A League is born...
The League of Nations was an international
organization established on January 25, 1919 by
part I of the Treaty of Versailles, founded with
the intentions of reducing armaments, settling
disputes between countries and maintaining
living conditions. This was largely motivated
by the bloodshed during World War I.

In the autumn of each year, each state would
send up to three delegates to the Geneva
assembly to discuss world problems. Each
country had one vote, and a unanimous vote
was needed to decide action. As unanimity
was never reached, resolutions were passed
onto the council.

The great powers (Britain, France, Italy and Japan)
of 1920 sat permanently on the council, with
smaller nations who observed. They met three or
four times a year, and at times of crisis. By a
unanimous vote they could levy three sanctions
against a nation who broke peace:
Moral sanction ­ A polite warning
Economic sanction ­ The League stopped trading with the
offender
Military sanction ­ As a last resort the League would
impose its will by force.
