The World War One ending treaty, the Treaty of Versailles, played a major factor in the beginnings of World War Two. The treaty locked Germany into payment for damages during World War One, (war reperations). The treaty also took away land from Germany and humiliated them. This ticked Germany off and the up incoming Adolf Hitler. Germany's nationalism a scense of pride in their country grew and grew as a result of this humiliation. The extreme end of this nationalism was the Nazi party led by Hitler. also someone called george kerridge fecked a chicken
