Germany lost opportunities to fix its’ economy because of losing land, and Germans wanted the land back, which is exploited by Hitler by saying he was in favor of war do they could get the land back. Paying reparations caused Germans to lose self-respect and made them angry. Hitler again exploits the Germans displeasure by discontinuing the payments. Again, the Germans are exploited by Hitler by restoring pride when they had been humiliated for being blamed for the war. This caused many Germans to accept the Nazi regime and probably join the army.
This demonstrates how the country’s economy suffered. It lost the territories where the sea ports stood. They were no longer able to trade as much as they did before. Because they couldn’t trade, they didn’t make money enough to keep its economy stable and
Can Peace Lead to War? Yes, peace can lead to war. A temporary peace, or one built up quickly can cause tensions for the oppressed and the oppressors. As in the Treaty of Versailles, Germany was reprimanded for things they did not do and France, Britain and the U.S were fighting with each other over the terms Germany was to agree to.
foreign and domestic policies because it scared Americans and caused tension within the country and worldwide, leading to a lack of trust within the country. The second Red Scare, propaganda, Russian growth in power, nuclear tension, and the Hollywood Ten were all parts of the war that damaged American policies. Civilians lost trust between one another and within the government. Communism intimidated many people, and the Cold War made it appear as though it would soon take over the world. However, Truman and Eisenhower made it evident that the United States was fighting for innocent civilians worldwide, but they could not promise a steady government or country while the tension exists with Russia, but the nation is doing what they must(Document C).
The cause of WW1 wasn’t just one event, but multiple things that added up: classes, nationalism, and alliances between countries. As the war was about to start, the countries prepared for battle, although they didn’t know the outcome but they were ready to fight to the death. By 1914, the power key that was imperial alliances had been given a crucial spark; the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand triggered series of war declarations that would eventually grow into the most devastating war the world had ever experienced. Archduke Franz Ferdinand was nephew Emperor Franz Josef and heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
TRU: The main reason Marshall Aid has been brought into action is that Europe is in need of support and needs to rebuild due to it being ruined by the events of World War 2. We offered Europe $13 Billion dollars and the resources needed to jumpstart the dying economy and restore Europe back to its former glory. The plan was gladly accepted by most; however the offer was rejected by the USSR and its “allies”. INT:
The Germans also hated the loss of territory. Germany lost a tenth of its land and they claimed that the treaty was simply an attempt to destroy their economy. The Treaty forced German people to live in other countries. The people of Saar disliked the settlement much as most of them were Germans who obviously didn’t want to be ruled by the Allies for 15 years. Germans were also angry that they could not unite with the Austrian Germans.
Nationalism, Militarism, and the alliance system combined with the spark of a tragedy was all it took to throw the world into a blaze of chaos. From assignation combined with rivalry spawned a conflict that no nation in the world would be free of. The rivalry between the countries of Europe creating militaries inflated to sizes never need other than to be to bigger army. The nationalism putting stress onto the people and leaders of each country, as pride in one’s nation shifts from a force for good to a cause of war. The alliance system aided by Nationalism and Militarism caused one of the largest conflicts of the world.
The actions that would have needed to be different in order for Germany to succeed are that France had to be defeated and that never happened, and also the speed aspect of the plan was non-existent due to unpredictable setbacks of armies, transportation, and communication. The outcome of the Schlieffen plan did change the war because before the main issue was between Austria-Hungary and Serbia fighting over the annexation of Bosnia. When the two of them started fighting Serbia pulled in Russia to help them. Once the Schlieffen plan was carried out Germany had then been added to the war along with France. Great Britain was also added to the war due to the Germans jeopardizing the neutrality of Belgium.
It limited their land, cut back their military, forced them to pay for damages, and brought a sense of guilt and embarrassment over all of the German population. In turn the Germans became angry and the result of that anger was what we call today, World War II, or The Great War. This war that lasted four long years with many casualties may have prevented if not for the Versailles
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.
After World War One Germany was suffering badly, because of this Hitler took power over Germany. Germans listened to him because he was their last resort, they had nowhere else to turn. Any longer and they would be suffering far worse. The Holocaust happen because there was violence outbreaks, recklessness, and families were being destroyed. When this happened people fought back and they try to stop it
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.
Some of the short term impacts that happened are, at the time it had reduced the number of effective empires in the world. It brought them all the way down to 2 effective empires, the United States and the Soviet Union. During World War 2 another short term impact that causes a huge problem was when it bankrupted the British. Though the good thing was that it occupied the French which the United Nations then planned attack against them since they had become allies with the Germans. Also Hitler claimed that Austria was on there side and then invade and took it over.
By doing this, the Germans killed many Americans unjustly. If the U.S didn 't do anything, then the Germans would 've kept sinking more ships and killing the Americans that were onboard. Also, the Allies were losing the war. The soldiers were exhausted from all the years of fighting (trench warfare), it took a long time to even advance.
