Storyboard Description

Appeasement fed into the cause of WWII because of how it enticed Hitler into wanting more and more until he took matters into his own hands. Fascism gave people the courage to stand up to other countries with differing beliefs. The strong sense of nationalism in Germany made them feel as though they could take on the world if they worked hard enough. Japan's military growth played a role in WWII because of how they dragged the U.S. into the war with their constant invasions of China and attack of Pearl Harbor. With so many lives lost the U.S. had to declare war. The Treaty of Versailles added to the cause due to how it blamed German for WWI and made them pay reparations in full for all of the damages because they lost. This was the start of their depression. The Stock Market crashed which contributed to a worldwide depression, this weakened Germany as well. With no one to turn to Hitler found his time to shine. Finally, The League of Nations and how they hadn't done anything to stop any of the fightings during the time of turmoil.
