Germany was not allowed to join the League of nations until 1926. Germany was greatly disadvantaged, because it couldn’t protect it’s citizens from outside threats, and was humiliated due to the rigorous demands of the treaty of Versailles, and the terrible loss of the war. Germany was no longer seen as powerful by the other nations, since it couldn’t even join the league of nations until 7 years after it was established. The United States, the nation that created the League of nations abandoned it to focus on itself. Which didn’t raise much question when Hitler ordered the German delegates to leave the League of nations that they were only a part of because they forced themselves in.
Document B mentions how the army members was reduced to only 100,000. This increased the feeling of being unsafe. The citizens needed a strong leader to take control, which was where Hitler came in place. D. They lost employees and soldiers causing Hitler to take
Second, the Nazi Generals had very bad information on the weather. Many of the Generals and soldiers actually weren't at there post when the invasion began. Most of them were out playing foolish war games because the Nazi meteorologist told the Generals the weather would be too bad for an invasion until mid-June. Because of those two meteorologists that made two different suggestions the Allied Forces came away with the win on D-Day (Bastasch). Everyone knows that the D-Day victory allowed the Allied Forces to finally begin taking back France and gave us a stronghold to begin the long battles fighting
Now that The Berliners were isolated from the world, they couldn’t get any supplies and the sectors only had enough coal to last 45 days and food to last just 36 days. West Berlin relied entirely on their allies to transport supplies into the capital or city or something. The Western Powers generally transported supplies by ways of trucks and railway. Democracy was becoming too strong so the Soviet Union thought that they could drive the Western Powers out of West Berlin. They thought that if they could block any way of the allies from coming into West Berlin by land, they would eventually give up and stop supporting them.
Hitler stunned Europe with the speed and efficiency of the German attack on Poland. Hitler’s Blitzkrieg or "Lightning war" used armored columns, called Panzer divisions, supported by airplanes and also each Panzer division was reinforced with 300 tanks with accompanying forces and supplies. The forces of the blitzkrieg quickly broke through Polish lines and occupied Poland in almost four weeks. Full-scale war in Europe started at dawn on September 1, 1939, when Germany used the newly formed Blitzkrieg tactics and military strength to invade Poland, to which both the
Adolf Hitler had gained full and total control over Germany by 1934. At this point, nothing could stand in the way of him being the Führer of Germany, a single-party state. If one looks to other countries, to see the ways in which one ruler rose to power of a single-party states, one will discover that it does not happen overnight. Following the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, it took Stalin and the Communists five whole years to gain total and utter control of Russia. But the Bolshevik Revolution itself took advantage of the right conditions in Russia, in order to insure success.
Germany was basically forced to take credit for the entire war, and was forced to pay $33 billion marks in reparations due to Parts VIII and IX of the Treaty (originally, they were supposed to pay $63 billion marks, but the amount was lowered). Germany was not allowed to participate in the discussion, so all of the decisions (including Article 231, which stated that Germany claimed full responsibility for the war along with its allies) were made without it’s input or opinion. Along with these drastic measures, Germany was also not allowed to join the League of Nations (Part 1 of the Treaty),
In response, Russia formally ordered mobilization in the four military districts facing Galicia, its common front with the Austro-Hungarian empire. That night, Austrian artillery divisions initiated of Belgrade across the Danube River. The international crisis that began with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo on 28 June 1914 and culminated in the British declaration of war on Germany on 4th August is referred to as the July crisis. In these five years decisions were made that led to the outbreak of a European war which soon escalated into a world war of unprecedented scale. If the assassination had not taken place, war would never have happened when it did, tensions were high at that time thus it ended into world war.
They felt like the Allies had forced it upon them. They called it a dictated peace - ‘Diktat’. This was partially true; Germany had been allowed no negotiation and the Allies had given the German government five days to accept the treaty, and if they refused to do so, they threatened to invade Germany and go to war again. Many Germans would have preferred to fight the Allies and for this reason, those who signed the Treaty of Versailles became known as the November Criminals. However, it was clear that they had no choice; Germany was obviously incapable of undergoing more war.
On June 17 1940, The French signed an armistice and pulled out of World War 2, after being defeated by Hitler’s Nazi Germany which had conquered most of Western Europe in less than two months. But British Prime Minister Winston Churchill rallied his stubborn people, and out-manuovered those politicians who wanted to negotiate with Adolf Hitler. But Britain’s success in continuing the war very much depended on the RAF Fighter Command’s agility to thwart the Luftwaffe’s efforts to gain air superiority, This then would be the first all air battle in history. The Germans had poor intelligence and little idea of British vulnerabilities. They wasted most of July waiting for a British surrender and attacked in august.
