The Workers and Soldiers' Councils were part of an attempt to overthrow local governments at the end of World War I. These were openly Marxist organizations composed largely of conscripts (especially the sailors who had been spending the entire war in the docks) who were engaged in open mutiny. They did manage to take over some city governments for periods of time in 1918, even issuing Notgeld.
