By Mr. Larry L. Stage on September 5, 2005
Format: Paperback
The Versailles Treaty, the most flawed if not the most infamous
treaties between nations, was in 1919, and still is the model of
wrecking the hopes for a "just peace" and at the same time
openly setting the stage for future wars. The 1919 Versailles
"treaty" made the Third Reich of 1933-1945 inevitable.
Reparations, based on Gold-Bearer Bonds of $33,000,000,000.00,
was something Germany or almost any other nation in 1919
could not afford to pay. The Versailles Treaty was the 1919
"garage sale" of Germany's war-weakened economy, and made
Germany weak in terms of any real national defense, even for
a defeated foe. Poland and Czechoslovakia in the 1919-1933
period did their best to try to kick Germany when that nation
had only a 100,000-man "defense force" to defend itself.
France, humiliated by it's stupid war loss to Germany in 1871,
only made things worse: For example, the Ruhr Invasion of
Germany--1923-1924. Also, several attempts to create a
series of pro-French separatist "Rhineland Republics"---1919-
thru-1924. A.K.A.--Divide and Conquer a prostrated Germany.

The new democratic German Weimar "republic" had to accept the
responsibility, and "take the heat" for the deposed Kaiser
Wilhelm-the Second, and also accepting the "fact" that Germany
had to not only admit, under coersion, that the Germans
"started" World War One, but to accept "full responsibility"
for the total costs of the First World War.

Colonel House took advantage of a emotionally disturbed
maniac-depressive called Woodrow Wilson, that tried to create
an abortive attempt at a new world order, that only made
the Second World War inevitable.
