As Hitler signed a non-aggression pact with soviet army they attacked and captured Poland. This led to Britain and France going to war against Germany because they fell threatened that Germany was overtaking east of Europe and there had to be done something about it. All this led to World War II. It was known more for Hitler war because Germany had a lot part in it but at the end of the war Germany has no chance of winning the war so Hitler suicides and Germany surrender on May 8, 1945.
This plan failed and in nineteen- thirty nine Stalin signed the Nazi-Soviet pact with Hitler. This move increased anti-Soviet hostility in the west, however delayed the onset of war between Russia and the United States. The war between Germany and France did not last long. The Nazi defeated France quickly, enabling Germany to invade the Soviet Union. When Germany invaded Russia it united the Soviets with Western Europe.
In return, Great Britain and France declared war on Germany on September 3, 1939. Hitler made an announcement to start a pact with the Soviet Union. As the Germans occupied Poland, the Soviets invaded the eastern part of the country with plans to take Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania in 1940. They also took Finland in 1941 and disgrace the Russian military. Japan was also changing things in the Pacific.
Hitler planned on reintroducing conscription (which he did in 1936) and remilitarising the Rhineland. Hitler wanted to get back Germany’s territory as well as unite with Austria (Anschluss). He wanted German minorities in other countries, e.g. Czechoslovakia to rejoin Germany, and provide Lebensraum (living space) for the German people by taking over land in the east. This would help create One Reich and being back Germany’s self determination which was taken away from them at the end of World War 1.
Britain and France pledged to help Poland if Germany was to attack. Unfortunately helping Poland would include the invasion of Germany, which neither country was willing to do. Great Britain and France had hoped the Soviet Union would help protect Poland. But Hitler and Stalin shocked the world when they became allies. On August 23, 1939, Germany and the Soviet Union signed a nonaggression pact; in which both agreed not to attack each other.
Hitler convinced the people it was the Jews faults. He classified them as "stingy" and "rich" he wrote that the Jews ratted out the Germans. In 1933 the National Socialist German Workers Party elected Hitler chancellor. In the next year things become worse and worse for the Jews. Laws were passed stating non- Arrieans could not hold government jobs, Jews were expelled f... ... middle of paper ... ...s and still is affecting people today.
With the signing of the Treaty of Versaille, Hitler blamed the defeat of Germany on the Jews, Communists, and the weak Weimar government. This is the government which held power following Germany's defeat. With his strong hatred for the Communists, the Jews, and the weak government, Hitler vowed to fight back, and to change the terrible things, which he believed, had been done to Germany.After the War, Hitler found a job as a prison guard sixty miles north from Munich. The job was boring, but it provided him with security, food, shelter, and something to do. When the job ended, Hitler went back to Munich, where he was offered a more challenging job due to his great dislike for the Communists who were provoking revolution in cities throughout Germany.
The Nazi-Soviet pact was then signed. On the first of September 1939 Hitler entered Poland and used the Blitzkrieg strategy to successfully enter Poland. Chamberlain sent a warning to Hitler informing him if he did not withdraw from Poland by 11am on the 3rd of September 1939 they would declare war on Germany. Hitler failed to meet the deadline continuing to invade Poland further and on the 3rd of September both France and Britain declared war on Germany.
Churchill fought against these odds during his career in politics as Prime Minister to England. In Churchill’s speech against the Treaty of Munich in October 1938, he explained and predicted the faults and failures of the treaty (Johnson 355). Later, after the fall of France to Germany in June 1940, he went on to persuade Britain of the possibility of their invasion (Johnson 349). Churchill, therefore, through his election and recognition of the political placement and failures to bring peace in Europe, was able to raise Europe’s survival rate against Hitler. Recognizing that most of Europe was socialist, Churchill worked to remove England from the labor party in order to run over the rise of totalitarianism.
