The contents of this section of our website are provided as a free service to the public. Two separate history titles are included — one covers the History of the League of Nations, the precursor to the United Nations. Conceived by the victors of the First World War to avoid a repeat of another devastating war, the League had many successes but unfortunately was not able to avoid the Second World War. The other title is a sample of our On This Day in Australia series of important historical happenings on a daily basis. We are featuring in this case the various major Australian events that occurred in the month of November. This product will continue to be added to and updated on an ongoing basis.
