There was rise of militarism in Europe.

1)       After the First World War, democratic governments were installed in many countries.
2)       However, the people who had no experience about democracy felt it take a crisis.
3)       The nations like Italy, Germany, Poland, and Austria were weak with various political parties, frequent defections, corruption, changing ministries, declining economy and many other burning issues.
4)       The people were fed up with democratic experiment and started feeling that dictatorship was better than democratic rules.
5)       Despots (dictator) like Hitler and Mussolini could provide option for solution of contemporary (current) issues through military means.
This give rise to militarism in Europe.
