Germany started to break the Treaty of Versailles, quietly and unobtrusively, the moment it came into effect (March 1920). The German Army was never reduced to 100,000 and the German General Staff was renamed, downsized but not abolished. The German government never complied fully with the disarmament clauses, despite inspection.

What did Hitler do that went against the Treaty of Versailles?

The moment that Hitler came into power, he stopped paying reparations to the Allies. The treaty of Versailles stated that Germany was to pay 6,600,000,000 pounds over a period of 66 years. In 1924, Stresemann signed the Dawes plan which meant that Germany could pay what she could actually afford each year, starting with a sum of 50 million pounds.When Hitler stopped paying reparations, he took the money that should have gone to the Allies and put it straight back into the German economy.He then disregarded the Arms restrictions put on Germany in the Treaty and built the army up from 100,000 men to 900,000 men.Not only did Hitler want to turn Germany into a war machine, but this increase in infantry provided more jobs for the thousands of unemployed Germans.After making an appeasement with Britain and France, Hitler re-militarised the Rhineland. The Treaty of Versailles stated that the Rhineland was to be completely demilitarized and occupied by Allied armies for 15 years. After signing the Munich Treaty with Britain, France and Italy ( Chamberlain, Dalandier and Mussolini ) the French withdrew their troops from the Rhineland. Hitler used the Rhineland to test his boundaries and see if the Allies would interfere. They did not.Hitler made an alliance with Austria. The Treaty of Versailles said that Germany was not allowed to unite with Austria, her German speaking neighbour, and create one German nation. Hitler did it anyway.

Why is the Treaty of Versailles partly to blame for World War 2 happening?

The Treaty of Versailles was party to blame because it placed huge sanctions on Germany. This left Germany in a major economic depression (along with most of the world at the time) and the German people feeling very angry at the world for causing their problems. Enter a charismatic leader named Adolf Hitler. He rallied the German people and gave them people to blame their problems on, creating a huge wave of nationalism. This gave Hitler the strength to put his thousand year Riech dreams to work, starting World War 2.
