    The Treaty of Versailles may have been written in an effort to stop World War I and bring peace between the opposing countries, but it 's outcome was much more harmful. Most facts show and support that the Treaty of Versailles failed in many ways, which therefore lead to World War I. Some facts that help me prove my point include, the treaty highly offended Germany causing them to want revenge, the treaty diminished Germany 's economy, and the treaty affected Germany 's military. All of these points show how the Treaty was responsible for World War II, and how it failed in many different ways. Also, these atrocities made Germany very vulnerable, and lead to the rise in power of Adolf Hitler.…

    Clemenceau had enough of seeing damage being done to the land, industry, people, and the pride of France. At the end of the war many viewed Germany as a threat to national security; thus, they wanted Germany to be given a huge burden that they could not overcome easily. Clemenceau was a realist and was aware that not all of what he had wished for was going to be passed; nevertheless, he still viewed the treaty as ‘disappointing.’ The French President had even wanted Germany broken up into tiny states. Meanwhile, Lloyd George also wanted to punish Germany (as a mild treaty would not have been acceptable to the public), but not too harshly. He had wanted Germany to lose its navy and its colonies - the powerful navy threatened the British Empire.…

    This treaty had given Germany a hefty guilt of starting, raging, and continuing World War I. This, as one can imagine, was cumbersome and unfair to Germany, even after Wilson himself did not blame any specific country for the destruction from this war. Germany was not even invited to the Peace Conference, so this German delegation expresses distress: “Such terms are not found on any principles of justice. Quite arbitrarily, here the idea of an imprescribable historical right, there the idea of ethnographical possession, there the standpoint of economic interest shall prevail, in every case the decision being unfavorable to Germany.”. This shows the extent of how Germany is isolated from the rest of Europe under the…

    Germany, although may have started the war was left with a disadvantage when the treaty was being drafted. The treaty can be seen as flawed when it came down to its equality when Germany was not included in the conference, leaving them out of the loop and without the ability to negotiation the terms of the treaty. Due to this manner of how they nations reacted to the treaty when created, left no room for the central power to negotiate. However, the major allied powers all held different opinions on how they would make Germany pay. Great Britain was the median of the three where they thought that Germany does deserve the harsh punishment but should not have to shoulder all the blame, but France thought differently.…
