History books note that, in 1938, Nazi troops strolled into Austria and absorbed it into the Third Reich.

Why didn't Europe come to Austria's aid like nations did the following year for Poland on our timeline?

Is this your homework?
Have you read anything about the Anschluss?
They were welcomed by the majority, they just walked in and there was little opposition but large groups enthusiastically welcomed them. What were other countries meant to do? Declare war?

There would be those who will argue we didint come to Polands aid at all.

many welcomed the ideas of a nation of a united German people, and despite opposition/referendum, they were largely welcomed, and hardly seen as starting a war over

I thought Austria was allied with Germany (the Anschluss)?

I stand corrected by myself, they was a "vote", with 99.73% in favour, Nazi votes are not reknown for being accurate, but fair to say the majority wanted a form of a Greater Germany (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1938_A...uss_referendum)
