Welcome to The Aftermath!
Introduction - Worldwar-1.net - A World War 1 (Great War) Timeline, detailing events, day by day from 1914 through to 1919.
The terms of the Treaty of Versailles imposed upon Germany at the end World War 1 sowed the seeds of World War 2 by stripping Germany of territory and requiring her to pay huge reparations to the victorious powers. By the early 1920's Germany was buckling under this economic pressure and with mass unemployment, rampant inflation and French occupation of the Saarland region, the future looked bleak. Using this uncertaintly and lack of political will from the Weimar government the communists and Nazi's fought for control of the streets and the balot box, culminating in the eventual election of the Nazi's and Hitler being appointed Chancellor.
