The broadly accepted view holds it is the lack of political will to act through the then existing good offices of the League of Nations that contributed to the creation of sufficient military capacity within Germany to begin World War 2 (WW2). This paper will argue that the existence of political will to act through the League to stop Hitler would not have significantly hamstrung his endeavors due to the poorly crafted and, thus, contradictory legislative basis for the collective security of the League. This publication will contend that had the legislatively provided basis of collective security been invoked by the League, Germany would have likely benefited from its outcomes, and which would not have prevented it from achieving its original objective – the reunification of the German minorities in Greater Germany.
