Why is ww2 a continuation of ww1?
Also, why was WWII a continuation of World War 1?
In WWII, Hitler wants to expand Germany to have only German speaking peoples. When Hitler expanded into Poland, it caused WWII when France and Great Britain declared war on Germany. Another main piece that shows that WWII was a continuation of WWI was the Treaty of Versailles which ended WWI in 1918.
Likewise, how is ww1 related to ww2? The WWI-WWII Connection. The Armistice put an end to the war in Europe. The following June, the Treaty of Versailles put an end to the hostilities between Germany and the Allied powers. That was exactly five years after the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, the event that started the gears of war grinding.
Moreover, why is ww2 not a continuation of ww1?
World War II was not a continuation of World War I. World War II did not continue as World War I but it was rather due to the results of World War I. Treaty of Versailles was a peace agreement to stop the war were they was putting Germany in their place by making them admit and pay for damage for war.
Should ww1 and ww2 be considered one war?
The German armistice ended major fighting between the Allies and Central/Axis. If there was no treaty, the armistice would simply go on and World War II would be the same as WWI. So lets call it the World War. Before the 1931 annexation of Manchuria from China to Japan, another global war seemed imminent.
