How did germany gain such military strength before World War 2?
Brilliant leadership, patriotism, and the large population of Germany.
Before World War II, the world's supreme power was Great Britain, with its globe-spanning empire, its maritime strength, and its commercial wealth. Germany soon challenged Great Britain's supremacy in terms of military capacity; however, the United States and the Soviet Union were undoubtedly the real world-powers in terms of industrial and military potential alike.
Her declining military strength, shortages of food, loss of allies and her economic inability to cope with the war all gradually caused her to lose the war. One of the reasons, which can account for Germany's loss in the First World War (WWI), is her declining military strength along with the morality of the soldiers, which by the end of the war, was very poor and low.
When WW1 ended, the victorious Allies placed the main blame for the war on Germany. They made Germany pay the costs of repair, and put limits on Germany's military strength. This made the people of Germany mad, and they turned to a man that promised that Germany would return to power. This man's name was Adolf Hitler.
When Hitler came to power in 1933 he began to build up the German military. There were certain restrictions placed on Germany at the end of World War I with regard to the strength of their military. Hitler intentionally violated several of these restrictions. His whole purpose was to "right the wrongs" imposed on Germany after WWI. Even if that meant starting another war in Europe,and that is exactly what he did,that was World War…
After World War 1, based on the Treaty of Versailles, major restraints were placed on Germany's military power. Limits were set on the size of its army and limits were imposed on various types of warships. For example, Germany was forbidden to build submarines. Eventually, even before Hitler, Germany disregarded many of these restraints.
During World War II, Germany was unable to conquer the Soviet Union for several reasons. First, the Soviet Union's inherent strengths and resources were far greater than Germany had estimated. Second, Germany's strength was spread out among several different fronts, while all of the Soviet strength was concentrated against Germany. Third, the Soviet Union received vitally important aid from America and Great Britain that enabled it to grow in military effectiveness with each new year…
