Treaty of Versailles DBQ Directions: Answer the questions after each document. Historical Context: On June 28, 1919—seven and a half months after the horrific fighting of World War I ended in November 1918—the Treaty of Versailles was signed by the victorious Allied nations of Great Britain, France, and the United States and by a defeated Germany. There were 4 MAIN causes of World War I: the building up of militaries (MILITARISM), the secret alliances between European countries (ALLIANCES), the spread of European powers in Europe, Africa, and Asia (IMPERIALISM), and the rise of loyalty based on national identity (NATIONALISM). The Treaty of Versailles attempted to address these issues to prevent them from causing another world war. The framers of the treaty hoped that it would stabilize Europe and ensure that another catastrophic war would never happen again. But just two decades later, the flames of war consumed Europe.
