What was the cause of World War 1 and world world 2?

The treaty of Versailles which ended world war one was very unfiar to Germany. Germany had to give up a lot of land, pay reperations, and Admit they started world war one (which they didn't). Things like this and the crash of the Germany econimy helped lead to the rise of Adolf Hitler with his speaches of hope on how he will restore greater Germany, the econimy and Germany's honnor.

Why was Germany punished so much after World War 1?

Most of the 'punishment' arose out of the war itself and the defeat. For example, the communications infrastructure largely collapsed. (This includes the phone network and postal service as well as road and rail transport). This made travel and the distribution of goods, including food, very difficult. Even 15 months after the end of the war the rail journey from Munich to Hamburg took about 72 hours! In most cities of any real size the roads in and around the centre were difficult to use as they were littered with rubble from bombing. Obviously, none of this was deliberate 'punishment', but the result of events. Germans living east of the rivers Oder and Neisse were forced to move westwards. There was a huge expulsion by Poland, Russia - and also by Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia. In all, about 11.7 million Germans were expelled and at least one million perished in the process. Conditions were very bad indeed in many cases. The Soviet Union (and to some extent also Britain and France) received reparations. Germany itself was divided into four zones and run by the Allies. Apart from the expulsions, it's hard to say how much of this was 'punishment'. In the longer run, West Germany benefitted greatly from the Cold War - and to a much more limited extent that also applied in East Germany. Both German states became front-line states in the Cold War ... Joncey ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Punishment 1.

Who thinks Adolf Hitler was a great brilliant smart smart man?

Answer 1 Though I am not a Nazi by any means, and am glad that Hitler died and wished that he'd died sooner so that so many innocent people didn't have to die, I do have to admit that he was fairly intelligent. He knew that Germany was crippled after WWI, and he knew that was the perfect time to "aide" Germany. He also predicted what people would do in war. Keep in mind, I'm not saying that I like Hitler. I think he is pond slime that deserved to die for what he did. In fact, even death was too good for him.
