The Treaty of Versailles

Slide15

The Big Four

When the heads of the 4 major Allies- France, Great Britain, Italy, and the United States (The Big Four) – met in Paris for peace talks, they were more focused on self-interest than on Wilson’s plan.

Slide16

Wilson’s Plan Crumbles

France was concerned with security. France hoped to weaken Germany to the point that it could never threaten France again by greatly reducing its army.

Slide17

Slide18

Reparations

Reparations are payments demanded of a defeated nation by the victor in a war to offset the cost of the war.Germans resented both the war-guilt clause and reparations, fearing that the payments would cripple their economic recovery.

Slide19

Wilson Compromises

The other countries had lost many lives and property, and they expected compensation. The Allies had borrowed huge sums form American banks to finance the war. They hoped to repay these debts with reparations from Germany. Wilson reluctantly agreed to the harsh treatment of Germany.

Slide20

Dividing the Spoils

Parts of Germany were given to France, Poland, Denmark, and Belgium, with little thought about the desires of the people living there.Britain, France, Italy, and Japan grabbed German colonies in China, the Pacific, and Africa.

Slide21

League of Nations Charter

Wilson hoped that including the League of Nations in the final treaty would make up for his compromises on other issues. He believed that by providing collective security and a framework for peaceful talks, the League would fix many problems the treaty had created.

Slide22

Collective Security

Wilson believed that the League would maintain peace by providing collective security for its members.Collective security is a commitment by many countries to join together to deal with a nation that threatens peace.

Slide23

Wilson required a 2/3 majority vote from the U.S. Senate to ratify the treaty.

Slide24

Opposition

Reservationists, such as Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, were concerned with Article 10 of the League’s charter. This article focused on collective security.It required member nations to work together, and even supply troops, to keep peace.Reservationists feared this would draw the U.S. into wars without approval from Congress.
