The Heinous Seed Essay

910 words - 4 pages

The Great War, or World War I, was the first modern warfare and the first total war in which almost everyone participated in it, both directly or indirectly. After the war, President Woodrow Wilson hoped that the Great War will be a war to “end all wars”; unfortunately, almost twenty years later, World War II erupted in Europe and the world plunged into an even deadlier war. With the end of World War I, the Treaty of Versailles was drafted to secure peace throughout Europe, but the cruel and unreasonable terms made World War II almost inevitable.

Although the eagerness to repair their own country was understandable, the Allies shouldn’t ask for such a huge amount of reparations from Germany. With the establishment of League of Nations, Europe should’ve work together to recover from the devastating war instead of putting the blame and the responsibility all on one nation. The huge reparations only fueled the German’s hatred toward the Allies and made the Germans turned to Adolf Hitler because Germany plunged into a depression from the burden of reparations. When Hitler promised people jobs and a better economy, the desperate Germans supported Hitler, voted him as the Chancellor of Germany, and...
