Which countries did Germany invade in 1938 and 1939?

Germany took over various countries and if i am correct they were taken over in this order: 1. Rhineland -> The Rhineland was a demilitarized area that lies between the Rhine River and France border. They were easily taken over, (which was against the Versailles Treaty by the way) 2. Austria-> Austria was next on Hitler's list 3.Czechoslovakia was the next target of Hitlers. He repeatedly spoke of uniting of all German speaking people. And because German people lived in Czech. Hitler believed that he should own part of it. It was divided between Germany, Hungary, and Poland. 4. Hitler then decided to invade Poland, however Britain and France decided that they would become allies with the Polish and then WW2 began. Hopefully this helps!

Which land did France lose to Germany in 1871?

This question is rather vague, but I would assume the piece of land you are referring to is the Rhineland.The French lost the Rhineland to the Germans at the beginning of World War One (1914-1918). It was a rather important piece of land to the French, as it contained a lot of useful farmland as well as raw material deposits useful for industrial progression. The Germans eventually lost the war in 1918, unexpectedly surrendering (there is controversy as to whether, had they not surrended, they would have actually won World War One). The following year, a treaty was made in which was outlined various sanctions on Germany, such as having to pay costs for damage (reparations), and forbidding Germany to have an army bigger than 100,000 troops. One of these conditions was that the Rhineland was to be given back to the French, and that it would become a demilitarised zone. So the German Army was forced to stay out of the Rhineland.Hitler became Chancellor of Germany on 30th January 1933, and began to break many conditions of the Treaty of Versailles. The other countries didn't see him as a threat at first, and by the time they did he had become very strong and they didn't want to anger him (Poland was the last straw in Sept 1939). He made the army bigger than 100,000 troops and started manufacturing weapons. He marched in and took back the Rhineland in 1936, where it remained under German control until the latter half of the Second World War.I don't know whether it is the Rhineland you are talking about, so there's a bit of background so you can work out whether we're on the same wave-length.Hope that helps.Qu.mstr

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.
