The League of Nations, organized to prevent warfare, was beyond unsuccessful; it was a catastrophic failure. Japan invaded Manchuria in 1933 and it issued condemnations. That same year Germany withdrew from the League. Italy invaded Ethiopia in 1935, and withdrew in 1937. In 1939, the League expelled the Soviet Union.  Strangely, it continued to exist throughout WWII and finally dissolved in 1946 after the creation of the United Nations.
