    Authors:
    John C. Miles
    The First World War ended in November 1918. As nations struggled to recover from the losses of more than four years of total war, the settlements that politicians agreed helped lay the foundations for an even more devastating war only twenty years later.Between the Wars focuses on this critical time in history. It examines the treaties that ended the First World War and looks at the social, political and economic events of the 1920s and 30s. These include the creation of the League of Nations, revolutions in Russia, the splitting up of the Ottoman Empire and the creation of Palestine, the Spanish Civil War, the Great Depression in the USA, fascism in Europe, Stalin's Soviet Union, the militarisation of Japan and the rise of the Nazis in Germany, which ultimately led to the Second World War and the Holocaust.This fascinating book perfectly sets the scene for the study of the Second World War, showing how the twenty years between the wars was a time of huge global political change, propelling us from one war to another.
