilized the military forces of the counterrevolution, which in 1919 crushed the revolutionary actions of the workers of Berlin, Bremen, and other cities of Germany. From February 1919 until March 1920, he was minister of defense. However, Noske was forced to resign after the suppression of the Kapp Putsch of 1920, which was organized by the counterrevolutionary military clique that enjoyed his patronage.

The avifauna of Darwin is richer than that in most other Australian cities, says McCraie and Noske because there have been virtually no successful introductions or invasions of exotic birds; it supports a diverse array of habitats, including a large corridor of woodland and riparian forest adjacent to Darwin International Airport and defense airbase, which virtually bisects the metropolitan area; drainage has not been altered substantially; and the mangals (mangrove communities) that fringe the huge harbor and dissect the suburbs are still largely intact despite repeated attempt to reclaim them.
