Interwar period. The interwar period was a time in history from 1918 to 1939, between the two world wars, World War I and World War II . The period began with many changes internationally. The League of Nations was created, which was made to bring peace to the world, but did not prevent problems with Nazi Germany, which soon left the League.

I don't understand why there's links to a bunch of history articles? -b01:29, 2 January 2007 (UTC) Changed the opening to refer to the period as between wars, being WWI and WWII. Since WWI started in Europe and WWII started in several places, but also in Europe, the context is that between 2 wars can only refer to the European theatre and thus the years 1918 to 1939. I removed wording as it being known as the period between the wars as the title is obvious, which doen not go for the word interbellumPrudentia (talk) —Preceding undatedcomment added 05:20, 3 October 2011 (UTC).
"The idea behind the creation of the League was a good idea because its primary aims still remain important in today’s society however it was badly administered." I'm not promotign debate on whether or not the ideas behind the League of Nations were good or not, but rather pointing out that such editorializations do not belong on Wikipedia. Could be rephrased to: "Though the League of Nations was continually undermined and ultimately dissolved, many of the original goals of the League are still pursued by the United Nations, the spiritual successor of the League of Nations." Not only does it remove the editorializing, it also provides needed reference to the comparison between the League and the UN. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 05:10, 21 December 2007 (UTC)Mic check —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 16:10, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
Can someone revert this article to it's previous version, as it shows clear signs of vandalism. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 16:42, 15 January 2007 (UTC).
just a thought, but shouldn't that be interbella? (generally, words ending in -um have a plural ending in -aand interbellum means between the wars, which is plural.) is there an established grammatical consensus that it is indeed interbellum? Maybe Bellum is being used in a more abstract, all inclusive fashion to mean warfare in general, so by being between two world wars, the Interbellum period is between periods of war, hence Inter-Bellum. D Boland (talk) 01:29, 9 March 2008 (UTC) Is it anything to do with the case of "bellum"?Also - is it just american english - i'm sure i've seen it referred to as interbellum in (english) history books18.104.22.168 (talk) 13:10, 28 May 2008 (UTC) ~~Interbellum is Latin, so it can be used in English regardless of dialect. In fact, I'm removing that reference, because it is unverified that it is exclusively used in "American English". As a speaker of British English I can tell you that it is certainly used in Commonwealth nations. —Preceding unsig...

The Spanish Civil War was one of the most important events in the period and it isn't even mentioned in the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 06:52, 19 February 2010 (UTC) 1. 1.1. Good Point. this war has been added, Rjensen (talk) 07:34, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
I don't think it's important to include a distinction of "interwar period" from the infrequently used "intrawar" in this article. In any case, surely the lead is not where to put it. Per the nutshell statement at WP:LEAD, "The lead should define the topic and summarize the body of the article with appropriate weight." Since the brief mention of "intrawar" is never addressed again, I'm going to remove it, on second thought. Here is the last version of the text I am removing: In contrast to the interwar period, historians refer to the time of the First World War (1914–1918) and the Second World War (1939-1945) as "intrawar" periods. -Phoenixrod (talk) 05:43, 2 October 2010 (UTC) 1. This is standard disambiguation (but for not having its own topic): "intrawar" is most commonly a typo. I am also of opinion that all dictionary words should link to topics (if not to Wiktionary). But this is a continuation of a faraway conflict, as a third party says. I could stub "intrawa...
I would add a link about Heimosodat to Finland section because it was pretty important part of Finnish Interwar period. --Fenn-O-maniC (talk) 15:06, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
This list seems like OR to me. Any period between wars could be so called, but I think that to avoid WP:INDISCRIMINATE and OR this list should only contain common usage as verified in reliable sources of the term "interbellum" or "inter-war period" to describe periods between wars. -- PBS (talk) 11:13, 3 October 2011 (UTC) 1. 1.1. This article should be renamed, because while it's true that "inter-war period" may refer to any period between two wars, the Interwar is the one between 1918 and 1939. walk victor falktalk14:20, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
For god sake, "interwar period" is just a convenient expression to denote the 20-year period between the two WWs. It's ridiculous to attempt to summarize, as this overlinked, high-school entry level article attempt to do, some political events that have occurred during those twenty years because then even a summary of political events would be at least 10 times the length of this article. And then, why limit oneself to political eventsas it is done here? The expression "Interwar period" is used just as much, if not more so, in non-political contexts ("French cinema in the interwar period", "The decorative arts during the interwar period", etc.). IMO, a broad definition of the expression would have been sufficient (avoiding pedantic references to the "Treaty of Versailles" and the "Invasion of Poland" etc. because "end of World War I" and "beginning of World War II would have been quite sufficient)..--Lubiesque (talk) 16:26, 14 December 2014 (UTC) 1.

Interwar Britain. In the United Kingdom, the interwar period (1918–1939) was a period of relative stability after the division of Ireland, though of economic stagnation. In politics the Liberal Party collapsed and the Labour Party became the main challenger to the dominant Conservative Party throughout the period.
In the Interwar period in Yugoslavia (1918–41), there were several veteran associations of Serbian guerrillas (known as " Chetniks ") that had fought in Ottoman Macedonia (1903–12), Balkan Wars (1912–13) and World War I (1914–18). Leading Chetniks were split between the Democratic Party (DS) and Radical Party (RS), and also between ties ...
