It was felt that Germany had been simply made a scapegoat by the other countries for all that had happened. Looking back it is clear that the Treaty of Versailles created more problems than it actually solved. The treaty broke up empires and changed boundaries. The Germans lost territory and other countries tried to weaken Germany’s military potential and strengthen their own to compensate for the destruction of their lands caused by the Germans.
Instead, it is Germany’s Military reorganization because it reduced Germany’s military which made them feel weak and trapped which for a nationalism country, it is the worst to no longer feel the pride in your country the you used to. These four ways the Treaty of Versailles punished Germany after WWI helped the Treaty to be the cause of WWII. On that note I will leave you with, do you still believe one document couldn’t have helped to start World War
Most of them had also confronted the Wehrmacht’s formidable fighting power during the disastrous 1940 campaign in France while the experiences of British forces in North Africa and Libya against Field Marshal Erwin Rommel it did so much to diminish their respect for the German military capabilities. After the war, Brooke put the situation in these terms. He said, That he had found Marshall's rigid form of strategy very difficult to cope with. He said that he had never really fully appreciated what operations in France would mean the different type of training of German divisions as opposed to the rawt traiining American divisions and to most of our new divisions. He could not appreciate the Germans could reinforce the point of attack some three to four times faster than we could, nor would he understand that until the Mediterranean was open again we should always suffer from a crippling shortage of sea
While the British Empire enjoyed preeminent economic and military strength, the American Revolution diminished its strength. Historians believe that one major reason for this was that the American Revolution showed that Britain could be defeated on the battlefield and at sea.. Without the hammer that Britain could raise as a threat, it could no longer simply dominate negotiations with enemy forces. At the same time, Britain's shipping was vulnerable because of the amount of merchant ships converted into war ships; loss of colonies decreased production. This exposed the jugular of Britain, to be very nearly ripped out by Napoleon less than a decade later. The amount of respect the Britain lost by losing a civil war was enormous and resulted in a weakened position at the negotiating
“The Treaty of Versailles was supposed to create peace, but only created another disaster.” It forced Germany to lose territory, left germans outside of Germany, and caused serious economic problems especially by worsened the depression of the 1930’s. Certain parts of the treaty took away German territory and distributed it to other countries or the the other territory was used to form new countries. The Treaty of Versailles also weakened Germany's means of transportation and put Germany's river system under foreign control. It put restrictions on Germany's military as well.
This would allow Montgomery to launch his assault on the industrial heartland of Germany and end the war by Christmas.” (Greenarce 284) General Dwight D Eisenhower was the commander of the operation which would take over the land campaign from
Americans initially favored neutrality, but events like the sinking of the Lusitania and the Zimmermann telegram provoked the U.S. to join the war in support of the Allies (Shi and Tindall 754-757). Less obvious factors, such as nationalism, imperialism, and business opportunity, also contributed to the war. The war ended in 1918 after immense bloodshed, but President Wilson failed to get the Treaty of Versailles ratified by the Senate (Shi and Tindall 773). As a result of the war, Europe was significantly weakened, harsh punishments were imposed on Germany that later led to WWII, and America emerged with a strong economy as a dominant world power (Shi and Tindall
Lee states: “ (...) the pact was not necessary for Russia.” Laqueur, an American historian, argue that “it should not be assumed that without the pact Germany would have attacked Russia.” During 1939 Stalin focused on the Balkan States. In the end of 1939, Stalin launched about 20 Soviet divisions against 15 Finish.
Not only they could not make a large military, they had to pay heavy reparations to the allied countries. Then Hitler rose up to break the treaty of Versailles and brought limited power to the people. That was the positive effect to the German Aryan races. However, the negative effect comes later in the Second World War. What was the cause of Germany’s great loss?
The Revolutionary war appeared like it was going to end earlier than expected. Since the British army were driving the revolutionist, led by Washington, out of New York and into New Jersey. The British continuously pursued the crippled colonist army, so Washington led his army across the Delaware river. They camped on the Pennsylvania side of the river, but the army was abridged of supplies. Washington considered a very risky plan, knowing if he didn’t do anything the revolution will come to an end.
There are many reasons why World War II started. To put into a big category, the main cause of the war is the first world war. The countries reluctantly signed the Treaty of Versailles, also known as the Peace of Paris, because it did not satisfy any country (History.com, 2009). After World War I, many countries were indebted and economically poor; this is known as the Great Depression.
At the outset, they hoped that, by pointing out that the Orders in Council had been revoked, the U.S. would suspend hostilities. Instead, President Madison demanded an end to impressment, well aware that Britain would not make such a concession in wartime. And so Britain went to war, with no troops to spare to reinforce Canada; it would be defended by a handful of British regulars, Native Americans and Canadian militia.
When you look back on American history, you see a long list of iconic battles that have shaped our history as a nation. One that stands apart from all other occurred on June 6th, 1944, D-Day. D-Day is marked by all Americans as a day of triumph, victory, and heroics. It took years of preparation and training to perfect what came to be a turning point in WWII. D-Day penetrated the western front and ultimately ended up being our most essential move to winning the second war of the world.
The Effect of Women on the Outcome of World War Two World War II effected women tremendously by taking them out of their comfort zones and chucking them into the work force and pushing them to do most of the work men normally would have been doing. The war also effected women by providing opportunities for them to serve in non-traditional roles; in fact, some of them enlisted into the military to serve the United States. The way the war effected women is that they had to take care of family in addition to performing work normally done by men. It was difficult to find people to watch after kids which made life during this time very difficult. After the end of World War II society in general was effected considering the baby boom.
