The only way to solve this is through the Anschluss!
Where are Britain and France?
In 1934, the Nazi Party once tries to take over Austria but Mussolini stopped them. Now, in 1938, Mussolini and Hitler were allies and the Austrian chancellor lost his main protector.
I'm going to organize a plebiscite to see what the Austrian people want.
Hitler encouraged the Nazi party to cause trouble for the government by creating riots and demonstratios and told Schuschnigg that the only way to sort out the problems in Austria was through Anschluss.
I think I'll vote for Anschluss
Schuschnigg was expecting support from Britain and France after Hitler's pressure but they failed to support him.
I'm now sure nothing will happen if I continue to defy the Treaty of Versailles
Schuschnigg organized a plebiscite to see what the Austrian people wanted. Hitler was not prepared to take this risk so he sent his troops into Austria in March 1938 to supposedly guarantee a trouble free election.
Under the watchful eye of the Nazis 99.75% voted for Anschluss.
Britain and France did nothing about all of this and Hitler's risky but determined decision finally paid off and grew confident that nothing would happen if he continued to defy the Treaty of Versailles.
