1If you give Hitler a cookie Based on the children’s story:If you give a mouse a cookie
2Big 4, responsible for the Peace negotiations If Germany loses WWI, then the allied troops of Britain, France, Italy, and the United States will blame Germany for causing the war and force the Germans to sign the Treaty of Versailles in 1919.
3If the Germans sign the Treaty of Versailles, then Germany will be weak militarily because of the arms reduction, weak economically due to the high inflation and reparations, and weak socially because of the loss of territory.
4If the Germans are weak economically and politically unstable then the conditions are ripe for Hitler to come to power as Chancellor in 1933.
5If Hitler is in power then he is going to want to make Germany strong again (3rd Reich) by building up their army in 1934, violating the Treaty of Versailles.
6If Hitler is building up his army, then Britain and France will let him violate the Treaty of Versailles because they want a strong German state that could potentially defend against the spread of communism in the West.
7If Germany has a strong army, then they are going to want to reoccupy the demilitarized Rhineland to achieve Lebensraum in 1936; again violating the Treaty of Versailles.
8If Hitler wants to secure Eastern Europe, then he will sign the Rome-Berlin Axis Pact in 1936 to make German allies with Mussolini and Italy and the Anti-Comitern Pact in 1936 with Japan.
9If Hitler has these alliances, then he is going to want to re-conquer previous German land by invading Austria in 1938 to create the Anschluss (uniting Austria and Germany).
10If Hitler annexes (seizes) Austria and no one stops him, then he is going to want more and take over the Sudetenland (a small region in Western in Czechoslovakia) where Hitler insisted 3 million Germans lived.
11If Neville Chamberlain (the Prime Minister) of Britain doesn’t want Hitler to invade any more countries, then he will sign the Munich Pact in The Munich Pact was a form of appeasement as it let Hitler take the Sudetenland with his promise not to take over the rest of Czechoslovakia.
12If Hitler gets a piece of the Czechoslovakia (the Sudetenland) then he’s going to want the whole thing and break the Munich Pact by gobbling up the rest of Czechoslovakia in March 1939.
13If Neville Chamberlain and France see Hitler take the rest of Czechoslovakia, then they will be upset and promise that they will declare war on Germany if he invades Poland.
14If Hitler is afraid to fight the Western democracies and the Soviet Union at the same time, then he going to sign the Nazi-Soviet Pact in 1939 promising peaceful relations between the Soviet Union and Germany. Secretly Stalin and Hitler agree to divide up Poland and other parts of Eastern Europe between them.
15If Hitler signs the Nazi-Soviet Pact, then Hitler is going to invade Poland on September 1st 1939.
16If Hitler invades Poland on September 1st 1939, then 2 days later France and Britain will declare war on Germany officially beginning WWII.
