II World War will break out between Britain and Germany, USA and Japan.
True prediction of II World War and alliances and opponents except Russia. The article written by Toynbee is actually one based solely on his own opinions, using historical evidence and current events to point out the coming paths of War that may occur in either Europe, between the British and the Germans, or the East, between Japan and the United States. Written in 1934, Toynbee’s article would become somewhat prophetic with the oncoming World War, which would break out by 1939.
