Military and diplomatic actions require leaders to have a strong yet simple understanding of the world around them when taking decisive actions. Integral to this understanding is the concept of strategic interaction, in which a single country’s unilateral action cannot control the outcome. Strategic Interaction is a part of Game Theory, which uses mathematical logic to attempt to explain and model the ways in which decisions are made (Ross). These ideas apply to Germany’s Anschluss of Austria in 1938 in that the parties involved needed to take stock of an opponent’s previous or potential decisions when making their own best decision.
