Treaty of Versailles

  1. 1. The Treaty of Versailles<br />-485775436245The Five Causes of the Treaty of Versailles<br />The War Clause ~ 33%<br />This cause is 33% because as we’ve learned from Macbeth, guilt can drive people to go mad. They had to accept sole responsibility of the War. To accept this is to agree that you were at fault, to inflict that much guilt upon a nation would drive most of the population crazy.<br />The Movement of Germany’s Borders ~25%<br />This cause is at 25% because it meant that Germany had to give up some of their borders of their nation. This may not be the most important contribute to the War, but it certainly is in the top five because this caused a spark in Germany, for they didn’t want to give up their right to their borders.<br />Reducing Germany’s Military, Air Force and Navy ~20%<br />This is 20% because though Germany didn’t like this aspect of the Treaty, they were still allowed to have a small Military and Navy Force. Since they wanted more of Military protection, they were not about to give up the right to their forces of their nation. The anger of being controlled by strict rules and laws on how to run the country and its defenses lead to a freak out among the people. It would be like holding a stream of water in an area with a dam, if it’s not strong enough, the water will eventually break through with extreme force.<br />Reparations ~16%<br />This is at 16% because the cost was huge, but Germany did not have to pay up front. They had eighty-eight years to pay off their debt. This may not be the most important contribution to the War, but it eventually brought enough frustration to fuel the upcoming War. <br />Falsely Portraying Contents of the Treaty ~6%<br />This is at 6% because this is what sort of started the War. It may have not been the most important contribution, but it did start some of the conflicts between nations. Since Germany thought differently about what the treaty was about, it started some of the conflict simply by misleading the contents of the treaty. A misunderstanding, if not corrected can lead to terrible results.<br />The Treaty of VersaillesMnemonic Device<br /> <br />16002002765425<br />World War II<br />
