Meanwhile the west knew full well Hitler was violating Versaille Treaty by re-arming Germany for war.
Both the French and the Brits had their heads in the sand starting in the mid-1930s. If they would have acted then, they could have crushed Hitler's regime and avoided WWII. Instead, they chose to appeasement -- wishfully thinking that Hitler would stop after snapping up "just one more piece" of Europe.
Eleutherophobics of the World...Unite!!!
Hitler started rearming in 1933. He publicly announced it in 1935 and left the League of Nations that same year.
