What were the similarities between WWI and WWII?
1 Answer | Add Yours
There are at least three major similarities.
First, both wars were caused by the efforts of some countries to change the international order and the efforts of other countries to prevent that. For example, Germany wanted more power for itself before both wars and other countries wanted to keep it from having power.
Second, both wars were "total wars" that were won by the side that could manufacture the most weapons.
Finally, both were wars that ended with victories for the countries that had dominated the world order before the war. In other words, the insurgent countries lost both wars.
