The paper examines the string of historical events which resulted in the ending of World War One and the start of World War Two. It concentrates on the Treaty of Versailles as a major cause of WWII and shows how it set the stage for WWII due to the harsh reparations that angered the Germans, and eventually gave rise to Hitler's regime.

From the Paper:

"It is commonly said that WWI began due to the assassination of Austrian Archduke Ferdinand. Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated, in Sarajevo (the Bosnian capital), which was then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Those who wanted to reunite with Serbia assassinated Ferdinand. Urged on by Germany, Austria subsequently invaded Serbia. Serbia enlisted the help of Russia in their fight against Austria. Germany declared war on Russia and France, and
Russia and France responded. Britain declared war on Germany for the German violation of Belgium (BBC News). The whole world was soon involved in the war to end all wars, after the assassination of only one man."
