At the end of World War 1, Germany lost the German colonies to other powers. Germany was part of the Central Powers and lost the war.
All controlled land, they had to cut back to 100,000 men in the army and they had to pay for all the damage they had caused, which left them in a national debt.
Because germany re-installed its policy of unrestricted sub warfare, many US citizens died on innocent ships as a result. This angered America and so Woodrow Wilson declared war on germany. When the Americans Joined up with the French and the British on the Western Front, it increased morale and troop numbers. Even though the Germans had pushed the allies considerably farther back before the americans arrived, once they did arrive they pushed the germans into full retreat. With that retreat, the Kaiser (Wilhelm) and his generals knew that there was no way they could make up the ground lost after the Americans arrived. It was only little while later until the Germans were forced to sign the treaty of versailes. However as we all know, this would not be the last time anybody would hear from Germany.
