Example text

In the 1930s, there was a minimal effort at rearmament, especially in the air, but this was heavily contested. In what would be the last election before World War II, that of 1935, the Labour Party opposition pictured Neville Chamberlain as a warmonger for his support of a minimal program to rebuild the country’s armed forces (Shay 1977). France similarly initiated a minimal rearmament program in the 1930s, but such steps also met with substantial opposition (Kiesling 1996). It was hoped that a line of fortifications, named the Maginot Line after one of its early sponsors, would protect the country from a German invasion, but this procedure with its obvious emphasis on defense hardly inspired confidence in the smaller countries of east and southeast Europe in French willingness to come to their aid if attacked by Germany.
