Presentation Transcript

The presence of new soldiers from

the United States lifted the Allies’ spirit.



In Germany, the German people revolted.

The German people were tired of war.



The Germans established a republic

and the new leaders asked for peace.


The Armistice, an agreement to stop

fighting, was signed on November 11,

1918.


The Treaty of Versailles, the treaty

that formally ended World War I,

was signed in June 1919.


The Treaty of Versailles included a

war guilt clause that blamed Germany

for starting the First World War.



In addition, France took back

Alsace and Lorraine.



And the map of Europe was redrawn

as several new nations were created.


The German people hated the treaty. The treaty crippled Germany economically and resulted in high inflation and rampant unemployment. The harsh terms of the Treaty of Versailles would not lead to a lasting peace.
