History of the Treaty of Versailles, 1919

The following commentary about Treaty of Versailles, 1919 in the Churchill Era is produced by the Churchill College (Cambridge): Peace treaty signed in 1919 which officially ended the First World War, after six months of negotiations at the Paris Peace Conference. Some of the treaty's main points required Germany to accept responsibility for causing the war, to disarm, make substantial territorial concessions and to pay large financial reparations to the Allies. This caused lasting resentment in Germany, right up until the Second World War, and the treaty was widely ignored by the mid-1930's.
