The Rhineland (Rheinland in German) is the general name for the land on both sides of the river Rhine in the west of Germany.
The remilitarization of the Rhineland was favoured by some of the local population, because of a resurgence of German nationalism and harboured bitterness over the Allied occupation of the Rhineland until 1930 (Saarland until 1935).
The Rhineland was the scene of the Rhenish separatist movement, whose leaders staged uprisings in Düsseldorf, Bonn, Koblenz, Wiesbaden, and Mainz, and proclaimed a Rhineland republic at Aachen in 1923; the movement, however, collapsed in 1924.

Therefore, no action was taken against Nazi Germany, despite Hitler’s later comment that the march into the Rhineland had been the most nerve-racking 48 hours of his life.
The Rhineland affected the French in that a demilitarised Rhineland was created at Versailles to act as a barrier for the French if the Germans ever got war-like again.
From the British point of view, Hitler concluded that there was room for movement with regards to Versailles as the media, in some areas, had made it clear that they believed that some of the terms of Versailles were not appropriate for the 1930’s.

 RHINELAND - The New York Review of Books
But his discussion of Hitler's Rhineland coup of March 7, 1936 is worth brief comment, since it well illustrates Draper's historical method.
Knox now agrees that Hitler had no intention of fighting in the entire territory west of the Rhine, which is by far most of the Rhineland.
The idea that the German army seriously intended to defend the Rhineland by permitting the French to take over most of it without a struggle and put up inferior resistance east of the Rhine as a way of defending the Rhineland is a pipe dream.

It was from the Rhineland that the Schlieffen Plan had commenced in 1914, sending 750,000 Pickelhaube-wearing Germans through Belgium at the beginning of the First World War, and it would likewise become the launching point of the Blitzkrieg invasion of 1940.
However, in contrast, a fortified, German-occupied Rhineland presented a strategic nightmare for the French, and eventually for all of the western democracies who later had to fight against the wrath of the fully developed Nazi war machine.
Hitler clearly recognized that occupying the Rhineland was among the greatest of the many gambles he took in his risk-laden career.

 1935 Rhineland Crisis
France’s indecision regarding the imminent reoccupation of the Rhineland was due to the fear of French people in provoking a war with the Germans, and the French generals’ lack of confidence in fighting a war against Germany without the help of the British or the Belgians.
This agreement, to demilitarize the Rhineland, was forced upon the Germans after World War I with the Treaty of Versailles, and was later openly accepted as part of the Locarno Pact of 1925.
Ironically, the German troops sent to the Rhineland were unequipped for battle, and received orders to immediately retreat at the first sign of French troops, but due to France’s passive methods of handling the situation, Hitler’s gamble allowed him to reoccupy the Rhineland without conflict.

 The Rhineland Crisis (1936)
Herr Hitler's action is alarming because of the fresh confirmation which it affords of the scant respect paid by German Governments to the sanctity of treaties.
by reoccupying the Rhineland he has deprived us of the possibility of making to him a concession which might otherwise have been a useful bargaining counter in our hands in the general negotiations with Germany which we had it in contemplation to initiate.
It is difficult now to suppose that Herr Hitler could agree to such a demand, and it certainly should not be made unless the Powers, who made it, were prepared to enforce it by military action.

Iran’s gaudy announcement of its uranium enrichment capabilities, in defiance of the international community, coupled with its threat of the elimination of Israel in “one [presumably nuclear] storm” may be considered its Rhineland Moment — the equivalent in our time of Hitler’s remilitarization of the Rhineland in bold and open defiance of its international agreements.
The current Rhineland Moment is being met with the same international inertia and media denial that took place 70 years ago with catastrophic results.
When Hitler met his generals after the successful reoccupation of the Rhineland, he was able to confront them with the falsity of their fears and prove to them how superior his judgement or “intuition” was to that of ordinary military men.
