The League of Nations was not formed until 1920. Therefore, it had no bearing on World War One. After the League was formed, it failed and a case can be made that if the US had joined the League, it would have been a more viable organization.

Sanctions against Germany were too severe resulting in severe economic hardship that caused the German people to seek an alternative. Hitler, although a bad choice, was perceived as their only option at the time.

Which war?The League of Nations didn't even exist in WW1. The above answer is off topic and meaningless.

The league of Nations DID exist...

In an effort to avoid future destructive conflicts, at the end of WWI, the diplomats who gathered for the Paris Peace Talks created The League of Nations. Their main principal, of course, was to maintain world peace. The league had two major flaws that ultimately caused it's failure. First, was the lack of power it held to enforce decisions made by the league. Second, it relied on collective security as a tool for the preservation of world peace. The basic premise underlying collective security arrangements was the argument the concept that aggression against one state was considered aggression against ALL states, which had pledged to aide one another.

The United Nations replaced the League of Nations. The League, created to avert war, saw itself fail as the world sled towards World War II. Seeing the future, the League of Nation's Assembly transfered enough power to its Secretary General to enable the League to continue. The Palace of Peace lay empty for six years. By the Tehran Conference, it was clear that a new body was necessary, without many of the League's weaknesses. It was agreed to create the United Nations. On the 12th of April, 1946, 34 lonely delegates met in Geneva to dissolve the League. At that time it had assets of $22,000,000, including the Palace of Peace and their entire archives, which were transfered to the United Nations. The League of Nations returned reserve funds to its member states, and settled their debts. On April 19th, 1946, the President of the Assembly, Carl J. Hambro of Norway, declared "the twenty-first and last session of the General Assembly of the League of Nations closed." It ceased to be, on the 20th.

First of all, action against a country required a unanimous vote in the League of Nations. As a member of the League of Nations, Japan also had to the right to veto the action.

As a result, the League of Nations was a failure, and Japan remained in Manchuria.

Hope that helped
