During the 1920's war was very prevalent. There was a great deal of violence that had been happening and something needed to be done to stop it and preserve peace.
In the spring of 1927 French Prime Minister, Aristide Briand suggested a bilateral non agression pact. Frank B. Kellog then proposed to change the pact to a general multilateral treaty, and the French accepted. Leading to the Kellogg-Briand Pact
I DECLARE WAR!
15 nations had signed the Kellogg-Briand Pact a year later. Including, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Czechoslovakia, France, Germany, British India, the Irish Free State, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Poland, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States. 47 more nations then followed.
The Kellogg-Briand Pact was a treaty in which nations agreed to not use war to solve disputes and conflicts no matter the nature or origin of the problem.
The Kellogg-Briand Pact was deemed ineffective. The Pact did not end war, nor stop the rise of militarism, and was unable to keep the international peace in upcoming years
