Chris Kokkinis English 345 October 10, 2006 President Wilson’s Fourteen Points After the November eleventh armistice of the Great War, the world’s attention shifted to post-war matters. With the German empire exhausted and disheartened by the anticlimactic conclusion to the war, the Allied powers held the upper hand in matters of negotiating. The British and the French, under Lloyd George and Georges Clemenceau, respectively, sought out a solution that would severely cripple the German Empire and prevent them from possibly recovering on a military level ever again. In doing so, however, Germany would also go into an economic shambles and a state of social chaos. At the Conference at Versailles in France, President Woodrow Wilson represented the United States in the negotiating of a treaty. Contrary to the opinions of George and Clemenceau, Wilson did not seek to ruin Germany. Instead, Wilson suggested, in his Fourteen Points, a more peaceful solution, favoring the formation of a League of Nations.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
