The seeds of Second World War were sown in the treaty of Versailles. It was because the treaty was forced on Germany after her defeat in the First World war. Some of its terms were:
  • Several harsh restrictions were imposed on Germany. S he had to pay a huge war indemnity and her mineral rich areas of Saar and Rhineland was occupied by France.
  • All German colonies in Asia and Africa were forcefully captured. Her military power was also reduced.
All these harsh terms led to the emergence of militant nationalism. There was dissatisfaction in Germany with the terms of the Treaty of Versailles. Germans wanted to avenge the wrongs done to them by the victorious nations by imposing the terms of the Treay of Versailles
