2 Causes Of World War II

3 In the 1930 s, Italy, Germany, and Japan aggressively sought to build new empires. The League of Nations was weak. Western countries were recovering from the Great Depression and did not want anymore war

4 As a result, acts of aggression occurred and were allowed to go unchecked.

11 As a result of these aggressive acts, the Western democracies adopted a policy of appeasement. Under this policy, nations gave into aggressive demands to maintain peace.

12 At the Munich Conference in 1938, the western democracies agreed that Germany would seize control of the Sudetenland from Czechoslovakia.

13 In the face of this weakness, Japan, Italy, and Germany signed the Rome-Berlin-Tokyo Axis

14 In August 1939, Hitler and Stalin signed the Nazi-Soviet Pact, agreeing not to fight each other.
