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.
The world was sent into turmoil during and after the first world war due to the complexities of its origins and the mayhem brought with it. The world never wanted or believed that anything that extreme and ghastly would ever happen again. Tragically, an even worse war was just on the horizon and was already being placed into motion as soon as World War I ended. World War II was unspeakable and monstrous war that caused damage to the whole world, especially Europe, and turned everywhere into a battle zone. But this horrendous war did not just begin spontaneously, it was created by various events that when combined created the worse war in the history of humankind. It began with the Treaty of Versailles which left Germany weakened and led to
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.
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. Germans ' appeal of Hitler and the Nazi Party in the early 1930s was due to their nationalistic senses, Hitler 's magnetism, as well as the possibility
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
The Treaty of Versailles: Viewing Germany as the enemy of conflict, European Allied forces decided to bring forth a treaty to the recently defeated Germany of WW1. The Treaty was presented to the German leaders to sign on May 7, 1919 which stated that Germany was to surrender Belgium, Czechoslovakia and Poland. One of the most embarrassing articles of the treaty was article 231, known as ‘The War Guilt Clause’ which forced Germany to admit full responsibility to the outbreak of WW1. The effect of this article was that Germany was liable for damages to material with Georges Clemenceau insisting on compensation repayments. Clemenceau and the French;
Who would've thought that the treaty of Versailles would have caused world war 2. Many people didn't think that the treaty of versailles would of caused ww2. The treaty of versailles was created to make peace between the country. How would have the treaty of versailles contribute to the ww2. But it did by treating germany harshly in the following ways territorial losses, military restrictions, economic reparations and war guilt which will be explain in the following paragraphs.
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.
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.
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. Of course, every country who participated in the war had some sort of reason. Although it wasn’t a single country
There are a a lot of events that led to the beginning of World War II. But, a lot of the events leading to World War II were a direct result due to World War I. One event leading to World War II started with Hitler rising to power in the 1930s, as he was trying to rebuild Germany. As Germany, was crippled due to World War I and the Treaty of Versailles. Germany was crippled due to World War I and the Treaty of Versailles because Germany lost the war, had to take responsibility, and pay a large amount of money. This caused Germany to be in a turmoil. Another cause of the World War II was that after World War I, the European nations wanted to maintain peace , but Hitler did not. Hitler became aggressive and started to take land from neighboring
On July 28, 1914 the Great War began, but no one had any idea how much this war would change everyone’s lives. World War I would last over four years, and would claim anywhere from nine million lives to thirteen million lives. On November 11, 1918 Germany formally surrendered, and now that the war was finally over it was time to set some rules to ensure that peace was here to stay. Although everyone was doing what they thought was best for everyone involved in reality it may have all been a terrible idea. Unfortunately, it is possible that there was so much guilt and shame thrown into these “rules” that it lead to World War II.
The beginning of the consequences for Germans started off with territorial loss. In document A, it is shown on a map that the Versailles Treaty caused major land loss to the Germans. The lost land was not just ordinary to the Germans, the resources as well were very valuable. Four major land areas were lost including Alsace, Lorraine, Danzig and Polish Corridor. With the loss of these countries, that also meant a decrease in population because the people living in the four countries were no longer a part of Germany.
Germany, in turn, was looking for revenge and started WW2. However a permanent peace were the blame is shared, no blame is placed or placed with consent or negotiations as well as negotiated terms with oppressed can lead to a longer peace and smaller wars. The Paris Peace Treaty, the treaty that ended WW2, is a great example of this as another world war has not taken place. Nonetheless, human nature today is charged with conflict, which is
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.
