First and Second World War compare
The paper should be at least 5 pages long, double-spaced.
Compare and contrast the post-war era in Europe after the First World War and after the Second World War. Why was Europe so much more peaceful after the Second World War? For the post-World War 1 period, be sure to discuss the Versailles treaty, the rise of fascism and Nazism, and the policies of appeasement; for the post-World War 2 period, be sure to discuss the policies of the United States and the Soviet Union, the Cold War (the Truman doctrine and the Marshall Plan) the division of Germany and the drive towards European unity. In both cases, be sure to discuss the economic situation (both in the interwar period and the post WW2 period.) Devote at least one long paragraph to the situation in Europe following the end of the Cold War. Most importantly use evidence from the readings to support your arguments. I encourage you to use primary sources as well. Be sure to have a thesis and to express yourself clearly and concisely.
So far, 30 years had passed since the commencement of the First World War and the end of the Second World War. Both wars shared common grounds as it was the result of battles fought among European countries. Notably, the heart of war involved Germany and its European neighbors. By then, these countries were the most developed nations in the world, but their civilization did not prevent them from battling each other in two world wars. Germany attacked France twice within twenty-six years while also invading Luxembourg, Holland, and Belgium (Loveridge, 2016). Notably, both wars arose from regional struggles to conquer the world. Immediately after the Second World War, two superpowers got into a nuclear prowess show that created tension across the world. Arguably, Europe was much more peaceful after the Second World War due to the aftermath and lessons learned by Europe regarding their division and the need to unite.
