In 1930, a period known as the Liberal Republic commenced with the election of president Enrique Olaya Herrera. Between September 1932 and May 1933, a short war with southern neighbor Peru took place after Peruvians declared the southernmost town along the Amazon River Leticia belonging to Peru. Leticia was founded by Peruvians in the 19th century. President Alfonso López Pumarejo was elected in 1934 and served until 1938 in his first term, to be replaced by Eduardo Santos. López Pumarejo focused on industrialization and economic reform of the country during his first term.

Colombia declared its neutrality under Eduardo Santos when World War II broke out. Santos was opposed to the [[Axis]] powers. After López Pumarejo returned to power in 1942, he wanted to expand on the industrialization and economic reform started in his first term, but WWII impeded that. He was unpopular with the military commanders of Colombia and a coup was prepared to replace him. The coup d'etat failed in 1944 and López Pumarejo ruled until 1945, not serving his full four year presidency.
