While there is some controversy, many endocrinologists will treat such patients, especially if they have a high cholesterol blood level. The abnormal cholesterol profile will likely show improvement with thyroid hormone replacement.

According to Weinberg, the dissatisfaction with the Treaty of Versailles, after Germany surrendered in 1918 and having been forced to sign for the treaty sparked the war. That included them taking the blame for the First World War, reducing the territories and agreeing to disarm and diminish the military power. The Germans felt that the punishment was unduly harsh developing resentment for the alleged victors of First World War. When the Nazis came to power, Hitler flouted the Treaty of Versailles and increased the Germany military (Shirer).
The appeasement came in after the allied countries felt that the pressure levied on Germany should be reduced from the Treaty of Versailles.
