The League of Nations:

The International group was formed post the end of World War I in \(1918\). It was mainly established to iron out the difference between the warring countries with the tool of diplomacy.

The League of Nations as an institution had mixed success in its tenure, which vanished during World War II in \(1945\).
\(14\) Points: The Birth of the league was attributed to the \(14\) points speech of the then President of the US, “Woodrow Wilson” in \(1918\).
The League was the brainchild of Wilson, who envisioned an organisation that is capable of resolving conflicts amicably.

The ultimate aim of establishing the league was to avert another global war that would sound the death knell to human beings. But the organisation miserably failed to uphold its objective.
The Fall of the League

1. The Second World War broke out in \(1945\), between the Allied forces (UK, US, Russia, France) and the Axis Forces (Germany, Italy, Japan).

2. Before the ignition of the war, most of the League countries like Norway, Belgium, France etc., fell under the wrath of Hitler in \(1940\).v

3. Thus, the league members began to dismantle the office of the league in their countries, which failed to protect the countries from the Axis forces.
