The Rhineland from a German perspective

Setting: Berlin, late 1944

I have a group of pro-Nazi Germans who, in discussion, mention the Rhineland. Now, I can easily find historical facts about the Rhineland (and plenty of tourism!) and details about Nazi Germany entering in 1936 in spite of the Versailles treaty, but, naturally, the history is not from the perspective of anyone who thought this was a good and glorious action. So I'm trying to find that perspective.

- Insulting the French, who should have stopped them?
- Insulting the British, who didn't do anything because it happened over a weekend?
- Mocking the Allies for being weak?

My general history in this period isn't great, so any ideas of how to make this sound realistic - especially in the context of the end of the war - would be appreciated. Thanks!
