lost territory and had substantial restrictions on military operation. MARCH 1935 *Adolf Hitler announced that Germany would not obey these restrictions which limited the size of Germany's army. In result the League of Nations only issued a small punishment *Hitler was convinced to take even greater risks because of the leagues failure to stop Germany from continuing to advance. Rhineland * German troops weren't able to enter due to the treaty * The area formed a buffer between France and Germany * On March 7th, 1936, German troops moved to this area. * The French were afraid to risk war and the British urged appeasement, giving in to an aggressor to keep peace The truth shall set you free...NOT! *Hitler claimed that if the French and British would have challenged him, he would have "backed down" This was a big mistake for France and Britain...

This became known as the Rome-Berlin Axis. *A month later Japan and Germany also came to an agreement. *Germany, Italy and Japan together came to be known as the Axis Powers.
