Hitler Early Moves
1) He wanted to make an alliances with Italy and Soviet Union cause he hoped it would help him in the future. with Soviet Union with pact Hitler had shrewdly won Stalins agreement to stay out of germanys way as it continued to expand.Germany promise not to attack the Soviet Union and he would give them territory in Europe.
2) It shocked many in Europe. The Britsh and French thought tension between the Soveit union and the Germans were a rising. They hoped Stalin would stand with them against a possible German attack. In fact the Soviet did fear Hitler intentions. Stalin however belived the deal with Nazi offered the greatest security.

Define isolationism in your own words?
isolated from other countries
refuses to enter alliances

I think no cause if US stays isolated Hitler can take over all of europe and then he would of ben more powerfull and whats stoping him now from attacking United states. the US needs to step in now befor it is to late.
