The first ten years of the League of Nations 1919-1929
Those first ten years of the League were very much a 'Golden era', an international answer to the aftermath and devastation of Europe as a result of World War I. So what went wrong? Why did the League fail so miserably ten years later?

Do I have a memory left........
A. Because it never enforced laws.
B. Because during the world wide depression, an individual came to power in Germany (Hitler), broke most of the League of Nations rules, and was never really challanged.
C. Becuase Neville Chamberlain was the biggest wuss of all time.Freed by Grace

that would be my foremost pickWe believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, light from light,true God from true God....
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father,
who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

1. No US.
2. Neville Chamberlain
3. Disengenuous Soviet involvement.
One of the big powers was ignoring the league, another was actively opposing it, and another pretended to work within it but actually was bent on conquest as well. So what hope was there. And Neville Chamberlain seriously miscalculated on Hitler.Meh.

On the other hand, one might conclude that it wasn't so much that the League that failed, it's that there wasn't the political will of the countries with power to carry out it's mandates when aggresive invaders (e.g. Italy, Japan) refused to be checked by rhetoric alone. That would be a case of claiming that the surgery was a success, even though the patient died.Science cannot investigate supernatural causation for the same reason that you cannot score 5 runs on a single baseball play.
