The League Of Nations Source Analysis
● In this source we can see a dog that seems aggressive and angry, he has a
muzzle that says " The League Of Nations " and a big pointing necklace with a
medal that says " The dog of war ". This means that the dog represents war and
the muzzle the League of Nations
● So the message is that when the war finished people hoped The League would
help to avoid future wars, but this was only temporary because everybody knows
that when you put a muzzle on an aggressive dog when you take it off it only
makes it worst so thats what act happened with The League
● This source shows Wilson offering a branch, to a white dove, that says " League
of Nations". We know that the symbol of peace is a white dove carrying an olive
branch on the mouth.
● The message in this picture is that The League wanted a peaceful world, but the
branch, which is representing the peace, is too heavy for the dove to carry. The
league wanted the whole world to be peaceful, that is a lot of peace, and a big
branch for one dove to carry.
" It is not enough just to win the war. We must win it in such a way as to keep the future
peace of the world " Wilson, 1918
● What we understand about this quote is that winning the war was not the only
thing that The League of Nations cared about, they also cared about keeping
peace between countries in the future.
● The message is that although the war was over The League wanted to have a
peaceful world, and so they kept helping people with their jobs, living conditions,
but also, wanted to abolished slavery and avoid future wars.
In this picture we can see a man, Wilson, with a pipe. The bowl from where he is
making the bubbles from has the word “Idealism” and the bubble he is making says
“League of Nations”. We see bubbles as beautiful but at the same time they are fragile.
● The message in this picture would be that “The League of Nations” was a great
and beautiful idea but it was very fragile and in the end it popped up.
