World War II would have never happened if it was not for this: 4 June 1920 of a treaty that destroyed Hungary and blamed that country for starting World War I, when it was Austria and Serbia and that treaty was named the Treaty of Trianon? Leaving Hungary defenseless open to Invasions and the Atrocities that followed. "The Treaty of Trianon was the peace agreement signed in 1920, at the end of World War I, between the Allies of World War I and the Kingdom of Hungary (one of the successor states to Austria-Hungary). The treaty regulated the status of an independent Hungarian state and defined its borders. The treaty left Hungary as a landlocked state covering 93,073 square kilometres (35,936 sq mi), only 28% of the 325,411 square kilometres (125,642 sq mi) that had constituted the pre-war Kingdom of Hungary (the Hungarian half of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy). Its population was 7.6 million, only 36% of the pre-war kingdom's population of 20.9 million. The areas that were allocated to neighbouring countries in total (and each of them separately) possessed a majority of non-Hungarian population, but 31% of Hungarians, 3.3 million was left outside of post-Trianon Hungary. Five of the pre-war kingdom's ten largest cities were drawn into other countries, and post-Trianon Hungary was left without direct access to the sea. The treaty limited Hungary's army to 35,000 officers and men, while the Austro-Hungarian Navy ceased to exist." http://www.hunsor.se/dosszie/Cseres20.pdf http://www.hhrf.org/hhrf/en/vojvodinareport-m... http://www.hunsor.se/dosszie/whitebook1944.pd... http://tdyweb.wbteam.com/Trianon.htm
