The Germans were forced to sign the Treaty of Versailles in June 1919. They didn't have any choice, and they had to accept all the blame and pay reparations. They owed $30 billion dollars, lost Alsace & Lorraine and territory on their western border and colonies overseas. In general, the main focus of the treaty was to punish Germany.
