Treaty of Versailles “Big Four” - President Wilson representing the United States - David Lloyd George representing Great Britain - Georges Clemenceau representing France - Vittorio Orlando representing Italy Right Wrong Brought peace to the region. Nations were more interested in retribution than peace. Its territorial provisions were mild compared to what Germany could have imposed on Europe if the country came out victorious. It wrongfully enforced Germany to accept responsibility for the war. Austro-Hungary was actually the agent that started the war, drawing first blood, and Germany was just trying to uphold its treaty obligations, as were Britain, Russia, and France. Poland regained its status as a nation. To compensate for the vast destruction that occurred during the war, Germany was enforced to pay 132 billion Marks.

As a result, the country’s economy fell into ruins and radical parties took charge The treaty placed occupation agreements along Rhineland to help monitor compliance.
