Germany withdraws from the League of Nations
Germany Defies All World powers; Quits League, Arms Talk; Leaders Decide to Launch Parlay Anyway. Developed in 1919 at the Paris peace conference, US President Woodrow Wilson hoped the League would ensure that the First World War truly was “the war to end all wars”. Hitler ordered the German delegates to leave the Disarmament Conference in Geneva, and he withdrew from the League of Nations. He gave as his excuse the fact that Germany was already disarmed, while other countries were refusing to disarm.
