Many people believe that Hitler was mainly to blame for World War 2, and there are many different reasons for this. One reason is that Hitler deliberately broke the Treaty of Versailles by building up his army, air force and navy to around half a million as soon as he came into power. The Treaty of Versailles stated that Germany was only allowed to have a small army, 6 battle ships and no air force or tanks. By breaking these terms Hitler defied the other countries and showed that he did not care to abide by the Treaty of Versailles. To do this he also introduced conscription, forcing German men to join the army, which would show that he was preparing for a war.
Hitler also sent his troops into the Rhineland, which was also a violation of the Treaty of Versailles. The troops were given orders to retreat if France offered any resistance, which shows that Hitler was prepared for France to retaliate. It also shows that Hitler was just trying to see how far he could push Britain and France and to test just how much he could get away with.
Hitler then pushed even further by moving his troops into Austria and sets up a rigged poll that says that 99 per cent of Austrians wanted to be part of Germany, so he invaded and took power. This was also a deliberate violation of the Treaty of Versailles. Hitler met up with Chamberlain to discuss giving Germany the Sudetenland, and Germany is given the Sudetenland as long as Hitler promises that it was his last demand. He then went against his word and took over the rest of Czechoslovakia. Hitler then formed an alliance with his enemy, Russia, in the hope that it would prevent Britain and France for going up against him and beginning a war. This meant that Britain and France were threatened by this alliance and they were pushed by this to honour their alliance with Poland and state that they would declare war on Germany if they invaded Poland. Hitler, knowing this, then triggered the war by invading Poland.
