4. 1935 Hitlers first major victory came when the Saar (an area of land taken off Germany by the ToV) voted to return to German control.
The Saar!
Join with me to make a greater Germany!
(otherwise the SA will beat you up!)
90% voted yes!
5. 1936 Hitler marched his soldiers into the Rhineland (not allowed by ToV!)
I hope Britain and France dont try to stop me as Im weak.
No problem he is simply marching into his own backyard.
6. 1938 In Germany Hitler has been steadily building his army.Britain and France turned a blind eye as they had their own issues to deal with.
Hello, Im Hitler Im not evil!
I just want to be friends!!!
Well the communistUSSR will have to attack him before us!Let him have his army.
7. 1938 Hitler turned his attention to the south. He wanted to unite with Austia (ANSCHLUSS)
The German-speaking country of Austria should be part of a greater Germany!
8. 1938 In Austria the Prime Minster Schuschniggwas not impressed!
Be my friend...
No way! Austria is an independent country.
Youll regret this Schuschnigg!
9. 1938 The Austrian Nazi party begins to cause trouble starting fires and rioting to make the government look bad.
Pssst....Cause some trouble for Schuschnigg.
Hey....
10. 1938 Hitler moved his troops near the Austrian border and offer to help out with the problems.
My army will help you out and restore order.
I said NO!...hey why are you tanks at the border?
Britain. France. Help me out pls...
No!
Non!
No! Hitler is my BFF
11. 1938 With no help from Britain, France or Italy a frustrated Schuschnigg resigns.
Thats it!
I quit!

Come on in Hitler and help us out, pretty please...
(Come on he even looks evil!)

14. 1938 Then Hitler held a vote, his soldiers intimidating the Austrian voters. 99.75% of the vote was in favour of Hitler being in charge.
Vote our way or youll be sorry!
99.75%
JA!

15. 1938 Hitler next turned his attention on Czechoslovakia. The Sudetenland had around 3 million German speakers living in it.
The German-speaking area of Sudetenland should be part of a greater Germany!

Mwhaha, I cant believe Im getting away with this.
I think I can trust him....

21. March 1939 The new Czech President Hatcha could not run his country as Poland took over part of it and then the Slovaks demanded independence.
Sure no worries!
Errr...Mister Hitler I need your help. My country is falling apart and I need some help.
This is working perfectly!
22. March 1939 The Nazi tanks rolled into the Czech capital Prague unopposed. It is obvious that Poland is Hitlers next target. This was the end of Appeasement,
23. 23rd August 1939 The Nazis hold secret talks with the USSR and then announce the Nazi-Soviet pact. They had agreed to divide Poland between them.
At the time people were shocked that these two enemies had made a treaty. This cartoon reflects this shock!
Hitler: The scum of the Earth, I believe.
Stalin: The Bloody assassin of the workers I presume!
This body represents Poland
