Quote of the Day: "The only thing we have to fear is, fear itself." - Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Learning Targets for WWII:

CH. 24:  The peace settlements at the end of World War I combined with severe economic problems to produce widespread discontent across Europe. Democratic rule in many states gave way to fascism, authoritarianism, and the totalitarianism of Stalin and Hitler.  
• The peace settlement at the end of World War I left many nations unhappy and border disputes simmering throughout Europe. The League of Nations proved a weak institution.
• Economic problems plagued France, Great Britain, and the German Weimar Republic. When Germany declared that it could not continue to pay reparations, France occupied one German region as a source of reparations.  In the US prosperity ended with the economic collapse of 1929 and the Great Depression.
• The new American president, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, pursued a policy of active government intervention in the economy that came to be known as the New Deal
• European democracies crumbled and were replaced by socialism, fascism, and communism.
