Ludwig Beck

Generaloberst Ludwig Beck

Ludwig von Beck has again both written to and met with Werner von Brautisch (Army Chief) outlining his concerns with plans to invade Czechoslovakia.

Becks concerns are not that Czechoslovakia shouldn’t be invaded, but about the timing and that it may provoke the Western Powers into action. He has gone as far as suggesting that the German generals resign en-masse to send Hitler a message.

Beck voiced his concerns previously in early May, but didn’t then go as far a suggesting resignations in protest.

Beck has suggested Hitler’s goverment should be more active with civil and social concerns, rather than rushing towards war without at this stage of it’s rearmament programs.
