Recognizing that the war started because there was no formal system for working out differences, they created the League of Nations, an international congress that allowed different countries to openly speak about their concerns to other countries.
After taking power, Hitler wanted to do two risky and dangerous things; provoke a war in Europe and unite the German-speaking peoples of Europe into a large nation state. He was lucky, these two ideas were complementary. His first step towards these two goals was through German nationalism.
Struggling to meet the demands of the Treaty of Versailles, Germany grew reliant on borrowing vast sums of money from America in order to pay its war debt to England and France.
