Disarnment in the 1920s:the leuage failed in bringing disarment, in wahsington 192, britain, france, usa and japan agreed to limit the size of their army and thats how far they got. in 1923 theleauges first attempt at disarment was rejected by britain becuase it would tie it to defending countries. in 1926 plans were finally made for disarnment conference but it took five years to draft a convention for the conference to focus on and in 1933 this was rejected by germans This failure damaged leagues reputation in Germany, Germnay had disarmed, it was forced to, but no other countries did to that extent so they werent prepared to be the first to disarm.
the locarno:in october 1925, France, britain, germnay, italy, belgiam, poland, czechslovaks, met in locarno and made some important agreements:Germany finally accepted the borders with france and belgiam.
