After long secret meetings, the terms of the treaty were worked out at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919-1920, after which the peace treaty was signed. The Treaty of Versailles came in action on January 10, 1920, after its ratification by Germany and the four main allied powers – Great Britain, France, Italy and Japan.? What Was the Treaty of Versailles      The Treaty of Versailles was a peace plan, written by the Allies. The eventual treaty was 15 parts and included 440 articles. It was negotiated between the Allied powers during the peace conference in Paris in 1919. The negotiations revealed a split between the French, who wanted to dismember Germany to make it impossible for them to start a war with France again, and the British and the Americans, who did not want to provoke a new war. What Was Written In the Treaty of Versailles       The French made the treaty hard for the Germans so that Germany would not be able to start a new war. Germany had to decrease their armed forces from 6 million to 100,000 men, get rid of submarines, military aircraft and most of their artillery. Germany also had to give their territories away. The very big, reparation bill, that they were forced to pay, put serious financial strain on Germany. 132 billion gold marks had to be paid only as a first part of the German debt. Who Signed the Treaty of Versailles       On 28 of June, 1919  The Treaty of Versailles was signed between the nations, Japan, the United States, France, Austria-Hungay, Britain and Germany. Germany, Austria and Hungary did not participate writing it.  Why Was the Treaty of Versailles Written       The treaty was written to prevent events like World War 1 happening again. It was written by the Allies who dictated the treaty to Germany and forced them to sign it. Many Germans saw the Versailles Treaty as an attempt to destroy their country. They felt that it was utterly unfair and it demanded much more than they should have paid. Unfortunately the treaty provoked World War 2. Although, the treaty made the League of Nations, which decided things after the treaty was signed. It solved some international disputes without war, but could not stop World War 2.  In my opinion The Treaty of Versailles was a smart idea and a good solution for the problem at that time, but it was really obvious that at some point someone would disobey the treaty and a war would begin. I think that World War 2 could have been predicted, taking into account that Germany was very displeased with the treaty. On the other side it did solve other international problems which could have led to other wars, which I think is a good thing. So at the end the treaty wasn’t completely useless
