Besides the damage left from World War 1, there were many other reasons World War 2 was started. Some of those reasons are Appeasement, Hitler, The Treaty of Versailles, and The League of Nations. Hitler was right in the middle of all the action being that he took over Germany and became it's dictator and was the head of the Nazi Party. Along with that he was also apart of the Fascist party and did what ever he had to do to conquer everything he could.
Treaty of Versailles
On June 28, 1919 , Germany and the Allied Nations; along with Britain, France, Italy, and Russia, signed the Treaty of Versailles, ending World War 1.
I didn't sign yet!
League of Nations
The League of Nations was founded on January 10, 1920, as a result of the Paris Peace Conference that ended World War 1.
In 1934, Hitler was proclaimed the "Fuhrer" and became a dictator over Germany. Hitler wasn't pleased with the restrictions on the Treaty of Versailles and started to expand his power and his army.
All Hail Hitler
Im so POWERFUL!!
All Hail Hitler
After World War 1, the nations of Europe didn't want another war due to all the damage from World War 1. When certain countries like Germany became aggressive and started to take over countries and building their countries up, countries like Britain and France did nothing with hope of keeping peace.
What did we do!!
Along with Germany, there were other countries taken over by dictators. Dictators wanted the most power and were trying to expand their power and land. The first fascist government was in Italy, which was ruled by Mussolini and later on allied with Germany.
TAKE IT ALL!!
Due to the League of Nations letting Hitler do whatever, he proceeded to take over Austria (1938) and Czechoslovakia (1939). Then later on emulating Mussolini and putting his "beliefs" and "plans" in to play.
