Adolf Hitler violated the Versailles Treaty in several ways. The Versailles Treaty required that Germany would dismantle its military and have only a military with defensive capabilities. Hitler began to build up the German military so that it could have offensive capabilities. He also began to draft soldiers, which was a violation of the terms of the Versailles Treaty. He felt Germany was mistreated by the terms of the Versailles Treaty. He wanted to build up the military as part of his plan to restore German nationalism and to help stimulate the economy that was in a depression.
Hitler also moved his military into the Rhineland in 1936. This region, which borders Germany and France, was supposed to be a demilitarized area according to the terms of the Versailles Treaty.
Hitler also began to invade other countries. In 1938, he annexed Austria, and he wanted to take over part of Czechoslovakia where many Germans lived. He was able to get this land, called the Sudetenland, as a result of the Munich Pact. In 1939, he invaded the rest of Czechoslovakia.
