OK, "purpose" may be a bit strong. But while the LoN had similar goals, it didn't achieve them. Where the EU (or it's precursor, rather) stood out was identifying that there was more to preventing war than just joining an organisation; the focus on an economic interdependence was the difference, hence the "not merely unthinkable but materially impossible" quote from Schuman. Because lets face it, by 1945, the unthinkable had already happened.
