      Von Ribbentrop had convinced him that the French and British were too gutless to act, and Munich had only reinforced that idea.  The Non-aggression pact with the USSR was, they thought, going to seal the deal.  While Britain would be willing to fight for Poland if they knew Russia would also fight from the East, Hitler miscalculated and believed that with Russia not on their side, the Allies would not be willing to risk another large-scale war.

      Hitler certainly wanted war, just not with all the counties with which he ended up at war...
