This report traces Germany's re-armaments under Hitler and links them towards his expanded aggressive foreign policy. The writer shows how Hitler achieved his international victories, first by acting subtly and cleverly concealing his real motives and then his stepping up of illegal military buildup in a more open and brazen fashion. The author shows how the policies of Britain and France to appease Hitler helped him even as he became openly aggressive.

From the Paper:

"This paper looks at the formation of German's rearmament while the country, under the Treaty of Versailles, was under military restrictions. Specifically this report examines issues of the relationship between Germany's increasing international aggression under Hitler and its relationship to the rearmament. At the end of the first World War, the Treaty of Versailles was signed to limit the size of Germany's navy and army and prohibit the country from developing an air force. Hitler viewed the treaty as an affront to Germany and was determined to not only ignore the treaty and rearm Germany in secret, but also to eventually show this open rearmament and pursue aggressive preemptive warfare against regions which the country had lost in the treaty. This report traces Germany's rearmaments under Hitler and links them towards this expanded aggressive foreign policy. Other factors must also be considered however in the light of these issues, such as the inability and sometimes even unwillingness of Britain and France to do anything about Germany's rearmament during the years of Nazi power in Germany.
