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.
The German economy was damaged, people lost their jobs, and the people were turned against their government. Life in Germany became miserable after the signing of what was called a peace treaty. Because of all this, the Germans desired a strong leader, someone who would once again help Germany rise to power. They wanted revenge, and after a short time, they were sure to get that. But without the peace treaty this anger and vengeance would not have existed in the first place.
In early 1919 they launched a bid for power, joined with rebel soldiers and sailors, they set up Soviets in several towns. Ebert then made an agreement with the commanders of the army and the Freikorps to shut the rebellion down. The Kapp Putsch was a threat from the right-wing and took place on the 20th of March in 1920 and was lead by Wolfgang Kapp. Kapp lead 5000 Freikorps (anti communist ex-soldiers) into Berlin which was a direct threat to the Weimar government. The army then refused to fire on the Freikorps and it seemed like Ebert’s government was going to fail however the people then went on strike and everything came to a halt.
On 11 November 1918, Germany finally surrendered .They then received a lot of consequences such as the treaty of Versailles. However, was it inevitable that Germany will lose in World War One? In the following paragraphs, we are going to talk about some of the reasons for Germany’s failure. Some reasons show that Germany was actually taking less advantage in the war, but
About 132 people died. General strike wasn't a good solution for Germany. Who will pay the workers? Of course, the government need to pay it. So the hyperinflation begun to exist.
Despite all of this, the revolution of 1848 in France didn 't gain much traction until King Louis Philippe refused to expand the industrial and baking franchises. Around this time, the expansion of railroads would have been a great way to create new jobs for the people. Instead, King Philippe create a small group of elite bankers and industrials. Republican parties began to become more powerful and increased in numbers thus
This created an substantial amount of debt for Germany which in turn created hyperinflation which affected most of the German populace directly. Many people lost their jobs, prices of daily needs, such as bread, went up to ridiculous prices and many people lost their savings in a matter of days so Germany could start to pay off the debt they owed to the Allies. Many people started to lose faith in the Weimar government and the growing Nazi party used the failing economy as a walking-stick to help them rise to power. They presented solutions to the German people, creating a false sense of hope for the people and a volatile trust for their forthcoming policies and proposals as to how the Nazi Party would end the economic crisis and return the people to their prosperous and steady lifestyle. It was the reparations that cause the German people to no longer trust their government, but it was the Nazis who would win back the trust of the people through false
It was easier for people to believe they were great and stab them in the back than to believe they had been failures and deserved what was happening to them. His message resonated with the masses and therefore I am reminded of Marx and Religion and the Opium of the people Hitler became just that, so as the German economy crashed, his popularity rose, the business community wanted Hitler to succeed, they financed his party and supported his movement. The business community wanted a strong man to fix the anarchy so that they could continue in an orderly fashion with the business of making money. Another reason was that they saw Hitler as a very simple, even a stupid man who could be directed and dangled like a puppet from above with an only limited understanding of politics
If Britain hoped to gain the upper hand they would need to have not only a better strategy but also be appropriately equipped. Germany, unfortunately was already demonstrating impressive military might in Spain. Initially Germany had rejected the leaders of the military uprising request to help the military uprising during the Spanish civil war in the 1930’s but eventually Hitler relented and gave Germany’s support. This battles gave the dictator an excuse to test-run his army and leave a bold impression on the world. In addition, Hitler’s interference brought Germany closer to Italy, who was also supporting the military uprising,, ultimately befriending the Italians and gain a potential ally for his struggle against the British and the French.
It nourished the hatred people had for Weimar and helped Hitler rise and gain power. It was part of many factors, which slowly destroyed the Weimar Government and the values it defended. It was stipulated that in the Weimar constitution, before Hitler became president, that the army had to swear an oath of loyalty to the president and republic. This meant that the army had to follow the orders appointed by the President. The Weimar’s military leadership was mostly composed of conservatives who did not support the new Republic.
Hitler promised to defy the Treaty of Versailles to restore German power (World). People thought this was a good thing Hitler was doing, so they listened to him. He now had more power than he ever did. In the years following the Central Powers’ defeat in World War I, unemployment was high, food and housing were expensive, and the German population resented the tough conditions of the Treaty of Versailles (Witherbee). Hitler was offering jobs, and people needed the money.
These plagues lowered the population drastically. This loss of population made it hard to find laborers and soldiers for war. This caused the empire to pay Germanic soldiers to fight for them. The need to pay for troops created a large debt for the Romans. Another reason that led to the decline of the Roman Empire was their water source coming in through lead pipes.
Roosevelt took office, he won the campaign dramatically, since almost everyone blamed President Hoover for the economic crisis. President Roosevelt promised he was going to be the president of Relief, Reform and Recovery. In my opinion, if Roosevelt would have pay the veterans their bonus early, that would have caused relief and they would have taken that out of the way and deal with other problems they had. Each problem could have been recovering little by little. The congress had sustained Roosevelt’s previous veto, but the senate overrode the veto in 1936.
Brundage found ways to appeal his claims to a wider range of people. Also, with America still in the midst of the Great Depression, people sought a way to bring success back into the country. Germany tried to persuade the US not to boycott the Olympics, and at the time was not demonstrating as much brutality to Jewish people as it would in the future. As a result, German Anti-Semitism was not as much of a concern as people may have originally assumed. All of these factors contributed immensely to the decision to participate in the 1936
Roosevelt changed America with the New Deal. Yes, it failed its utmost purpose of being created but it did refine economic security and stability. The New Deal made numerous jobs and if it wasn’t for America being the employer of citizens, millions of people would have been unable to provide from themselves and their families. Unemployment rates moderately decreased but profuse numbers of individuals were still jobless. When, the New Deal helped workers, it excessively favored white males.
