Although he was told multiple times not to invade neighboring countries, Adolf Hitler sent troops into Poland in 1939. This provoked England and France to declare war on Germany. Japan and Italy took aggressive actions as well bringing themselves, China and the United States into war as well causing the world to plunge into World War II.
After World War I the Treaty of Versailles was signed which forbade Germany from entering the Rhineland. This was a buffer zone between Germany and France. In 1936,in defiance of the treaty, Hitler sent soldiers into the Rhineland and the French brought his violations up to the League of Nations but did not take any immediate actions(doc.3). In 1938 Britain, France, and Italy had a meeting with Hitler, at which he demanded a section of Czechoslovakia called the Sudetenland(doc.4). Using a policy of appeasement they gave into his demands and Hitler obtained the Sudetenland. British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain favored appeasement because he felt that by giving Hitler the Sudetenland he would be able to avoid war(doc.5).
Not everyone agreed with Prime Minister Chamberlain's policy of appeasement though, hsfdsd sfhsff sfhd s sdhf s sfs fsg cvdsf gsd gs vc v gdfgg g dfg dfbgf df g dfh d ghd fh fh dh d hg dfbh dfbdf b dfb d fbh dfbh df bhh db df bhd fb db gd b dfbgh d bghd bh db d bgh dvb dfg df bgd fb cx b dfcb dfvb d fvb d fb dfb bd fb g dbd bv df
