The Aftermath of the WarEdit

The Aftermath of the war

The juggernaut of destruction that was the first world war had ended in November 1918, as the armistice was reached. A war to define the rest of the century was over, but a greater legacy would be left, which would lead the world down the path of nazism into the second world war, which subsequently led to the growth of political tensions between capitalist and communist nations America and Russia. The fate of the world would be decided in the conferences across Europe as the victors launched diktats over the triple alliance and other opposition nations. The Aftermath of the war section will take a look at how these meetings decided the consequential actions for the losing nations, and the impact this would have on the social, political and economic balances of these countries. Stay tuned to find out more when Flashback covers this issue in December!

World War one was a conflict which would alter society forever. After 4 years of continuous fighting, a war in which millions lost their lives, the alliance, most prominently embodied by Germany, finally began to crumble. On the 6th November 1918, German High Command opened communications with Woodrow Wilson on one topic; the possibility of a ceasefire. 5 days later, the war officially was over, as the German’s signed the armistice with the entente (or the allies). The world, from here on was forever changed. The result of the war would be tremendous; it would create a shift in politics, economics, culture and social order that was drastically different to the pre-war values and sentiments held by all nations in the world. Undeniably the largest impact of World War One was the monumental loss ...>>

When historians refer to Weimar Germany, they often relate to the series of troubles the nation faced during the 1920’s; often of political, economic or social descent, embodied by a series of revolutions, depressions, inflations, coalitions and decisions. The Weimar Republic, the political system which is responsible much of Germany’s political instability, emerged following the German revolution in November 1918. In 1919, a national assembly convened in Weimar, where the new democratic constitution was conceived, written and adopted in August of that year. It’s easy to begin to criticise the Weimar Government’s failure, but...>>
