Out of all the wars that the world has gone through, none has been more devastating as World War II. But what caused this war? Well, World War II had six major causes: anger over the Versailles Treaty, the failure of peace efforts after World War I, the rise of Fascism, the goals of Hitler, the isolationism by America and Britain, and the re-armament of Europe.
The leader of Germany at the time of WW2 and the person who most think started WW2 was a man named Adolph Hitler. Adolph Hitler was born in Austria. By the time that World War 1 started in 1914, he was living in Germany. He served well in the German Army and for that he earned a medal for bravery. At the end of the war Hitler decided to take up politics. By 1921 he was already the founding leader of the Nazi party. Hitler was an incredibly racist man and he had a great hate for Jews. By 1933, Hitler gained political power by winning the election. Soon after he made himself absolute dictator, calling himself the Fuhrer which means \"Leader\". By the end of the 30\'s he was already sending Jews off too concentration camps to meet a horrifying death.
I believe that Hitler was one of the greatest causes of World War 2. Although there are many other reasons, he was definitely one of them. Another reason was the Treaty of Versailles. This was the treaty that was signed at the end of World War 1. This treaty outlined the rules that Germany must follow because of their defeat by Britain and France. Many Germans were angered by the treaty, for most of the rules in the treaty were unfair and Germany lost a great amount of wealth. One of the cruellest reasons for the war was Hitler\'s racist hate for Jews. He would send them off in cattle cars to places called concentration camps were they would be slaughtered by the thousands.
