The main difference is that the Axis were left extremely bitter and unable to recover after World War I - They grudgingly surrendered and the unfair treatment of them in the Treaty of Versailles heightened that. They were solely blamed for the war and forced to pay for everyone's reparations, a vast figure impossible for a defeated and destroyed nation to pay.

In contrast, after World War II the Allies were much more fair with the Axis after the war finished; they lent aid and actually helped the defeated nations recover, a far cry from forcing them to pay for reparations on all sides, as was done after WWI. Another aspect is that after WWII ended, there was a new threat to face - Communism. This caused the remaining nations to ally against the oncoming threat, in order to defend themselves.

A true peace and new democratic governments were established after World War 2 whereas after World War 1 peace never really came because the Treaty of Versailles caused virulent bitterness among the nations toward Germany and Germany toward the nations.

After World War 2 humanitarian aid was offered to Germany and all the European nations. The Germans learned they could never again allow a leader to lead them into another world war and so far they have not in 65 years.

The United Nations was formed and strengthened. This organization has been able to thwart some wars and provide humanitarian aid to nations in need of it.

After World War 1 The League of Nations was disbanded because of its inability to prevent wars and deal with aggressions and conflicts. The issues that caused World War 1 were not resolved until the end of World War 2.
