Who withdrew support for France after World War 1?
One of the main objectives of both France and Britain in the aftermath of the First World War was to ensure a strong France by weakening Germany. Therefore the Treaty of Versailles had punishing economic and military sanctions against Germany. However, although US President Woodrow Wilson was a key figure in the negotiations leading to the Treaty, the US did not support the French position--it did not sign the Treaty of Versailles, or endorse its provisions. The US signed a separate treaty with Germany in 1921.
