Naval Agreement 1935

In the field of Anglo-German relations, the agreement was of considerable importance. The United Kingdom expressed the hope, as Craigie Ribbentrop said, that it “should facilitate other agreements in a broader framework and that there have been no other considerations.” [3] In addition, the United Kingdom considered that it had turned out to be a “reference” to measure Germany`s intentions vis-à-vis the United Kingdom. [53] Hitler saw it as the beginning of an Anglo-German alliance and was very angry when it did not happen. [54] Although many felt that this was a good example of Britain`s policy of appeasement, most members of the British Parliament believed that the agreement would give Britain a reputation as the world`s most dominant maritime power. However, many of them neglected the need to defend their empire, while the German naval fleet only had to protect its home ports. He neglected, as did other German politicians, that Britain must react not only to the danger of a purely marine rival, but also to the supremacy of Europe by any aggressive military power, especially when that power is able to threaten the Dutch and the canal ports. British debt could never be acquired by trading one factor against the other, and every country that tried to do so would necessarily cause disappointment and disillusionment, as Germany did. [59] June 18, 2010 will mark the 75th anniversary of the 1935 Anglo-German Naval Agreement, perhaps not a date of celebration, as it proved to be one of the milestones in the appeasement of Nazi Germany until the beginning of World War II. Baldwin`s conservative-dominated national government wanted to show its support for disarmament after the horrors of the First World War. Although the conclusion of a bilateral maritime agreement with Germany was controversial, it considered it an important step to bring Germany into the constraints of international agreements and limit its military construction. Yet Hitler implicitly agreed to extend the German navy beyond the borders imposed by the Treaty of Versaille, and it did so unilaterally by its former war allies. The general tone of the party`s Hints for Speakers, published before the 1935 parliamentary elections for the army of speakers and party spokesman, was one of the end signs of the government`s end for collective disarmament.
