Why did Hitler rearm Rhineland?

Hitler probably wanted to see how far he could go. France and Britain were to afraid to confront him about anything he did and were avoiding conflict at all costs. They appeased to Hitler, and he no longer thought that they were going to confront him about anything. He probably wanted to see what they would do when he did something that they had forbidden him to do in the treaty of Versilles.

How many soldiers did Hitler's army have when he reoccupied the Rhineland and what were their orders?

What year did Germany remilitarize Rhineland?

The Treaty of Versailles prevented Germany from having armed forces in the area of Germany between the Rhine river & France or Belgium. Now we come to the contentious bit: Had Britain & France said to Hitler ' Either get your troops out of there now or else', but they didn't have the resolve to say that at the time. This was Hitlers first test of the resolve of the powers against him, and they failed dismally. I accept that hindsight is a great power, but..... -Emma - The remilitarization of the Rhineland was ordered by Hitler and carried out on the 7th of March in 1936. Hitler marched 22,000 of his troops onto demilitarised land breaking not only the Treaty of Versailles but also the Locarno Pact. As said above, Britain and France chose to take no action but for a number of reasons, 1. Economic trouble during the early 1930s meant Britain had reduced their spending on Arms and their military. Previous to the remilitarisation of the Rhineland, Britain had followed a policy of disarmament which left them vulnerable. 2. Britain believed that even combined with France, they did not have enough power to overcome Germany, not only that but also that they had already met to discuss the possibility of future remilitarisation but had decided against taking any action should it occur. 3. Britain's first priority was to protect their Empire therefore a War was not in their best interests as it would mean that the Navy would have to concentrate on other countries instead of the Empire. 4. The policy of appeasement meant Britain wished to avoid War, and the fear that a possible European War could occur also prevented them from conflict as this would help to form an alliance between two powerful fascist leaders, Hitler and Mussolini which was a dangerous risk that Britain was not prepared to take.
