  • One American's Story


    The rise of rulers with total power in Europe and Asia led to World War ll.

    Dictators of the 1930s and 1940s changed the course of history, making world leaders especially watchful for the actions of dictators today.

    Martha Gellhorn arrived in Madrid in 1937 to cover the brutal civil war that had broken out in Spain the year before. Hired as a special correspondent for Colliers Weekly, she had come with very little money and no special protec-tion. On assignment there, she met the writer Ernest Hemingway, whom she later married. To Gellhorn, a young American writer, the Spanish Civil War was a deadly strug-gle between tyranny and democracy. For the people of Madrid, it was also a daily struggle for survival.

    A PERSONAL VOICE MARTHA GELLHORN You would be walking down a street, hearing only the city noises of streetcars and automobiles and people calling to one another, and suddenly, crushing it all out, would be the huge stony deep booming of a falling shell, at the corner. There was no place to run, because how did you know that the next shell would not be behind you, or ahead, or to the left or right?

    The Face of War

    Less than two decades after the end of World War Ithe war to end all warsfighting erupted again in Europe and in Asia. As Americans read about dis-tant battles, they hoped the conflicts would remain on the other side of the world.

    Nationalism Grips Europe and AsiaThe seeds of new conflicts had been sown in World War I. For many nations, peace had brought not prosperity but revolution fueled by economic depression and struggle. The postwar years also brought the rise of powerful dictators driven by the belief in nationalismloyalty to ones country above all elseand dreams of territorial expansion.

    Martha Gellhorn, one of the first women war correspondents, began her career during the Spanish Civil War.

  • Germany was expected to pay off huge debts while dealing with widespread poverty. By 1923, an inflating economy made a five-million German mark worth less than a penny. Here children build blocks with stacks of useless German marks.

    Identifying Problems A Why did the

    new democracies set up after World War I fail?

    FAILURES OF THE WORLD WAR I PEACE SETTLEMENT Instead of securing a just and secure peace, the Treaty of Versailles caused anger and resentment. Germans saw nothing fair in a treaty that blamed them for starting the war. Nor did they find security in a settlement that stripped them of their overseas colonies and border territories. These problems overwhelmed the Weimar Republic, the democratic government set up in Germany after World War I. Similarly, the Soviets resented the carving up of parts of Russia. (See map, Chapter 11, p. 400.) The peace settlement had not fulfilled President Wilsons hope of a world safe for democracy. New democratic governments that emerged in Europe after the war floundered. Without a democratic tradition, people turned to authoritar-ian leaders to solve their economic and social problems. The new democracies collapsed, and dictators were able to seize power. Some had great ambitions. A

    JOSEPH STALIN TRANSFORMS THE SOVIET UNION In Russia, hopes for democracy gave way to civil war, resulting in the establishment of a communist state, officially called the Soviet Union, in 1922. After V. I. Lenin died in 1924, Joseph Stalin, whose last name means man of steel, took control of the coun-try. Stalin focused on creating a model communist state. In so doing, he made both agricultural and industrial growth the prime economic goals of the Soviet Union. Stalin abolished all privately owned farms and replaced them with collec-tiveslarge government
