Treaty of Versailles
treaty that dealt with Germany. French foreign minister Clemenceau wanted to take a harsh stance with the Germans because of the French feeling of revengism. The British desired to be more lenient with Germany and keep them stable as a buffer state to communist Russia. Wilson focused primarily on the implementation of his 14 points. In the end Germany would have no say in their negotiations to only walk out and be forced to sign the terms later. The terms included: Germany army to be kept to 100,000, the Rhineland would be demilitarized, the French would regain Alsace and Lorraine, the Germans had no claim to Czechoslovakia or Poland, they would lose half of their iron and half of their industry, no air force, 24 ship navy, no manufacturing or trade of offensive weapons, no submarines, no unification with Austria. West Prussia, posen, and Silesia were given to Poland as the corridor to the sea. Danzig is made a free city.
