Why was the United Nations creation more successful than the League of Nations? I know that the League of Nations was created after World War 1, but I'm not sure why it didn't work, where as the UN is still working today.

    Probably the biggest reason that the League of Nations wasn't successful was that the United States didn't join it. In addition, the mess that occurred after WWI that led to the rise of Hitler also contributed to its ineffectiveness.
