It cannot be doubted that the remilitarisation of the Rhineland by Germany in 1936 was a profoundly important international event and made it much more difficult for Britain and France to cope with the challenge posed by National Socialism. In that sense, although Eva Haraszti reminds us with a quote from Beaverbrook that the underlying problem of those years was Germany, her book confirms that problems lay elsewhere too, in Paris, London and Moscow. Whilst recognising these, a merit of the study is that it keeps the East European perspective clearly in mind. An analysis of the Franco-Soviet pact (the ostensible reason for Hitler's action in 1936) is followed by a discussion of the antecedents of the Rhineland invasion. There is next a usefu1 survey of the comparative strength of the defence forces of the three Western powers, slightly flawed it must be said by n failure to draw on lhe now considerable literature on German and British armaments expenditure above all. On the other hand it might be argued that the preoccupation with what might have happened had Britain and France been more fully aware of the true situation of Germany in 1936 rather confuses a central argument of the present book, namely that the French response to the remilitarisation 'was first and foremost of a political nature'.
