Following the resignation of Blomberg, Keitel was the only soldier who had close contact with Hitler, but he did nothing to identify or neutralize the evil machinations of Himmler. The "case Fritsch" Keitel inexcusably lost for the first time. Brauchitsch and Raeder were members of the Tribunal, which tried Fritsch, however, they have shifted the matter entirely on Goering and jumped at the chance to expose the dirty sources of false accusations. Brauchitsch also be reproached for the fact that he has not done anything for the full rehabilitation of his predecessor after the clear groundlessness of the charges against him had been proved, and Fritsch was acquitted. While it is true that Fritsch himself had asked him to no longer make any effort for it. At Beck, a friend of Fritsch, hands were tied because Hitler thought it was none of his business. None of the other high-ranking officers did not know anything about it, and on February 4, they appeared before a fait accompli. Naturally, at first they believed the official statement, for an idea of ??shame in the higher spheres were plunged into shock. Hitler was able to ensnare the German officer corps at his own code of honor. The invasion of Austria and the Sudeten crisis was soon overshadowed by the fate of one man, but Hitler saw how far he can go, and it turned out to be the most dangerous part of the whole episode.
