France and the Nazi Menace


Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the tension between French intelligence and the Nazi Machtergreifung. Intelligence observers predicted that the new regime was made in order to come up with a policy of massive rearmament and territorial expansion. Meanwhile, Military attaché General Renondeau in Berlin said that the evolution of a Hitlerian dictatorship would have a big effect on the political fabric of Germany, on Franco-German relations and on international politics. He added that if Hitler becomes Chancellor, Germany will become one big military barracks. These warnings were repeated and intensified after the Machtergreifung.

Keywords:   French intelligence, Nazi Machtergreifung, rearmament, territorial expansion, General Renondeau, Hitler, dictatorship
