At the end of World War I the Allieds had established the League of Nations as an international organization designed to ensure global peace, but it had failed miserably due to the fact that it did not possess the military force necessary to enforce any of its sanctions. What was the name of the organization established at the end of the Second World War for the same purpose that has proven to be much more effective than its predecessor?
