Short Answer

1. Leaders from Britain and France met with Hitler and agreed to give him a portion of Czechoslovakia where many ethnic Germans lived. Neither country wanted to fight another large scale war. The French were especially terrified about fighting the Germans again after the massive number of casualties and damage resulting from World War I.

2. The Nazi-Soviet Pact was a non-aggression pact between Germany and the Soviet Union. It was important because Britain and France had been trying to arrange a pact with the Soviet Union but were unsuccessful. With the Soviet Union now neutral, Britain and France were out of possible powerful European allies. Hitler did not want to fight a two front war against Britain/France in the west and against the Soviet Union in the east. The Germans needed raw materials to fight the coming war against Britain and France. The Soviet Union is a huge country abundant with raw materials.

Fill in the names of the countries we discuss and take notes on their importance in the space provided below.




Area of western Germany which Hitler illegally reoccupied with troops and military equipment. Illegal based upon Versailles Treaty of WWI.


In March 1938, Hitler's army marched in and occupied Austria. This is referred to as the Anschluss.


The Czechs had already lost the Sudetenland and in March 1939, Hitler's army marched in and took the Western half of the country and declared Slovakia an independent country.

Soviet Union

On Aug. 23, 1939, the Germans and Soviets signed a non-aggression pact which included a secret protocol for dividing up Poland which was Hitler's next target.


France and Britain had promised to protect Poland if it was invaded and the Germans did invade on Sept. 1, 1939. On September 1, 1939, France and Britain declared war on Germany. World War II had begun.


Belgium was a victim of circumstance in WWII. Hitler only invaded Belgium to get to France.


When the Germans invaded, the French army was of equal size to the German army. But due to lack of morale, poor leadership, and fear left over from WWI the French were defeated by the Germans in only 6 weeks. Germans attacked with a maneuver called a Pincer. Half of their army came from the North through Belgium and the other half surprised the French by attacking through the thick Ardennes forest in Western France. Germans set up a puppet government in Vichy, France.

Great Britain

After the fall of France, the British were left all alone to fight the Germans for almost a year and a half until the United States entered the war in December of 1941.
