A look at what went wrong in the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 that caused a second World War to break out only 20 years later. From the Great Depression to the rise of the Nazi Party, a look at how the key events of the era led to conflict in Europe.
World Wars I and II tore the heart out of the 20th century. However, the twenty years between them saw the rise of jazz, prohibition, the talkies, radio, and the motor car. Amid the rapid progress, historians describe the inter-war years as an age of anxiety. This richly detailed series explores the looming reality of the period: that the terms of peace merely set the stage for another world war.
