4. Outbreak WWII in Europe

Reasons for the Outbreak of World War II in Europe

  1. Weakness of League of nations
  2. Hitler’s expansionist policy
  3. Policy of appeasement

End of World War I

  • Representatives of European powers at the 1919 Paris Peace Conference hoped World War I to be ‘the war to end all wars’, but tension between powers continued to grow after war ended.
  • Aims of League of Nations of disarmament and collective security were not met.
  • The League’s weakness enabled Hitler to aggressively pursue his expansionist policy and made Britain and France to pursue appeasement policy.
