Interwar Years: An Overview
The Interwar Years are the years between WWI and WWII. During this time, most nations were tired of conflict. They believed that the League of Nations and the Treaty of Versailles would cause a longstanding peace among the nations involved. Most nations were experiencing an economic depression during these years and were too inwardly focused to notice the terror that was rising in Germany. It was during this time that the Nazi party was gaining control. Under the control of Hitler, Germany would break the Treaty along with Italy, who eventually allied with Germany forming the Axis Powers. The Munich Conference of 1938 was an attempt to avoid war, while also stopping Germany and Italy from taking over any more countries. It was not effective.
