What caused the end of the League? The real death of the League was in December 1935, not 1939 or 1945. one day it was a powerful body imposing sanctions, seeming more effective than ever before; the next day it was an empty sham, everyone scuttling from it as quickly as possible. What killed the League was the publication of the Hoare- Laval Plan. The judgement of British Historian A.J.P. Taylor on the impact of the Abyssinia Crisis Hoare and Laval secretly agreed to split Abyssinia up. They agreed to give Italy much of the fertile lands in the North and south of the country as well as other areas in the south for Italian economic expansion. This would reduce the size of Abyssinia by half its size. They decided all of this without the consent of Abyssinia It showed that although GB and France talked tough they wouldn’t follow through and Mussolini was to be rewarded for his aggression Hoare and Laval were forced to resign when the plans were leaked by the press.
