One thought on “7.3 Vocab”

  1. Couldn’t the Allied Powers have foreseen the unsatisfied interests of some countries (Italy, Japan) and the desire of Germany to seek revenge after its humiliation, and known that this might lead to another war? Were they just too confident of their own abilities or did they think another war might lead to more profit?
