Why did the League of Nations Fail in
Abyssinia and Manchuria?
1 The League of Nations task was to ensure that war never
broke out again. After the Treaty of Versailles, many
looked to the League to bring stability to the world.
1.1 The League of Nations was an international organization, created after the
First World War to provide a forum for resolving international disputes.
Though first suggested by President Woodrow Wilson as a plan for peace
in Europe, the United States never became a member.
2 Mussolini got ready to invade Abyssinia. He wanted war and glory.
3 Abyssinia asked the League to help.
4 The League talked to Mussolini - but he used the time to send an army to Africa
5 The League came up with a plan to give part of Abyssinia to Italy
but Mussolini ignored this, and invaded Abyssinia
6 Britain and France secretly agreed to give Abyssinia to Italy
7 Manchuria was invaded by the Japanese army on
September 18th 1931 because of the Mukden Incident.
8 When the Japanese empire invaded
Manchuria, they kicked out the Chinese

Manchuria to stop the dilemma
which took a year.
