May 21, 1995 (Sunday) issue of Los Angeles Times published (on pages M2 & M6)
article by Stanley I. Kutler titled "For Revisionist, Nothing Is Ever Over"
from which I include the following excerpt:

"Adolf Hitler rose to power, to some extend, on the notion that Germany had
not been defeated on any battlefield in 1918, but rather had been the victim
of a ""stab in the back"" by Jews and communists at home"

-- Can anybody knowledgeable in history explain to me please, what was that
""stab in the back""?
