Why did Hitler take over Rhineland and Sudetenland?

To one's knowledge, other than gaining land from Poland to expand from.Hitler wanted to take over Europe, and eventually the world if possible. He considered all others (everyone) in the world to be inferior to the Germans. He wanted to create a "Aryan" race of blond hair blue eyed human beings who all spoke German. Countries such as Czech/Slovak Hung, Poland, were mere stepping stones in his plans for New World Order.

What did the British and the rest of Europe do when Hitler started to take German land in central Europe?

The British and French made a pact, an alliance with Poland, that if Germany would invade, Britain and France would officially declare war on Germany.The British (at least, maybe the French too) were mainly using this as an excuse to attack Germany, they feared that they might become too powerful if they started enlarging their empire. As Poland was just an excuse for war, the British showed how little they cared about Poland in 1945.


What was Hitler's excuse to cause a War?

I'm not an expert but some of the reasons surely would have been that he wanted power. But you cant simply just ask for power and get it. He started the rumor (which is basically what it was) that the Jews were trying to take over Germany and that they should be eliminated. Because he already had high power in the German court he could quite easily convince people what he was saying is true. Hope this helps =)

What is the significance of the Sudetenland and where was it?

When the new Republic of Czechoslovakia was declared in 1918, it included an area shaped like a horseshoe around Bohemia and Moravia, with a large number of German speaking inhabitants. This area was known as Sudertenland. This German speaking Sudetenland minoirty was used as an excuse by Adolf Hitler to furt Reich-EinFauhrer ("One nation - one country - one leader.) With the co-operation of the Sudertendeautsche Partel (the Sudeten German Party) Hitler saught Sudentendeutsche Freikorps (The Sudetan German Freecorps). Disturbances initiated by the Czechoslovakian Gov't to moblilize his forces on May 20, 1938. On September 12th a huge Nazi rally was held at Nuremburg. Hitler made his famous speech that Sudetenland should be part of Germany or they would invade Czechoslovakia. On Sept. 22, 1938 the British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain flew to meet Hitler. At this meeting Hitler handed Chamberlain and ultimatum, which set out Germany's terms and Sudetenland question. Chamberlain was not successful in convincing Czechoslovakia to accept. Germany next sent an ultimatum to Czechoslovakia that the problem had to be resolved. At the same time many infantry and armoured units moved close to the Czechoslovakian border. This caused a flurry of diplomatic communication between France, England Czechoslovakia to Hitler to start negotiations. Hitler agreed to delay his invasion 48 hours and invited the British Primer Minster, the then, Dictator Benito Mussolini to Munich for further talks. The Czechoslovakian negotiators were not invited! Sept. 29, 1938 talks ended with those gathered conceding to all of Hitler's demands and was obtained to Hitler's Godesberg ultimatum was that the occupation was to be spread because the "Munich Agreement" had been signed. Returning back to England, Chamberlain muttered the now familiar phrase "Peace in our time." The curtain was now raised for the beginning of the end of the history of Sudentenland.

How did Hitler use the League of Nations as an excuse to take over territory in Europe?

hitler knew after taking Rhineland by surprise, he shouldnt take Sudetenland by the same way, so he asked for a meeting with League of nations ( which the league of nation never expected from a dictator) and asked for Sudetenland, and the league gave it to him, (appeasement). PS: as far as I know hitler didnt use the league of nation for anything else other then this.

What incidents caused the German invasion of Poland 1939?

Truthfully, Hitler wanted to occupy Poland. There was no specific incidents that caused the German Invasion. It was just part of Hitler's plan to take over all of Europe.___There was a specific incident called the Gleiwitz incident. Hitler wanted a pretext for the invasion. He sent the Gestapo disguised as Polish soldiers to attack and destroy German property along the German Polish border.This was used as an excuse to invade, giving the illusion Germany was just defending itself.


How did Germany take over Poland?

Let's start with the annexation of the Sudetenland where ethnic Germans( Sudetendeutsch) were "liberated" without a shot fired in 1938. The subsequent invasion of Czechoslovakia a couple months later was the final straw in Hitler's march toward breathing room, (Lebensraum) for Germany. The Soviets helped with the invasion of Czechoslovakia and got considerable land afterwards. In 1939 Hitler wanted more so he put a plan together to invade Poland which had a treaty with France and the UK. A staged attack on a German radio station by Germans posing as Polish soldiers called the Gleiwitz Incident was part of Operation Himmler, yes that Himmler, as an excuse to invade Poland. The Soviets helped once more in the invasion coming from the east while the Luftwaffe and Wehrmacht came in from the south and west. Poland was overwhelmed in the first demonstration of "lightning war" or blitzkrieg. Bohemia, Silesia and Polish land was again split up between Germany and the USSR. The successful invasion of Poland resulted in the beginning of WWII in Europe. Because of the treaty with Poland, Britain and France declared war on Germany on September 3, 1939. By the way, a famous Pole who was critical of Germany, Franciszek Honiok, was arrested by the Gestapo the day before the Gleiwitz Incident and his dead body was left by the Nazi's as evidence of Polish aggression. The work camp outside Munich was to use some of its prisoners in case the Gestapo could not find Honiok. So, Hitler was going to use Jewish prisoners from Dachau to start WWII. Incredible.

Why did the war occur in Europe 1914?

The heir to the throne of Austria was assassinated in Sarajevo by a Serbian student. Austria threatened Serbia with invasion using the assassination as an excuse. Russia threatened Austria because it considered Serbians to be fellow Slavs. Germany threatened Russia because it had treaties with Austria. France threatened Germany because it had treaties with Russia. Britain had a treaty to help France if she was threatened. Would you blame the student or the treaty makers?
