Events That Led Up to WWII
The End of World War One.
On November 11, 1918 "The war to end war" finally came to an end. After more than four years of fighting Germany had surrendered to the Allies. The League of Nations forced Germany to sign the Treaty of Versailles. This was a treaty made to punish Germany, they were forced to admit full responsibility for the war, demilitarize themselves, and also pay mass amounts of money to the countries involved. Not only was this unreasonable but it made tensions high and the events that followed may have led up to the outbreak of another World War.
As Germany started to fall economically, and the take over of poverty started a man by the name Adolf Hitler started to rise up from the uproars. He was a very powerful political speaker in the newly formed Nazi Party. Hitler spoke to the nation, he stated that he would fix the economy and rise Germany back to power. The German people had nothing to lose they believed in him and he rose to be a great political power throughout Germany.
