(S8.E9.) Chpt 5 Between WWI and WWII

Between World War One and World War Two

Many historians argue that World War Two is a tragic continuation of unresolved issues and the harsh armistice agreement from World War One. The Great Depression was an important catalyst as well. While both the U.S. and Germany experienced the same economic consequences with massive unemployment, loss of personal savings, and devasted business activity, both nations chose very different paths for recovery.

World War One and the Russian Revolution

Chapter Four focuses on the military battles that occurred after a century of economic competition among the Europeans. The same economic trading alliances of the 1800s become the military allies of much of the 1900s. Marx had prediced the first Communist revolution to occur in an industrialized society such as Great Britain. Instead, it occurs in Russia. WWI helps to serve as the catalyst for the revolution.
