What was the Spartacist League? Why was it formed in Germany?
The Spartacist League was a revolutionary socialist group which was formed in Germany during the First World War. Gradually, it became a movement as many workers joined this movement demanding the formation of the Soviet-styled government.
As Germany was undergoing financial crisis because of their participation in the First World War, the League was formed by the people who opposed the War. They wanted to establish a Soviet-styled government in Germany. After their movement was suppressed by the Weimer republic, the Spartacists later founded the Communist Party of Germany.
