League Of Nations Treaty Of Versailles
832 words4. The hopes and dreams of the League of Nation were quite realistic, although they simply rushed into them to fast. First of all, they tried to maintain the Treaty of Versailles.

Military Action Iraq World
391 wordsThe Iraq Crisis The recent military action against Iraq by the USA and Britain has plunged the world closer to large-scale war than we have been since 1945.
