Germany was split in two and the winners demanded a lot of payments for the war (colonies, coal mines, money...) which Germany was, of course, unable to pay. Italy was expecting some benefits with joining the allies in the war, and the benefits were little. The new division of Europe was badly done, the same with the former possessions of the Ottoman Empire and the former colonies losers. So, the allies were demanding too much from the not-winners which create unhappiness between the population who make right-wing dictatorships possible.

the League of NationsThe League of Nations was included in the Treaty of Versailles. Many of his other points regarding treaty Germany with respect following the war were ignored by Britain & France.
Woodrow Wilson was dissatisfied with the Treaty of Versailles. He was an idealist and wanted to build a better and more powerful world from the ruins of the first world war. He agreed with the fact that Germany should be punished for what they did, but to an extent. He was worried that if they treated Germany too harshly, then Germany would someday get revenge. Woodrow Wilson believed that all nations should agree and cooperate to achieven world peace, which is why he set the league of nations up and wrote the 14 points.
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 League of Nations was a government formation resulting of the Treaty of Versailles during World War I. Congress rejected the Treaty of Versailles and reparations that Germany had to pay according to the treaty. Therefore the United States never joined the League of Nations.
Yes, part I of the Treaty calls for and establishes the League.
The treaty, known as the Treaty of Versailles, included a reparations bill that would cost Germany $33 billion for the damage to the economies of the Allied Nations.
America did not join the League of Nations because the Senate did not ratify the Treaty of Versailles. The reason for this is because America did not want to immediately send troops if another nation was attacked. The League of Nations had stated that, so the Senate did not ratify the Treaty of Versailles.
The USA senate rejected the treaty of Versailles on I9th November, 1919, basing primarily on objections to the League of Nations.
President Woodrow Wilson supported the Treaty of Versailles even though he was somewhat dissatisfied with it. His goal in supporting the theory was to achieve world peace by decreasing the army and navy of Germany.
