German Troops Enter the Rhineland Ca. 1936Unknown - 1936
The Treaty of Versailles (1919), which effectively ended World War I, called for German demilitarization and for Allied occupation of the Rhineland, where Germany had staged much of their World War I activity. In 1935 Hitler reclaimed the Saar region, and in March 1936 he led German troops into the Rhineland, both moves in direct opposition to the Treaty. Hitler's offensive paid off, as the Allies refused to pressure Hitler to withdraw. By 1938, under his policy of Anschluss, Hitler had incorporated Germany and Austria.
