The Treaty of Versailles helped to cause WWll because military restrictions made Germans feel weak and isolated. In document B1 it says that Alsace Lorraine and the Polish Corridor took land away from Germany. Therefore most of the land had coal which reduced their coal production by 40%. In document B2 Adolf Hitler claims that he will be able to take back his land by war. It’s going to be difficult for Hitler to take back his land because Alsace Lorraine made it possible to which Germany can’t place troops on the West side of its land.
One of the reasons why the world suffered another war is because Germany violated the Treaty of Versailles. They violated the treaty so their country would be great and they would get back to their original status before WWI. Hitler promised the German people that he will bring Germany out of the crash and make Germany more powerful than before. Adolf Hitler shares some of his ideas the German people, ”Oppressed territories are led back to the bosom of a common Reich, not by flaming protest, but by a mighty sword”(Document 1). Hitler is trying to convince the German people that they should start taking over land, not peacefully but by force.
The tense battle between the triple entente and the triple alliance may have been blamed on Germany alone but really there are quite a few more details that came into play when starting this terrible fight. One little argument between two countries turned into a full out world war that ended with 38 million casualties The underlying causes of WWI include the forming of alliances across Europe, the quick ride in military and supplies, each country 's intense love for their nation, and the fast imperialization that was spreading across Europe. The forming of alliances built up tensions between all of Europe which helped cause WWI. In Document A, the triple entente is shown to be surrounding the triple alliance which made everyone believe that a war would spark from the high tensions.
Aaron Lord Year 10 SOSE Treaty Of Versailles How harsh were the terms of the Treaty of Versailles on Germany? The Treaty of Versailles was signed on the 28 June 1919 and was the most significant peace treaty that led to the return of peace in Europe containing fifteen parts and 440 articles. Although the armistice was made with Germany to end the fighting on 11 November 1918, it took six months of negotiations to create this peace treaty.
Article 232 and 233 states that Germany had to pay for all the damage they caused in WWI and the amount was finalized by the other countries. Germany did not want to pay any of the reparations because they did not agree that they should take full responsibility for the war. Angry Germans helped Hitler into power more than before because he stopped all the payments. These articles made the German people angry and yet again look to Hitler for leadership, by looking to him, he made the decision to stop all the payment being made. By ending payments, Germany made what the Treaty of Versailles says was broken and therefore starts to get the countries who are supposed to get money from Germany angry, so now the Treaty of Versailles made Germany angry.
The Treaty of Versailles was much more than a simple document to end World War I. In some ways, the treaty was a catalyst for future conflict and a source of anger for those negatively impacted by the terms of the treaty, despite not necessarily having impact on the war itself. The citizens of Germany were unfairly punished by the requirements of Article 231 in that the economic impact to the country resulted in runaway inflation. Citizens who were retired or lived on a fixed income for any other reason, to include those who had savings and planned to survive on that money, lost everything they had financially. The treaty required Germany to give up lands that provided resources that literally fueled the German economy.
World War I was an earthquake felt throughout the globe; its tremors reached every country, either directly or indirectly. However, “the war to end all wars” ended in an armistice that affected one specific country greater than any other: Germany. The Treaty of Versailles, signed on June 28, 1919, forced the Germans to not only claim the utter guilt of the war, but to pay reparations to pay for the damages that “they” caused. This treaty left a permanent flaw in Germany’s national identity, which ultimately led to the second world war. This
WWI ended with Germany signing the Treaty of Versailles. Germany was forced to sign this treaty, because if they did not sign the treaty, then they would be attacked. There was essentially no compromising. The terms of the Treaty of Versailles focused on Germany itself, and not the other countries that were fighting on Germany's side. Germany got the most punishment because they were the third man in this war.
To end World War I Germany was forced to sign the Treaty of Versailles. This treaty was viewed by the country as one-sided. It caused them humiliation. Article 231 of the Treaty of Versailles told Germany that it had to pay for reparations for the war. A section in the Article stating “‘The Allied and Associated Governments affirm and Germany accepts the responsibility of Germany and her allies
World War 1 was world’s first global war started in July 28, 1914 and lasted till November 11, 1918. “The Great War” was originated in Europe; involved 6 countries, Germany, Austria-Hungary, Serbia, France, Russia, and Great Britain. It started with an assassination and involved more countries. Many European countries made an agreement with each other and fought for four years. The war was characterised by stagnant trench warfare and massive loss of life in failed attacks.
The treaty required them to relinquish their military power, substantial portions of their land, their say in international affairs and their respect. The principal factor that gave rise to feelings of humiliation and anger was "the war guilt clause" that attributed all blame to Germany for starting the war, the anger of
The First World War caused millions of deaths and destruction all over Europe and around the world. When the war ended, the victors gathered to mend the results of war through a peace treaty that blamed the defeated− the Treaty of Versailles. The treaty was signed in 1919 and greatly affected the world both directly and indirectly. However, while it did attempt to fix the damage done by WW1, it added further burdens and injury to an already weak Germany that eventually led to the Second World War from their feelings of revenge and rage. This is because the Treaty of Versailles was an imperfect agreement that punished Germany too much and negatively affected both Germany and Europe in physical, political, and financial ways.
The Treaty of Versailles had a large significance on Germany and its future, but 1919-1939 will be focused on - highlighting its negative effects on Germany’s military and population, the economic Depression, how it gave Hitler inspiration and his rise to power, and other topics, such as how history was forever changed. Millions of people lost their lives. It all traces back to one fateful moment. The close of the war - The Great War.
In 1919 at the close of the Great War, the combined world powers convened at Versailles, on the outskirts of Paris, to define the conditions of the Armistice that ended the war. The product of their meeting was the Treaty of Versailles which placed restrictions on the German military, forced Germany to pay reparations to the Allies and placed full responsibility of the war on Germany. These conditions of the treaty created a loss of sovereignty of Germany and placed hardships on the German population. The combined result was a decline of social and economical capital in German society.
The Treaty of the Versailles (an international body intended to promote peace and prevent war) ended the WWI in 1919(Judd 1972:sp). Germany and its allies were defeated in the WWI. The treaty held Germany responsible pay for the damages caused in the war (Coltheart 2011: sp). During that time, the world was suffering from the Great Depression.
