The Archduke next in line to the Austrian Hungarian throne was assassinated in his car during a drive in Serbia.
The assassination was the work of a terrorist group known as the Black Hand. However, I believe, there were many other more important causes that could have started the war. For example: the rivalry of countries, the alliances Triple Entente and Triple Alliance , the industries of Britain and Germany, Militarism, Rivalry and many more. With the rise and domination of fascism in Germany and Italy, the goal was to maintain peace, established by the Treaty of Versailles ended up in major disaster.
But what were the causes of this war? There were many causes to World War II, although there were four true causes: anger over the Versailles Treaty, Fascism and its increase in the European countries, and the nitrous goals of Adolf Hitler combined with the isolationism of America and Britain from war.
With all of these main causes combined together, the will create the most devastating. Sudetenland acquired by Hitler September The pact of St. Germain results in the lost of Sudetenland by Austria due to some reason that they were not able to get assistance from France, the Czech Premier, Benes, assembled alone.
Czechoslovakia fall March Hitler debilitated to bomb Prague, so the Czechs surrendered in March Italy invaded and took over Ethiopia in Adolf Hitler would later emulate Mussolini in his takeover of Germany. Another Fascist government was Spain ruled by the dictator Franco. The Germans were desperate for someone to turn around their economy and restore their national pride.
Hitler offered them hope. In , Hitler was proclaimed the "Fuhrer" leader and became dictator of Germany. Kaiser Wilhelm II and a number of other high-ranking German officials were to be tried as war criminals. Under the terms of Article of the treaty, the Germans accepted responsibility for the war and, as such, were liable to pay financial reparations to the Allies, though the actual amount would be determined by an Inter-Allied Commission that would present its findings in.
However, we know that this treaty failed because Germany invaded France during world war II. The final failed peace effort was the Paris Peace Act. At this conference all of the major countries, excluding Russia, and many smaller countries agreed that war was not a national policy and stated that they would try to resolve problems through diplomatic means. The only way that war was acceptable in this act was by means of self-defense. These did not directly cause world war II, but they made it possible by their obvious lack of power.
Countries still did not trust each other enough to follow through with the good ideas that they had. The third cause of world war II was the rise of Fascism. Fascism was a movement that began before world war I, but did not become a serious political power until Benito Mussolini took control of the Italian government in Under Mussolini Italy became a Totalitarian government where labor unions were abolished and political opponents were killed or silenced.
Rome Berlin Axis October This happened because combined violent fascist powers divide Europe into hostile camps. These did not directly cause world war II, but they made it possible by their obvious lack of power. Firstly, Germany was trying to expand its empire, and Britain and France had large empires The Germans were desperate for someone to turn around their economy and restore their national pride. But what were the causes of this war?
The Germans were desperate for someone to turn around their economy and restore their national pride. This created tension contributing to the outbreak of war. The Czechoslovakians called the agreement the "Munich Betrayal.
Reasons for the Second World War Germany Rearmament German rearmament started when Hitler left Disarmament Conference, expressing why authority would not beguile to his rank, Germany rearm level would be attained. He allied Germany with Mussolini and Italy. He declared himself the Third Reich. German leader, Hitler played an important, yet a very big role during this time. Japan began to look to grow their empire in order to gain new resources. The first of these problems was the lowered living standard of the Italian people.
The German Army and Navy were limited in size. Forceful leaders in several countries took advantage of these problems to seize power. Thus organized the Nazi-Soviet Treaty. The desire of dictators in Germany, Italy, and Japan to conquer additional territory brought them into conflict with the democratic nations. Hitler shortly attacks Poland, not keeping his promise.
The final country that was angry over the Versailles Treaty was Japan. Violence, death and aggression took place in the s and s in certain European nations. A country resented by many had no other choice but to feel optimistic toward Adolph Hitlers empty promises… making it substantially simple for him to gain power so quick. For example: the rivalry of countries, the alliances Triple Entente and Triple Alliance , the industries of Britain and Germany, Militarism, Rivalry and many more.
Is it just me, or does it seem rather ironic that the very thing that was meant to solve the first World War is the most important of all of the causes of the second.
