. What was the immediate cause of the Second World War

Best Answer


The initial causes of World War II were as follows:

  • In September 1939, Germany invaded Poland to prevent an anti-German alliance.
  • The Treaty of Versailles displeased the Germans because it weakened their economy and military.
  • In order to obtain new resources, Japan began to expand their empire.
  • The Great Depression resulted in unstable governments and global unrest, which aided the outbreak of World War II.

Final Answer:

The invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany on September 1, 1939, and the simultaneous declarations of war on Germany by Britain and France were the immediate causes, but numerous other earlier events have been claimed as the ultimate cause.
