Example text

A German general captured in Tunisia in 1943 was overheard commenting to other captured generals in February 1945 that they would jump for joy if Germany could obtain another Treaty of Versailles (Neitzel 2007, p. 137). The recognition of reality came too late (Weinberg 1995, ch. 1). Ironically, the man who wanted to lead Germany and obtained the opportunity to do so held and advocated a view of the peace settlement different from that of most Germans. In his speeches and his writings, Adolf Hitler always denounced those who wanted to reclaim what Germany had lost by the peace treaty as stupid “Grenzpolitiker,” border politicians, as compared to his brilliant self, the “Raumpolitiker,” the politician of space (Jäckel 1980).

Endless propaganda about the alleged mistreatment of the minority that was probably the one best treated in Europe (unlike the worst treated one in the South Tyrol) would provide a way of discouraging the Western powers from coming to the aid of the attacked state. They were instructed in March to raise demands of the Prague government so that a deadlock would develop. Simultaneously, a group of hoodlums selected from the minority would stage a series of incidents of which Germany would utilize one as the pretext for invasion at a time of its choosing, but without risking disclosure by not letting the provocateurs know which one would be selected.

The domestic impact of the annexation of Austria was extremely favorable for Hitler and his regime: the German public was enthusiastic about what looked like the realization of a dream many had long held, and the Austrian gold reserve assisted a government wrestling with the costs of a vast rearmament program. In an election on April 10, 1938, of the sort that jokers at the time suggested might have its results stolen from the Ministry of Propaganda ahead of time, the population affirmed its support for the annexation and the list of nominees.
