Chapman 1 10 . Why wasn’t World War I the “War to end all Wars?” World War I was the largest war in recorded history at the time . Fifteen million people were killed as a result of the war, and millions others were injured . This war was supposed to be the final war, the War to end all Wars but as we well know it was not . Why, after millions were killed and injured during the war, was WWI not the final war? I would have to say that with four of the major imperial powers out of the way, WWI left a lot of room for a new power to rise up against the rest of the world . Germany was the most likely candidate to rise up against the League of Nations . The German people had many reasons to hate just about everyone . For one their leader Kaiser was a coward, once he saw that Germany was losing the battle he fled to Holland, leaving the German people confused in a time of need . Not only did Germany lack good leadership, they had no money . Once the war ended with the treaty of Versailles the Germans were basically screwed.
