How was the treaty of Versailles harsh on Germany?
The treaty of Versailles was threatened on them by their allies, so they had to sign. They lost Alsace and Lorraine, they were forced to pay war reparations, they had to say that they fully caused the war, they had to hand over their war stuff and size down their army to 100,000 men, and had to give up all of their ships that were over 1,600 tons. :0 so, the treaty of Versailles was VERY hard on Germany.
WW1 was the cause. The Treaty of Versailles was the peace settlement signed between Germany and the Allies after WW1. The Treaty was a direct cause of WW2 because Germany was dissatisfied with the harsh penalties imposed upon the country by the treaty. The above claim that Versailles 'was a direct cause of WW2' is American college mythology.
The Treaty of Versailles ended WW One, not WW Two. The result of this treaty was to essentially totally ruin the Germany economy. Due to the American officials who helped write that treaty, the treaty was not as harsh as the British and French would have liked. Those 2 countries preferred Germany to be destroyed.
What harsh conditions imposed by the Treaty of Versailles after World War 1 most directly laid the foundation for another war?
depending on which treaty of Versailles you're talking about, Im going to assume its not the one that unified Germany but the one that ended world war I. one of the main issues that it had was that the reparations that were placed on Germany were so harsh that Germany started to get bad intentions,, many people blame the treaty for starting WWII!
