The policy was based on the League of Nations dealing with any countries, which were too powerful, but as the League of Nations failed, so did the ... ... middle of paper ... ...horrors. The British people also did not want war, and so were pressurising Chamberlain to avoid it. And at this time, Britain was unable to afford to rearm due to economic pressure. But the majority of these reasons are hardly to do with Chamberlain personally, as they had been forced upon him. In 1939 Chamberlain had given the Sudetenland to Hitler, this gave Hitler more confidence to attack more countries and to spread out further.
Instead, it placed a “war guilt” blame on Germany, which prevented a long-lasting peace and enraged the German people. "No postwar German government believed it could accept such a burden on future generations and survive …" (Paxton 153) Germany was forced to pay heavy reparations and encounter hyper-inflation. Adolf Hitler attempted a coup d’état against the republic, to establish a Putsch similar to Mussolini's. ("Beer Hall Putsch (Munich Putsch). ")Although he failed, Hitler was then recognised as a national hero, whom gained public support from Germany.
Hitler's use of the SA forced people into voting for him. Hitler knew he could not keep these promises, but he made the People of Germany believe him, he was able to touch people's emotions, his rally's created excitement and positivness in the German people. Hitler was their last chance to help restore Germany to her to respectability and powerfulness. Hindenburg seeing Hitler's popularity grow, had to think of something to protect the Weimar but at the same time keep control of Hitler. There are many reasons for Hitler being made Chancellor.
Going around saying this will make people feel inferior and think the Germans have no authority over them, this caused conflicts. Hitler thought that the Treaty of Versailles should be cancelled and land taken from Germany must be returned. This led to problems as they were demanding land, which not only is against the Treaty's wishes, but will make then a lot stronger when or if future wars do happen. He said that all people of German blood, including many in Austria and Czechoslovakia, must be allowed to live in Greater Germany. This led to another cause of the war because people would not have been happy if Hitler stole parts of other countries where German people lived.
The worst aspect of the Treaty was that it was a reminder to the Germans of their defeat in the First World War and their humiliation by the Allies. His promise to the German people was that if he was the leader of Germany he would reverse this. By the time Hitler came to power, some of these terms had already been changed. The largest if these was Germany no longer had to pay reparations. However, most of the conditions were still in place.
To claim Germany is solely responsible for World War I is completely unrealistic as it was Austria-Hungary who declared war on Serbia starting a chain of events resulting in a war involving most of Europe. However Germany's claims that the attacking Russia was an act of self defence was not completely true as Germany was in no direct danger and it is likely that Austria-Hungary plight was an excuse to take on Russia. Another main term in the Treaty of Versailles was the reparations (compensation) that the allies claimed they were owed for the destruction caused by the war, which the allies ultimately considered to b... ... middle of paper ... ...as another that was harsh on Germany, but you could see the allies reasoning behind it. The Germans view that the clause destroyed Germany's global power and economy is justified, however the term was vital to prevent Germany from a global power and danger to everyone. In conclusion, Germany had many complaints about the Treaty of Versailles.
Adolf Hitler’s military tactics, poor leadership skills, and actions caused him to lose World War II. Hitler’s objective was to gain world power. He was willing to risk everything for Germany to become the most powerful country. According to Richard Overy, a British historian, “If the German people are not prepared to engage in its own survival, so be it: then it must disappear!” (538). Hitler was also willing to sacrifice Germany to attain world control and victory during World War II.
Practical Considerations Outweighed Ideology in Foreign Policy in Relation to Germany from 1933-1941 Adolf Hitler was made Chancellor of Germany in 1933, and had a practical set of objectives on how to re-establish Germany as a super power once again. Bullock argued, ‘Hitler had clearly identified aims’. Treaty of Versailles shattered the whole of Germany and Hitler saw it as a national humiliation, he promised to reverse the treaty and restore Germany’s borders. Hitler dreamed of building a vast German Empire sprawling across Central and Eastern Europe. Lebensraum could only be obtained and sustained by waging a war of conquest against the Soviet Union: German security demanded it and Hitler's racial ideology required it.
The economy during his time period was substandard. Because of Hitler trying to prove that he was going to make the world better, people believed in him and shadowed his lead. “Among these dictators was Adolf Hitler, who called on the German masses to restore the national glory that had been damaged by defeat in 1918. He urged German scorn democratic rights and roo... ... middle of paper ... ... and fascism offered bold new approaches to modern politics. These ideologies maintained that democracy was effeminate and that it wasted precious time in building consensus among citizens.
Hitler's Rise Due to Treaty of Versailles The Treaty of Versailles contributed to Hitler's rise by being the most hated treaty ever brought about. The Treaty ruined any chance of Germany regaining dignity after World War One. The German people didn't believe they had lost the war or should be blamed for the war, so when the Treaty gave them a term they had to agree with e.g. You must take the blame for starting the war, they felt the terms were unfair. Also what was unfair the German's were not there when the terms where drawn up, so this made them unhappy but they also felt the terms were hypocritical and unjust.
