In 2022, a Third World War is on the horizon. This war will be the most violent and destructive in history. It will involve more countries than ever before. It will cost more lives than any other war in history.
The Origins of the War
A single event triggers deadly fighting on a global scale. It will shape the destinies of leaders as recognizable as Churchill, De Gaulle, MacArthur, Stalin, and Patton. It will mark the end of colonialism and the birth of a new world order.
It will also mark the first time that Indian soldiers fought in a world war. The Army of India was created in the 19th century by taking the sepoy regiments, native cavalry, irregular horse and Indian sapper and miner companies raised by the three British presidencies and merging them into one force. Many Indian soldiers, especially those from the Sikh sect, joined the British forces to prevent a resurgence of Mughal rule in India.
The end of WWII was marked by the establishment of independent states including Indonesia (today Indonesia), Kampuchea (today Cambodia) and Laos. Mizoram also became a separate state after an uprising against the British authorities. India-China border skirmishes were also common during this period.
The Origins of the Treaty of Versailles
The Paris Peace Conference of 1919 would be a difficult meeting as the nations negotiated how to end the war. France wanted Germany to pay a high price for its role in the war and demanded substantial reparations, while other allies countries sought to strike a balance between retaliation and sustainable peace.
Eventually, the conference settled on a plan to form a League of Nations that would serve as an international forum and collective security arrangement. However, the treaty was harshly criticized by many Germans who felt it punished their nation for its war guilt and that it gave too much power to the Allied powers. This discontent fueled the growth of radical right-wing parties, including Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Party.
The new democratically elected government in Germany found itself struggling to meet the demands of the Versailles Treaty, which it viewed as a dictatorial peace. The war guilt clause, massive reparation payments, and limitations placed on the German military were all seen as a violation of Wilson’s Fourteen Points.
The Origins of the Treaty of San Francisco
In September 1951, 48 nations met in San Francisco to draft a post-World War II settlement with Japan. Its terms reflected the victors’ desire to assert their own influence in Asia, a region that was seen as a crucial front in the fight against Soviet and Chinese Communism. The result was a system of international relations known as the San Francisco system.
The treaty created one of the most tragic legacies of the war: it left Japan a divided nation, as Okinawa was detached from the rest of the country and turned into a U.S. military base. The pact also gave Washington the power to intervene in the future if it believed that a nationalist government was threatening to undermine its interests.
The pact was not without controversy, but it ultimately served its purpose of setting the stage for the Cold War. It was a milestone in world history because it marked the first time that a major power negotiated its way out of a major war with the help of other world powers.
The Origins of the Treaty of Non-Aggression
The term ‘non-aggression’ refers to the principle that states should not use force against one another. This principle applies even during war, although international law generally allows more scope for the use of force than in peace time.
Nonetheless, it is still a principle that states should respect, and one that has helped to maintain world peace throughout the twentieth century. This is perhaps most notable in the case of the Nazi-Soviet Pact (also known as the German-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact, the Hitler-Stalin Pact or the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact), which was signed only a few days before the beginning of World War II and which divided eastern Europe into Germany’s and Soviet spheres of influence.
This pact was one of the most shocking and dramatic events of the war. It allowed Hitler to launch a rapid attack on Poland and the Baltic states, while shielding the Soviet Union from a two-front war. It was one of the first times that a non-aggression pact had been used as a method for neutralising a potential military threat and freeing up resources to fight a more serious enemy.
