A. people in Germany felt they had been treated unfairly. Apex
The Senate rejected the Treaty in March 19, 1920
President Wilson did sign the Treaty of Versailles, but he had foolishly refused to bring Representatives and Senators, particularly Henry Cabot Lodge, the majority leader in the house. This may have biased the legislature against the treaty, but the main reason the U.S. did not agree to the Treaty of Versaille was not that they thought it was too harsh, it was that the League of Nations had become part of the treaty. The U.S. did not want its foreign policy decided by another body, so they rejected the treaty. There is a certain irony that the League of Nations was the addition that the legislatures disliked, as it was the only part of Wilson's 14 points to make it onto the Treaty.
IT put the treaty of versiua (not correct spelling) which mention that Germany could only have so many army and basically controlled them improving the economy until Hitler thought of making a small group that grew huge.
Italy only joined the war to get land. When they received little land, they were upset. (A reason they joined on the Axis sides in WWII)
Japan thought only Asians should be in Asia. They didn't like the fact that England, France, and the Dutch had colonies in Asia.
King Louis XIV, who reigned longer than any other King in history, had big ideas. One of them was that the whole of the nobility ought to live with him in his palace, where he could keep an eye on them. As the Louvre was too small, he began a new palace at Versailles, ten miles out of Paris to the South-West. 2000 rooms, and a garden with a pond a mile long. Room for everybody, if a bit cramped. If you were a Duke you might get three rooms to live in and the supreme honour of holding the King's shirt when he got dressed. Everything the King did, he did in public. Often twice, to fit in all the spectators. Going to bed he did three times, because once the public ceremony was over, he was up and off again on, er, unofficial business. Dotted round the garden are smaller palaces for the King's lady-friends, and later Marie-Antoinette (Mrs. Louis XVI) added her own little house so she could play at being an ordinary housewife (it only had ten bedrooms and was build for Madame du Barry the mistress of Louis XV), and her own little village, LE HAMEAU (which she commissioned and designed herself), where she could play at being a milkmaid. The village is charming. The park and gardens were laid out by Le Nôtre, the greatest of all French gardeners, and Marie Antoinette and are full of statues, fountains, arcades, grottoes and temples. the fountains are turned on only a few times a year. Even in Louis XIV's time there was never enough water, so they turned on only the ones the King could see from wherever he happened to be standing. Entrance to the park is free except when the fountains are on. The Palace is a State Museum, so free to students; some rooms are simply open, others part of a guided tour. If you have to choose one or the other, take the park every time. This is from MINIGUIDE TO PARIS, which can be found on my own website at http://www.grenfell-banks.com/WEBSITE2/miniguid.htm Of course, you could just type 'versailles' into a search engine....
Many Americans objected to the settlement and especially to president wilsons league of nations.
Answer this question… It failed to set guidelines for retribution payments from the Central Powers.
The U.S. should have ratified the treaty of versailles because if it did, then maybe we could have helped the league of nations pervent WWII
wood-raw Wilson gained more from the treaty of Versailles because he didn't want to Germany destroyed
Germany were very angry about the treaty because they had been forced to sign it, and so the War guilt clause 231, which meant Germany took responsibility for the war. This meant that they had to pay massive reparations of £6,600 million as compensation for the damage caused by the war. They also had land taken off them, their army limited to 100,000 mean, the Rhineland demilitarized for 15 years and the Saar taken off them and given to France for 15 years. This all humiliated Germany and made them hate the Treaty of Versailles.
The Treaty of Versailles was overall a failure. It was meant to prevent the emergence of another World War, which it did not. However, to its defense, the appeasement method of Britain and France later on in the interwar period was much to blame for the ineffectiveness of the treaty.
Firstly, the Treaty of Versailles had left Germany devastated and bitter. The Germans had agreed to surrender expecting terms that would reflect Wilson's Fourteen Points. To Germany's surprise, Wilson was unable to defend his ideals against the overwhelming resentment that Britain and France held for Germany and he was forced to compromise with David Lloyd George and Georges Clemenceau which resulted in the treaty being much less desirable to the Germans. For one, the Germans were forced to pay reparation fees of 132 billion gold marks, leaving Germany's economy crippled and the people poor. Combined with bitterness towards the Allies, the desperation of the Germans led them to turn to Hitler who promised them a better life and to restore Germany's power.
Secondly, the principle of self-determination gave birth to numerous small buffer states being created around Germany. The Treaty promised the sovereignty and independence of these states, but the states had no military strength of their own to protect them when Hitler began invading these territories. As well, the Allies were reluctant to confront Hitler.
Overall, the Treaty of Versailles was not able to prevent a Second World War. The terms of the treaty had made the Germans bitter and desperate which led them turn to Hitler, who then seized all of the weak buffer states that surrounded Germany created as a result of the treaty.
Germany was banned from the League of Nations.
The Treaty of Versailles was a treaty attended by all victorious nations of the Great War (Except for Russia as they were in the middle of a civil war). It was to sort out what would happen to Germany as they were blamed of starting the Great War. The main contributes (Nicknamed "The Big Three") were French premier Georges Clemenceau of France, British prime minister David Lloyd George of Great Britain, and President Woodrow Wilson of the United States of America.
The Treaty of Versailles (1919) was the peace treaty which officially ended World War I between the Allied and Associated Powers and Germany. After six months of negotiations which took place at the Paris Peace Conference, the treaty was signed as a follow-up to the armistice signed in November 1918 in Compi
Stripping military force from the central powers.
De-militarized zone between Germany and France
A weak Peace-Keeping organization, "The League of Nations"
Forcing Germany to re-pay all war debts (eventually causing a world-wide depression)
No firm hand to keep the "wild child," Germany, under control.
Left Italy and Japan out of the treaty, making them want to be involved with Germany.
All of these eventually lead to WWII...
he wanted unconditional acceptance of the charter of the League of Nations.
This question is far too hypothetical for a sensible answer. Moreover, we have the benefit of hindsight. It's also more complicated than meets the eye. For example, there's a danger that people will give pipe-dream answers, without paying any attention to the realities of the situation.
i think you may be a bit confused. the us president, Woodrow Wilson, DID sign the Treaty of Versailles along with the other allied powers. however, the us didn't join the league of nations, which i think is what you may be talking about.
