  5. 5. 1936 – Hitler marched his soldiers into the Rhineland (not allowed by ToV!)<br />I hope Britain and France don’t try to stop me as I’m weak.<br />No problem he is simply “marching into his own backyard”.<br />
  6. 6. 1938 – In Germany Hitler has been steadily building his army.

Let him have his army.<br />
  7. 7. 1938 – Hitler turned his attention to the south. He wanted to unite with Austia (ANSCHLUSS)<br />The German-speaking country of Austria should be part of a ‘greater Germany’!<br />
