World War IIHow did the end of World War I set the stage for World War II?

The conditions imposed on Germany during the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 were used to fuel Hitler’s campaign for Germans to follow his nationalist agenda. The Paris Peace conference was attended by the US, Italy, Britain, and France to decide Germany’s fate. Germany was not included in the discussion of their fate, which caused resentment and later would cause them to follow Hitler. The Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919.
