In the aftermath of World War II, Europe showed a notable overall decline in both its economic production and its overall primacy in the international community. While some historians have argued that the Second World War is what had served as the impetus for the decline of Europe, when tracing the evolution of Europe throughout the course of the twentieth century, it becomes evident that Europe suffered a gradual decline throughout this time period. As such, when World War II concluded, Europe collapsed as a result of more than six decades of slow erosion of the empire.In an effort to better understand the overall decline of Europe during the twentieth century, this investigation considers the specific events that shaped the development of Europe between the years of 1914 and 1965. Through a careful consideration of what has been written about Europe's development between these years it will be possible to demonstrate that Europe faced a steady decline as a result of international events that were beyond the control of the empire. These events culminated in the physical destruction of Europe during World War II. When considered together, the history of Europe between 1914 and 1965 will show that Europe faced an unavoidable pathway to erosion which eventually led to the complete destruction of the empire.

As such, Europe suffered its final blow because of its inability to effectively take control in the years after the Second World War. Conclusion Clearly, the data in this investigation demonstrates that Europe suffered a slow decline throughout the early and mid-twentieth century. Unfortunately, the circumstances of history were not ones that favored European nations. [...]
