Disagreement continued, with the Republicans opposing the Treaty and the Free Staters supporting it. By June the situation had escalated into civil war. The Irish Free State was officially established in December, with a government formed under William T Cosgrove. However, some reconciliation appeared to have been made at least within the Irish Parliament as the first general election proved victorious for the pro-treaty party.
On the world stage the post-War Versailles Treaty was feeling the strain after Russia and Germany made a secret pact in Rapallo, re-establishing full diplomatic relations and promising cooperation towards economic development and enabling Germany to manufacture in Russia the weapons banned by the Versailles Treaty.

Lloyd George found himself and his coalition parliament ousted by the Tories, and Benito Mussolini became Italy's dictator after marching on Rome.
