Through these founding’s the League of Nations came into being (Diner, 2008; Vadney, 1998). The expectation was once this was established arms race would disappear.

Through Wilson, America was seen as a positive nation with good standing a midst war and tension in its effort of giving hope, aid, support and council to affected powers.

These items were urged by all the powers and particularly Great Britain and France (Kennedy, 2010). According to article 231 in the Treaty of Versailles, The Allied and Associated Governments affirm and Germany accepts the responsibility of Germany and her allies for causing all the loss and damage to which the Allied and Associated Governments and their nationals have been subjected as a consequence of the war imposed upon them by the aggression of Germany and her allies (Strachan, 2003).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
