Impossible Peace: 1933-1936: Everyone Trusts Him
1933-1936: Everyone Trusts Him
Season 1  |  Episode 6  |  The History Channel  |  June 30, 2020

In the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics repression, gulags, collectivisation and Five Year Plans are beginning to tally the terrible human toll that will always be associated with Stalin's rule. Elsewhere, liberal democracy seems imperilled by shaky coalitions, continuing depression and debt. Accelerating armaments programs both in Europe and in Asia increasingly persuade people that they are no longer living in a post-war world. They are living in a pre-war world. Mussolini marches into Ethiopia - then called Abyssinia - and, as it had been by Japan's invasion of China, the fatal weakness of the League of Nations is exposed.
