problems with the dawes plan
Problems with the Dawes Plan
  • Treaty of Versailles had been changed.
  • Germany now dependent on US loans.
    • GB and France also dependent on them for reparation payments.
  • League of Nations AIM = DISARMAMENT
  • Germany was FORCED to DISARM in the ToV
  • LoN needed to get other countries to CHOOSE to DISARM.
  • 1921 Washington Conference
  • 1923 GB rejected a disarmament treaty that France had agreed to
  • 1926 plans for a disarmament conference took 5 years to complete and Germany rejected these in 1933.
  • The LoN had failed but did not seem to be a problem at the time – WHY?
locarno honeymoon
  • It was greeted with celebration in Europe. Peace looked like lasting. Goodwill spread. Germany even joined the LoN in 1926. Things looked good.

What had been missed out?

  • This was the name given to the period after the Locarno Treaties were signed.
  • Britain and Italy agreed to protect them if Germany broke this promise.
  • Germany accepted the Rhineland would stay demilitarised.
  • Germany accepted the borders it held with Belgium and France.
  • France and Germany agreed to settle disputes through the League of Nations.

  • Nothing to do with Cornflakes!
  • Signed in 1928 and agreed
    • Condemned war as a means of solving disputes.
    • Settlement of diputesshopuld only be by peaceful means.
  • BUT
    • Nothing to say what would happen if someone broke the Pact
    • Not all countries signed it.
    • All states agreed to keep their armies for self-defence – what about disarmament?
