  • What does the word Appeasement mean?

  • Look it up and then use it in a sentence.


The league of nation how it failed and why that s important

The league of Nation- how it failed and why that’s important…


Because it w as d u m b

  • Weak

    • the League’s ‘powers’ were little more than going ‘tut-tut’. Sanctions did not work. It had no army.

  • America

    • the strongest nation in the world never joined; Britain and France were not strong enough to impose pace on their own

  • Structure

    • the League's organisation was muddled, so it took ages to do anything; members couldn’t agree, but decisions had to be unanimous - this paralysed the League

  • Depression

    • the world-wide Depression made countries try to get more land and power; they were worried about themselves, not about world peace

  • Unsuccessful

    • the more the League failed, the less people trusted it; in the end, everybody just ignored it

  • Members

    • the League’s main members let it down - Italy and Japan defied and left the League, France and Britain betrayed it

  • Big bullies

    • in the 1920s, the League had been quite successful with small, weak countries; in the 1930s, powerful countries like Germany, Italy and Japan defied the League - they were too strong for the League to stop them

Because it W.AS. D.U.M.B!!!!

“If the nations want peace, the League gives them the way by which peace can be kept. League or no League, a country which is determined to have a war can always have it.”

The 1930s historian H.A.L. Fisher sums up the failure of the League in his book, A History of Europe (1938).
