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.
