The outbreak of World War II was sparked by the German war machine’s Blitzkrieg attack on Poland on September 1, 1939. This event was to plunge Europe and the world into the greatest conflict that the world has ever seen. The causes go back to the flaws in the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 but begin in earnest with the Great Depression which provides the opportunity for Hitler and Germany to re-arm and then re-occupy the Rhineland. With the failure of the League of Nations, it was left to Britain and France to try to combat Hitler. Their policy of appeasement only seemed to encourage Hitler first in Austria and then at Munich.
Following World War I Germany fell in to a period of economic failure, famine, and social and political unrest. This period is what gave rise to the Nazi party, and their regime. The Nazi parties assault on the Jewish religion began with them blaming the Jews for all the perils that the country had gone through. As soon as Hitler gained power the German parliament was burned to the ground. This led to demise of the German democracy, and the dictatorship of Hitler, and the total control of the Nazi party.

Once his attack on Britain failed due to a thick, annoying fog, he decided that he would break his secret pact with the Soviet Union and invade. He becomes too confident and to greedy, “Clearly, no longer was it Lebensraum

At the bottom of the front page of each issue, in bold letters, the paper proclaimed, "The Jews are our misfortune!" The newspaper also regularly featured cartoons of Jews in which they were caricatured as hooked-nosed and ape-like. The influence of the newspaper was far-reaching, by 1938 about a half million copies were distributed weekly. Soon after he became chancellor, Hitler called for new elections in an effort to get full control of the Reichstag, the German parliament, for the Nazis. The Nazis used the government apparatus to terrorize the other parties.
World War I began because of many obstacles that America would have to sustain in order for the war to diminish. On May 7, 1915, the German army sank a ship called the Lusitania. At this time, 1,198 people lost their lives and included 128 American people. This ship was carrying war shipments from the United States to England. The passengers on the ship knew there may be a possible attack on the ship but Woodrow Wilson condemned this attack as illegal and inhuman.
The British blockade kept all trades away from the Germans, including food (Ghost Liners 124).Yet, when the Germans retaliate, the Americans hate them for it. The Germans received blame for a crime that followed the rules of war blockades. America shames the Germans for killing civilians warned of the possible danger.

10th grade Social Studies assignment The failings of the democracy in Germany between 1918 and 1923 Why was the new democratic system in Germany unpopular by 1923, and how was Hitler able to take advantage of that unpopularity? After their defeat in the First World War, Germany and its government faced many harsh consequences which had a great impact on the entire country and its political system. Each consequence created a substantial change in German history which made a chain of events that led to the rein of Adolf Hitler. Because the new democratic system proved to be unsuccessful, the people of Germany blamed their government and after that, things began to get chaotic and everyone suffered. The problems began after the 1st World War, and after the German government signed the papers at the Treaty of Versailles, agreeing to its conditions and punishments, the government was very much resented by the people.
Why were the Germans defeated in World War Two between 1941 and 1945? By Katie Goodwin The Germans (along with Japan) were defeated in World War two by the allied forces; the USA, the UK and the USSR. These were not natural allies, they have different political beliefs, the USA and the UK were Capitalists with USSR as communists, and they only became allies because they had a common enemy, the axis. The war stretched between 1st September 1939 when Hitler and the Nazis invaded Poland causing the UK and France to declare war, until the Russians reached Berlin causing Hitler to commit suicide and Germany to surrender on 7th May 1945 then Atomic Bombs being dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki on 14th August causing the final surrender of Japan. The mistakes that occurred by the Germans assisted the axis empire to be defeated, some examples of these errors are attempting to fight the war on multiple fronts, deciding to attack Russia as well as being at war with the USA as both of these countries could easily outnumber and surround the Nazis although Germany may have had little choice in fighting the USA as Britain was their closest ally and they would have got involved to defend their friend and Russia was planning to enter the war a few months after she was attacked anyway.
