It seems that Germany must've been under incredible scrutiny especially by the British.
How was Hitler able to rearm?
Please provide specifics on personnel and weapons classes.

To take one example, in 1935, Hitler negotiated the Anglo German Naval Treaty (details in the link).
This treaty "broke" the Versailles Treaty because it gave Germany naval tonnage limits ABOVE Versailles. It was a bilateral treaty between England and Germany, concluded without consulting the other Versailles signatories, especially France and Italy.
Basically, Chamberlain's Britain tolerated a few German deviations from the Versailles Treaty as long as her own interests didn't seem to be threatened. They learned too late that "a few German deviations" would add up to another world war.
