In addition to that, the forcing of the Treaty of Versailles on Germany did not bode well with the Germans. They did not feel that they had really lost the war. And then forced to assume war guilt on top of downsizing it’s army, limiting it’s boundaries, and paying for war damages. It’s pretty evident that Germany would want to punish those that put them in such an impoverished state. The Germans were struggling due to the treaty.
Also, the response of D-Day contributed to their loss because many German officers were concerned about the war and affected their confidence. In conclusion, when Germany lost on D-Day, they started to lose every battle as well. D-Day was the reason why the Germans starting to fall in power. Despite their efforts, they could not win battles against the three power formations because they were too weak by then. Eventually, the three formation defeated Germany and put an end to the Nazi power.
In conclusion, The Treaty of Versailles was unquestionably the reason why World War II started. The Treaty was unreasonably vicious to the Germans by forcing them to give up valuable territory. Also, the Treaty restricted the number of troops Germany was allowed to have. Finally, the Treaty of Versailles imposed severe reparations on Germany that just angered the Germans. This bold treaty gave rise to Hitler who ignored the soldier restrictions and immediately stopped all reparation payments.
World War II was a grueling period for both America and Europe at home and on the battleground. The situation was even worse for the men fighting on the front lines. The way the men lived to the way they died during that moment in our history was glorious yet tragic. The soldiers stories helped us understand what happened during their time overseas. Band of Brothers by Stephen E. Ambrose is a non-fiction book that is a great description of how brutal it was to be a part of World War II by how the soldiers described their history and stories, book reviews over the book, and the impact of the book itself.
But this protection did not translate into effective use of the mobile reserve force to repel the Allied landings. However, given the extreme operational constraints that General Blaskowitz was dealing with in August 1944 it is my opinion that he did the best he, or anyone else, could have done under those circumstances…achieve failure. In the most basic critique of German efforts to balance operational factors and protect their COG it is easy to simply state they failed. This can be justified through their fa... ... middle of paper ... ... LOCs made the Germans unable to get their COG to the fight in time to influence the landings. In conclusion, the Allied efforts targeting the German critical vulnerabilities indirectly resulted in isolating and minimizing the effectiveness of the German COG.
Also what was unfair the German's were not there when the terms where drawn up, so this made them unhappy but they also felt the terms were hypocritical and unjust. The terms of the Treaty were too harsh and the German people refused to agree to them The Treaty crippled Germany by making them pay reparations for the damages caused. Hitler was a wise man and used this to his advantage. He knew that the German's were in serious trouble with money and debts, sp he made promises to get them out of the hardship and out of unemployment, he used his 25 point program to try and achieve this. Hitler spoke well of these things he promised to do and won many Germens over, as they were still bitter over the signing of the Treaty, by the Weimar Government.

Now with the deal Ebert was able to suppress opposition. Example of this would be the Spartacist Uprising being crushed in 1919 and the death of the Communist leaders. Many Germans would be unhappy because they could see that Ebert was using the army and Freikorps to suppress opposition which meant they weren’t allowed to demonstrate their ideas. Also the Freikorps methods were very harsh and many Germans saw that this was wrong and wasn’t democratic to which the Government was aiming to make Germany as.
World War I was the cause for World War II I believe that world war 1 led to world war 2. the main reason is the treaty of Versailles. the allies totally screwed Germany and were totally unfair. The allies forbade Germany to have an army of more than 100,000 men, a fleet of more than 36 warships, submarines of any kind, and military air craft. They could not maintain fortifications or military installations within 50km of the Rhine land. And to all that Germany was required to pay large sums of money as reparations for damages that the allies had taken during the war.
Every historian has his or her own take on this event, but almost all American historians will express it as an important United States victory. In his article “Questionable Objective: The Brittany Ports, 1944”, A. Harding Ganz focuses on the “logistical planning” and “strategic considerations” of high ranking officials during the invasion . He continues talk of planning and proper procedures, and eventually encounters the actual battle itself. He describes the D-Day invasion in terms of the raw number of soldiers, but soon changes his positive outlook on the invasion. He says: On 6 June 1944 the allied forces invaded Festung Europa in Operation Overload.
