Part of the St Antony’s Series book series


The previous chapter concluded that in view of the grossly inadequate level of German rearmament in autumn 1939, the unexpected extent of the successes during the first year of the war could not be adequately accounted for solely by a review of military factors. This is even more true of an examination of overall military developments in Germany from 1933 to 1939, which can only be properly understood when viewed as an integral part of Hitler’s policies.
