      • Mussolini ignored LON who banned weapon sales and put sanctions on rubber and metal
      • UK and FRA secretly signed Hoare Laval pact to give Abyssinia to ITA after Abyssinia appealed to LON who did nothing
      KEY QUESTIONS:- -What were the aims of the League? - How successful was the League in the 1920s? - How did weaknesses in the League’s organisation make failure inevitable? - How far did the Depression make the work of the League more difficult? - Why did the League fail over Manchuria and Abyssinia?

      • Dominated by UK and FRA – Japan left
      • USA did not join
      • Too slow to take action
      • Decisions had to be unanimous – all members states had equal voting rights – fine when in agreement, but cumbersome when not
      Depression – made countries try to get more land and power. Not interested in committing money and troops to the LON. Article III- Disarmament -1925 appointed a commission to look at disarmament but it failed ILO – International Labor Organisations had some successes (see 1920s) Court of International Justice – limited powers and successes (see Successes/Failures) Big Question:- To what extent was the League of Nations a success?
    • J417 Paper I – International Relations: The inter-war years 1919-39
      • Increasing militarism of GER, ITA and JAPAN
      • 1931-33 Manchuria with JAPAN – wanted a larger Empire
      • 1933 – Hitler assumes power in GER – rebuilds militarily – against TOV
      • 1935 – Abyssinia and MUSSOLINI ITA – who wanted a new Empire to match that of the Roman one
      • APPEASEMENT – see events from Munich Conference to Sept 1939
      • Some British people approved of Hitler’s policies
      • British people hoped a strong GER would stop growth of Communist Russia
      • Many people felt events in Europe were not Britain’s business
      • Many British people wanted peace
      • Many British agreed that TOV was unfair
      • Winston Churchill one of the few to oppose Chamberlain
      • BUT caused Hitler to believe he could do anything, gave Britain time to rearm, gave UK the high moral ground
      KEY QUESTIONS:- - What were the long-term consequences of Peace Treaties 1919-23? - What were the consequences of the failures of the League in the 1930s? - How far was Hitler’s foreign policy to blame for the outbreak of war in 1939? - Was the policy of Appeasement justified? - How important was the Nazi-Soviet pact? - Why did Britain and France declare war on Germany in 1939?
      • Hitler invaded the Rhineland 7 MARCH 1936
      • Broke TOV
      • It was a bluff – GER army only had 22,000 men
      • Had orders to retreat if challenged
      • Britain and France did nothing
      • Hitler got away with it!
      • Summer 1939 Hitler plans to take over Poland
      • First the Germans in Danzig demanded union, Hitler threatened war
      • Chamberlain promised the Poles UK would help out if attacked
      • August 1939 – Hitler made a secret pact with USSR – thought this would stop UK and FRA if GER attacked Poland and wanted to avoid war on two fronts.
      • Stalin had to buy time to avoid war and build up armed forces. Had to choose between GER and UK/FRA – chose GER as USSR would share POLAND
      • SAAR
      • TOV had put the Saar under the control of the LON for 15 years
      • 1935 inhabitants voted to return to GER
      • Many historians cite this as the first step to war

      • Broke TOV – UK and FRA did nothing
      • 1938 Hitler tried to take over SUDETENLAND by encouraging Sudeten Nazis to demand union. Hitler made plans to invade CZECHOSLOVAKIA
      • MUNICH 29 SEPT 1938 – Neville Chamberlain appeased Hitler - Britain and France gave Sudetenland to GER
      • 15 th March 1939 – Hitler’s troops marched into Czechoslovakia
      • 1 st Sept 1939 Hitler invades POLAND
