The Freikorps were a group of former soldiers who had fought in the First World War, but due to the military restrictions placed on Germany by the Treaty of Versailles were unemployed.
Many had held onto their weapons, remained loyal to the Kaiser and supported right wing parties, meaning that they hated the communists.
When the Spartacist Revolt broke out, they were organised by Ebert and told to suppress the uprising.
After the Spartacist Revolt there were about 250,000 Freikorps members.
