Conclusion of WW1 by Gage Dingerson on Prezi
ww2 was just the conclusion of ww1
We always hear about WW2 because it was newer and more accessible by newsreels, radio, etc., but in fact it was only the conclusion of WW1, delayed for a few decades while the antagonists regrouped.
Also WW2 can be considered a conclusion of WW1
One of the first recorded carriages built specifically for a disabled person was designed and created by a paraplegic watchmaker called Stephen Farfler for his own use in 1655. Much later, the Victorian ‘Bath Chair’ became the first vehicle of its kind to be mass-developed with disabled needs in mind, yet this was only really affordable by the wealthy. After the conclusion of WW1, a greater emphasis was placed on mobility for the disabled, particularly considering the influx of soldiers who were left permanently impaired as a result of warfare. At this time, many of these ‘invalid carriages’ still had to be propelled by hand, but before long, many specialist manufacturers such as Dingwall & Sons began to fit and power these carriages with either petrol or electric motors, thus allowing far greater independence for the user.
At the conclusion of WW1, Venizelos secured, as reward, Western Thrace, Eastern Thrace, and a zone around Smyrna, but not Cyprus. On his return from these relatively successful negotiations Venizelos was almost assasinated by former royalist army officers. Venizelos then lost the elections in 1920 which was then followed by a referendum, following the ‘sudden’ death of ‘King’ Alexander, which saw the return of King Constantine I from exile. Venizelos prudently left the countryAs for Britain retaining the empire, that simply wasn't going to happen. The empire was essentially done by the end of WW1 and talks of letting India gain independence began in the 20's. Britain's status as a "superpower" (if they ever even really held such a title) was over at the conclusion of WW1 and had been in decline for decades before that.Inaction appeared to be the cue to Japan in East Asia to next launch their own attack against China in 1937, followed by Adolf launching his Anschluss with Austria and the occupation of what is now Czech Republic but was then Czechoslovakia in 1938. It had been 20 years since the conclusion of WW1 and apparently no nations were eager this time as they had been in 1914 to rush into another major war, except for Japan which had had a pretty good time against Russia during WW1, and of course except for Germany who wanted revenge.The Somme , Verdun , Alsace , Bastogne, etc; It seems to me that the elemental nature that brought about the conclusion of WW1 resulted in us having to fight for the same real estate twice.
