How the Germans Cheated the Versailles Treaty

Germans Cheated

How the Germans cheated on the Treaty of Versailles (1919)? How effective were their efforts? And why did they cooperate so closely with the Soviet Union – its former and future – enemy?


What did the Allies know about the German efforts? This video takes a look at the Treaty of Versailles restrictions, especially on the German Industry, the Treaty of Rapallo (1922), the German-Soviet Cooperation with the Flight School at Lipetsk and the Tank School at Kazan. Additionally, on how the Secret General Staff (Truppenamt) was established, the creation of the Shadow Luftwaffe, the build-up of reserves and the creation of a strong framework of highly trained and qualified personnel.
