This paper examines the argument that the social and political state of Europe, the United States, and Japan after World War I made the second coming of global warfare inevitable. The root causes for each of the major countries (USA, Russia, England, Germany, Italy, Japan, etc.) are examined in detail and are intricately tied together to paint a picture of how an event as tragic as World War was an inevitable outcome of World War I.
From the Paper:"While many historians consider the German invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939, the spark that ignited the inferno of World War II the embers of global conflict had been smoldering unchecked for some time before then. In many ways, the vindictive and pernicious demands set in place by the Treaty of Versailles on June 28, 1919 made a phoenix-like second coming of German forces bent on vindication and conquest almost inevitable. While German angst percolated, half way around the globe similar discord was brewing in the Pacific with the Japanese invasion of Manchuria in 1931, a blatant violation of previously signed non- aggression treaties by the major Asian countries. These two sparks ignited by German demoralization and Japanese aggression, separated by thousands of miles, ultimately led to events that would pull England, France, Italy, Russia, Northern Africa, and the United States into a two sided struggle for world domination that would leave its mark on mankind forever."
