Operation Schnellplan

quick schedule

The 'Schnellplan' was the German plan to accelerate the rearmament programme, thereby saving one year, in the period immediately before and during the first part of World War II, by the rapid assimilation of the Czechoslovak arms industry after that country had been wholly occupied, an event which took place in March 1939 after Germany had gained the Sudetenland western border region in October 1938 (August 1938).
