Emergence and Development of Europe
Several new states emerged in Europe, although small, like Czechoslovakia before the period of 1939. Some development that led to new states includes the dissolution of colonizing countries like Germany and Russia. It led to new and small states in the Middle East and Europe (Szanyi, 2019). When these countries dissolved, they were in debt to each other. For instance, Germany had 132 billion marks to compensate for force destructions, and the French had to force their army to work for them as a form of payment. These caused more conflicts among European nations.
