  • The Manchurian Crisis
    • Japanese aggression led to the Manchurian Crisis
      • In Sept 1931 it used the excuse of disturbance to Mukden + send its troops to overrun the rest of Manchuria
        • They pretended to give Manchuria independence- put a weak leader called Puyi-so they could control him
          • The LON sent Lord Lytton to assess the situation, he  said the Japanese has been wrong, but the League didn’t do anything else- it failed to stop Japan + end the crisis
            • This was the 1st major challenge for the LON + the whole world saw it fail to confront Japanese aggression
