⁣There are some songs written after the Freikorps about events that they took part in (Nachts steht Hunger) or related movements (Wandervogel Youth Movement which had volunteers on the East in 1919 as part of the Freikorps) As well as a few mentioning the Landsknecht, volunteer troops who fought across Europe.
After 1918, the term "Freikorps" referred to various —yet, still, loosely affiliated — paramilitary organizations that sprang up across Germany following the country's defeat in World War I. Of the numerous Weimar paramilitary groups active during that time, the Freikorps were, and remain, the most notable. While exact numbers are difficult to determine, historians agree that some 500,000 men were formal Freikorps members with another 1.5 million men participating informally.Amongst the social, political, and economic upheavals that marked the early years of the Weimar Republic, the tenuous German government under Friedrich Ebert, leader of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (Sozialdemokratische Partei Deutschlands, SPD), utilized the Freikorps to quell socialist and communist uprisings.[9] Minister of Defence and SPD member Gustav Noske also relied on the Freikorps to suppress the German Revolution of 1918-19 as well as the Marxist Spartacist League, culminating in the summary execution of revolutionary communist leaders Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg on 15 January 1919. The Freikorps also took part in smashing the Bavarian Soviet as well as against communists and Bolsheviks in Eastern Europe, most notably East Prussia, Latvia, Silesia, and Poland. Many Freikorps members then went on to join the NSDAP - Gregor and Otto Strasser, Rudolf Hess, Ernst Rohm, Heydrich and others.
