Question: To what extent was the failure of mandates the main reason that made the League of Nations weak? EYA.
Sir, would the other 2 factors be:
1) Absence of the USA resulted in weakened authority/credibility of the LON
2) Member countries put their own interests first (Italy and Corfu Islands, Ruhr invasion by France, Britain's reluctance to get involved)
Can the LON's reliance on usage of the world's public opinion and the redundancy of the use of sanctions and force be another factor?
And do the mandates refer to former German and Turkish colonies? How were they failures and how did it lead to the LON appearing weak?
