Q:

What were the main aims of Hitler's foreign policy?

A:

The main aims of Hitler's foreign policy were to stop the Treaty of Versailles forced on Germany after World War One, to unite all German speakers together and to gain land in the East for Germany. He used threats and violence to achieve his aims.

After getting out of prison in 1924, Hitler came to power determined to make Germany a power country again. He was angered with the fact that Germany was disarmed while the country's allies had not been disarmed. Hitler took advantage of the reluctance of his foes, Britain and France, to go against the Versailles Treaty. He became a popular figure in Germany because of the successes of his policy.
