The Chancellor of Germany Adolf Hitler
Adolf Hitler became the Chancellor of Germany in the early 1930s and after taking over, Adolf Hitler began to build Germany Army. It increased by building Warships and his Airforce. Other countries like Britain and France knew what Hitler where doing and major concerns Communism was rising high and was believing that Germany was going to help in that area. In the mid-1930s, Adolf Hitler ordered his German troops to enter Rhineland even though his Army wasn’t as strong and could easily be defeated. Britain and France were not prepared to fight a war again.
Adolf Hitler had made two other important alliance and the first one was called the Rome-Berlin Axis Pact and the second one was called the Anti-Comitern Pact. They both was allied to Germany. Hitler also began to take back the land that was taken from Germany. He marched his troops to Austria where the leader of Austria had to hold a vote to see if the people of Austria want anything to do with Germany. The voting came out to be that over 80 percent of the people from Austrian wanted to Union with Germany.
The leader from Austrian also ask for aid from other countries like Italy, Britain and France for help. Adolf Hitler had made promises that he did not keep like not wanting to have a war with other countries. Adolf Hitler claimed that Britain was his main enemy and he had to defeat them. The Prime Minister of Britain met with Adolf Hitler several time to talk about reaching the Munich Agreement about preventing a war in the late 1930’s. Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain return back from Munich with signed paper from Adolf Hitler. The agreement was that Adolf Hitler can have one to the Regions of Czechoslovak only if he promises not to invade it.
Adolf Hitler was not a man of his word and he invaded the rest of the country. Adolf Hitler broke the terms of agreement. France nor Britain was prepared for war against Adolf Hitler Army neither was Prime Minister Chamberland ready for war. That Chamberland had made it known that if Adolf Hitler invade Poland. He was coming to their aid. Adolf Hitler did not invade the Soviet Union. He made it stronger continuing to fight on hoping for a victory. There were only two power house countries, The United States and The Soviet Union. The United States would allow this war to happen.
Adolf Hitler ignored his Generals advice and gambled by taking over Poland and France. He had conquered both countries in a matter of weeks. That was a mere win for Adolf Hitler and his Army. He made most of his decision on his own and not really taking the advice of anyone. Also, Rhineland was occupied by France. When the Germans marched, Adolf Hitler took a huge gamble that they would be able to reoccupy the Rhineland successfully. As it turned out to be, there were no armed response forthcoming from the French. This to have been grave consequences afterwards and allowing once more Adolf Hitler to bluff the allies. The German soldiers were under the orders to withdraw immediately if the French opened fire on them. Tragically, they didn’t which only made Hitler more courageous to seize other parts of Europe. Perhaps if the French had taken action that day, things may have turned out differently, tragically they didn’t. Taking over Rhineland was the first steps to dominate Europe.
President Franklin D. Roosevelt foreign policy was focused on moving the U.S. from isolation to intervention. The movement was to establish relation, open trade market along with the Soviet Union. It was a guarantee of peace. Adolf Hitler still became aggressive with his action. The agreement was not followed by Adolf Hitler because he marched the German troops into Prague. Adolf Hitler and his General was making plans to take over Czechoslovkia. They were relying on getting some assistance from France. Adolf Hitler continuously made demanding speeches that the Germans in Czechoslovkia will reunite again in Germany. But I think France and Great Britain was not ready to defend war.
What I have learned that the from the Munich is that, even though Adolf Hitler and Neville Chamberland had signed papers stating that their mutual desires had been resolved their difference. Adolf Hitler was not standing on his word because he went ahead with his war plans. He still invaded part of Czechoslovakia. Regarding of the first impression that Neville Chamberland got from Adolf Hitler, In spite of the hardness and the ruthlessness that I thought I saw in Adolf Hitler face, I got the impression that here was a man that I could rely upon when he had given his word.
Adolf Hitler had threatened to unleash a European war unless the Sudetenland a border area of Czechoslovakia containing an ethnic German majority was surrendered to Germany and Adolf Hitler Army. Czechoslovakia was not a party to the Munich negotiations agreement under significant pressure from Britain or France. Adolf Hitler was very determined to make decisions personally, often as possible behind people back and went against the people/General in his cabinet. Only if Adolf Hitler had listened to what the people in his cabinet had to say, the deterioration of the Eastern front could have been avoided from war.
