It’s 1939, Hitler has risen to power wreaking havoc on other countries. This is the start of what is known as WWII. Taking a few steps back is WWI. It all started in 1914 and ended in 1918, this is commonly referred to as the “Great War”. This war dealt with the Triple Alliance, the Triple Entente, the Central Powers, and the Allies. After this war ended on November 11, 1918, leaders from the countries made a treaty called the Treaty of Versailles. After this treaty was made, many things happened and the question in many people 's minds was how did this treaty cause WWII? The Treaty of Versailles helped cause WWII by treating Germany harshly in these three ways: Their army was reduced, they lost territory, and the number one reason is all of the blame Germany got. One way that the Treaty of Versailles treated Germany harshly was the way that it reduced their army. After the date of March 31, 1920, Germany wasn’t allowed to have over one hundred thousand soldiers in its army, (Doc B) Germany would more than likely be furious because what if they were attacked? They felt vulnerable to everyone. France is right next to Germany, and refuse to let them have any military forces at the border. (Doc A) Germany is even more defenseless and they have to obey by what France tells them. Since …show more content…
The treaty took coal producing areas away, reducing the coal production to forty percent (Doc A) The coal is how things run and work and without having that it is like living in a world before the Industrial Revolution. After WWI, Germany began losing land that was taken by other countries (Doc A) The loss of land made Germany furious and wanted to get it back. Anyone losing territory is a big deal especially if it helps the country run better. Taking away their land and not letting them have a certain amount is a time when Germany wants to take it back, and will stop at
A. The Treaty of Versailles was created as an agreement that Germany would pay for the damage that was produced during World War I. However, it might have been the most important creason of World War II. Many of the leaders saw it coming, yet they just ignored it. B. In what aspects did the Treaty of Versailles impact on World War II? C.
This war is a war between the Allies and the Axis. The Axis consists of three main countries, Nazi Germany, Empire of Japan and Kingdom of Italy. On the other hand, the Allies consists of the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union and the United States and there was two important countries that soon joined the Allies, China and France.
On June 28, 1919, Germany and the Allied Powers signed the Treaty of Versailles, formally ending one of the bloodiest wars in modern history. World War I caused the deaths of nearly ten million soldiers and up to thirteen million non-combatants. Catastrophic property and industry losses occurred, especially in France, Belgium, Poland, and Serbia.
World War 1 was an atrocious war that caused millions of deaths and hundreds of billions of dollars in reparations. World War 1 lasted from 1914 to 1919 and rudimentarily, was the fight between the Allied powers and the Central powers. The Allied powers consisted of France, Great Britain, Russia, and Belgium while the Central powers consisted of Germany, Austria-Hungary, and the Ottoman Empire. All countries had some participation and damage done throughout World War 1, and the countries who started the war may be obscure. However, there are some countries that can especially be picked out for their contribution and cause for the war.
World War II was a devastating war. Nations were being taken over, the economy was going down, and people were choosing sides. The world had plunged into World War II in 1939 because of the Rise of Dictatorship, The weakness of The League of Nations, and the failed policy of Appeasement. Hitler had defied The Treaty of Versailles, which due to the treaty, Germany had lost its land.
World War I lasted for four years and the signing of the Treaty of Versailles marked the defeat of Germany. Adolf Hitler rose to power for his promise to rebuild Germany. His aggressive attitude initiates the Second World War when he arranged an unprovoked attack on Poland. While Germany reclaimed his land, Japan joined the Axis alliance with Germany and Italy in order to dominate Southeast Asia. The United States stay neutral in WWII until the attack on Pearl Harbor.
The aforementioned international factors had great impact towards the start of the war. The treaty of Versailles caused the population to become poverty stricken, unsatisfied, and unhappy with their lives. This, in turn, led to a climate that cultivated leaders such as Hitler. After this, the Failure of the League of Nations simply gave more momentum to to the rising leader of Germany. Finally, the Munich Agreement and its failed appeasement of Hitler, gave him the territory and power necessary to catapult all countries into the beginning of the war.
The Treaty of Versailles created multiple economic problems for Germany, such as inflation and unemployment, by demanding a reduction in Germany trade, reparations, taking away resources and industry. The German were separated from each other due to the Treaty of Versailles taking away Germany territory. An unpopular government was also put into place because of the Treaty of Versailles. Hitler wanted to make
For example, it made Germany to hand over 70,000 square kilometers of their lands to the allies. Also Germany had to pay 6,600 million dollars to the Allies. In addition, Germany had to reduce their army, so they couldn’t ready for the next battle. Because of those terms of the Treaty of Versailles Germany hated it a lot.
World War I ended in 1918 with the victorious Allied powers, and the peace-promising Treaty of Versailles. However, this treaty 's peace did not last long as its unrealistic demands caused strong resentment within the Central powers against the Allied powers. Territorial losses, reparation payments, and inflation all left Europe in economic ruins. The damage and destruction that resulted from World War I paved a clear path that allowed for World War II to occur. It began in 1933 when Adolf Hitler gained power and, with the help of the Nazi Party, turned Germany in a totalitarian dictatorship.
Without them it wouldn’t of been called World War. Everyone was fighting. In The Treaty of Versailles, it clearly stated that “The trade agreements must also be applied to all allied forces.”. That way everyone they trade with are all in agreement. That way there wouldn’t be a problem or no disagreement causing an issue.
Introduction World War I came to an end with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on June 28, 1919. The treaty was signed to create lasting peace. The treaty was negotiated between the three allied powers of Britain, France and the United States with no participation from Germany. The treaty 's negotiations revealed a split between the three allied powers with France intending to weaken Germany in such a manner that it would make it impossible for it to renew hostilities. However, Britain and the United States objected to some of the provisions because of the fear that it would be a pretext for another war.
Adolf Hitler was a German politician who was the leader of the Nazi party, rose to power for many reasons. The economical, social, and political standpoints in Germany at the time were a disaster. He promised German people he would bring back the pride in their the country. After World War I the economic situation was abhorrent. The war damaged the economy, and had gone into hyperinflation, which wiped out citizens savings quickly.
Which was 1 an agreement between France, Italy, Nazi Germany, and Britain. [Since] Germany invaded the Sudetenland in Czechoslovakia, the British and French prime ministers tried to get Hitler to agree not to use his military in the future in return for the land he had taken. This act was unsuccessful as Hitler invaded the rest of Czechoslovakia, then this led Britain and France to declare World War II. Another cause of World War II was Fascism. Since the World War I left the economy a mess, countries were being taken over by dictators, as these dictators looked for new lands to conquer.
This flawed treaty also attributed to the start of World War II. In part eight of the treaty the blame of World War I is discussed. “Part VIII – Reparations – Section I: General Provisions – Article 231. The Allied and Associated Governments affirm and Germany accepts the responsibility of Germany and her allies for causing all the loss and damage to which the Allied and Associated Governments and their nationals have been subjected as a consequence of the war imposed upon them by the aggression of Germany and her allies” (Kirchberger 365). This excerpt from the Treaty of Versailles declares that Germany is to accept blame for the war.
