This caused many Germans to accept the Nazi regime and probably join the army. Germany had little flexibility with its’ army, both in size and actions, due to the restrictions, which caused Germany to begrudge the surrounding countries. The Nazi regime took advantage of what the Germans didn’t like about the Treaty of Versailles, by breaking some aspects of it, in order to gain support and increase their numbers so they could go to war. There are many reasons why the Treaty of Versailles caused World War Two, but there still might have been other causes; just like how Germany was blamed for World War One, it is unfair to put all the blame of the treaty without acknowledging other possible
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. The treaty included fifteen parts and 440 articles specifying Germany 's obligation for the war and its reparations. The Treaty of Versailles had disastrous consequences for Germany because it led to significant financial, material, territorial, and colonial losses. Under the treaty, Germany lost 13 percent of its territory and all of its overseas colonial possessions, limits were imposed on its military, and heavy reparations were imposed. The most controversial part of the treaty was Part VIII that established Germany 's liability for war and the damages of the Allies.
President Woodrow Wilson’s most famous speech to Congress is known as the Fourteen Points Speech. It was given on January 8, 1918, and it developed in response to the various causes of the war. This speech outlined the points which Wilson considered fundamental for peace to last, and it was meant to establish moral goals for the participation of the United States in World War 1. President Wilson used the fourteen points to create the basis of the Treaty of Versailles. In fact, the points were used to establish negotiations after the war ended.
A Congressional Act approved May 13, 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday: "a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as 'Armistice Day'. World War I started because on June 28, 1914, a young Serbian nationalist named Gavrilo Princip killed Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the throne of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, in Sarajevo, Bosnia. Taking place against a backdrop of escalating tensions in the Balkans, the assassination set off a chain of events that would lead to the start of World War I barely one month later. To many people, the Great War seemed to come out of the blue, as the European continent was enjoying a long stretch of unique peace and prosperity. In fact, the seeds of the destructive conflict had been planted long before Princip fired the fatal
The Treaty of Versailles had a huge effect on Germany. To start off with, Germany was hurt politically. When the Treaty of Versailles was first proposed, the government did not agree with the Treaty of Versailles and not only resigned, but also refused to sign the Treaty of Versailles. The new incoming government had no choice but to just sign the Treaty of Versailles. This hurt the government and their connection that they could have possibly had with the Germans because the government was accused of stabbing the people of Germany in the back because of the fact that they signed the Treaty of Versailles.
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.
World War 2 started on 3 September 1939. Although there were many cause for the war, like the failure of the Treaty of Versailles, threat of communism, and appeasement. Hitler and the Nazi party were the main cause, they were linked with all other causes, making them stand out as the ‘main cause’. Everything that had happened after World War 1; the Treaty of Versailles, the Great Depression, Communism and Fascism, all helped Hitler gain trust from the Germans, as he said he would ‘make Germany great again’. Starting another world war within 20 years of the ‘war that was meant to end all wars’.
After Germany signed the Treaty of Versailles nations of Germany had live miserable lives, because high inflation happened in Germany. Germany made a wrong decision when they had to pay money. Instead of taxing people to give money for the damage to Allies, Germany borrowed a lot of money from other countries. As a result they had to pay more money with a huge debt. However German government printed more money to pay off the debt but it caused inflation.
Five days later, the day known as “Black Tuesday”, another 16 million shares were traded. After multiple waves of panic, and the wake of the stock market crash, production slowed to an alarming level. For the next few years the United States experienced a drop in consumer spending and investment, which caused a decline in industrial output and a steep rise in unemployment. Factories and other businesses were forced to lower wages and fire several employees. By 1933, thirteen to fifteen million Americans were unemployed, and nearly half of the banks throughout the country failed.
In my opinion I think that Woodrow Wilson did the most to define American foreign policy in the twentieth century. In the 20th century the United States were involved in two world wars and along with its allies defeated its enemies and also increasing its international reputation. President Woodrow Wilson made the Fourteen Points which were developed from his idealistic Wilsonianism program of spreading democracy and fighting militarism so as to end wars. The Fourteen Points were the basis of the German Armistice and the 1919 Paris Peace Conference. The USA never joined the League of Nations, which was established from Wilson Fourteen points.
