■Annexation of Austria■
■The forced fusion■
Hungary and Italy were opposed to the fusion until the end.
But when it came down to it, Austria joined Germany just like that.
And so, with this and that, their daily life under one roof began.
At that time, some territory of Italy belonged to France and Austria.
They were called “the Italy that’s not yet retrieved”. But Austria had lost
most of its Italian territory during WW1.
France and Austria’s relationship was downright abysmal.
Well, Austria had been a regular in about every anti- France alliance there ever was…
By the way, since Austrians’ ethnicity is pretty mixed, they were hated by Germany’s boss
who was obsessed with his pure-blood policy.
So when the annexation was complete, he had the Austrians do lots of unpleasant work.
