How did Hitler regain the rhineland? Which country was the threat to Hitler in this situation?
He used the excuse that the recent Mutual Assitance Pact signed by France and USSR to defend eachother from Germany, was a threat and that he needed defence in place. He knew Britian would let it pass but France was the issue. France and the LON were already caught up in the Abyssinian crisis at the same time, causing distraction. French leaders did not want to be responsible for starting a war if they attacked Germany. Germany successfully regained the Rhineland.
