    Something wrong with number one. I believe the treaty was not signed before 1919? But WW2 defenately didn’t start on the said date

      You’re right, the treaty wasn’t signed until June 28th 1919. But the start of World War 2 was when Hitler invaded Poland on September 1st 1939. So if they had used the correct date (June 28th 1919) then its true that it started 20 years and 65 days later. They just used the wrong date for the treaty being signed for some reason.

    2. jacob says:

      I’ve figured it out! Armistice was agreed on November 11 1918 so that is the date that they have gotten the treaty being signed mixed up with!

    3. Erik Brean says:

      The treaty was actually signed on June 28th 1919 and world war 2 started on September 1st when Germany invaded Poland.
