This quiz will help you to assess your learning of key concepts and knowledge in this unit.

Due to the overlap in knowledge and themes, the following 'Twentieth Century War and Peace' Unit Quiz assesses knowledge from the following enquiries: 1) How far did the assassination cause the First World War? 2) What do the stories of the 'often forgotten armies' reveal about the Western Front? 3) Why did WWI end in November 1918? 4) What kind of peace was made in 1919? 5) Why did the League of Nations fail? 6) When was the turning point during the second world war? 7) How did Jewish people resist during the Holocaust? The Unit Quizzes for all of these enquiries are the same quiz on the Twentieth Century War and Peace.
