Treaty of Versailles

The treaty was signed on June 28th 1919 after months of argument and negotiation amongst the so-called "Big Three" (were David Lloyd George of Britain, Clemenceau of France and Woodrow Wilson of America) as to what the treaty should contain.1) no more secret treaties 2) countries must seek to reduce their weapons and their armed forces 3) national self-determination should allow people of the same nationality to govern themselves and one nationality should not have the power to govern another 4) all countries should belong to the League of Nations.

Lasting Impact

The treaty was succesfull and:-Western Germany was demilitarised. -Germany was forbidden to unite with Austria.

The Treaty seemed to satisfy the "Big Three" because in their eyes it was a just peace as it kept Germany weak yet strong enough to stop the spread of communism; kept the French border with Germany safe from another German attack and created the organisation, the League of Nations, that would end warfare all over the world.
