League of Nations

Hi All,

Well done on completing the extended response yesterday. To see just how relevant this study is to today, check out this video from a weekend match in Greece. The player who gave the Nazi salute in celebration of his goal has been banned for life from all Greece domestic and national teams:

Today we look at the League of Nations. The League of Nations can be understood as a prototype of the United Nations. It was an American idea which was established as part of the Treaty of Versailles. The hope was that as a supranational body it would be able to settle disputes between nations by imposing sanctions, with troop involvement a final option.

The League failed for a number of reasons, not least because the USA refused to join, following an isolationist policy following WWI.

Please complete the following tasks:
