Was the Treaty of Versailles responsible for WWII? The Treaty of Versailles was a post WWI peace and control attempt orchestrated by the leaders of the allied nations of France, England, Italy and The United States (Woodrow Wilson), in 1918. The treaty created the League of Nations, a United Nations-like alliance that was to protect human rights. The league failed many times due to lack of money and reluctance to impose sanctions. I compare the League to a corrupt police officer giving the illusion of protection while having no desire to do thus working against the people he/she is paid to protect. The treaty also sought, especially by the French, to contain Germany’s military power and make them pay for the reconstruction of Europe due to WWI. The allied countries held Germany responsible for the disaster caused by WWI. The Turkish, Austria-Hungarian empires crumbled and the Germans were left in economic depression having to fork over a large amount of the country’s income. In 1924, the Dews Plan lessened and revised Germany’s financial burden, but this was all too little to late. The Germans had tried to get their point across that they couldn’t pay for sometime, resulting in a terrible inflation which left the middle class penniless and creditors angry and strapped.

    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.
