All the foundational information your students need to build their knowledge, interest, and skills upon. Concise information in point form with stunning images and thought-provoking questions. **

The treaty that ended World War I was meant to bring about an age of peace. Instead it sowed the seeds for the conflicts of what would be the most violent century in history. Understanding the motivations of the people involved and the context of the time they lived is crucial to understanding the 20th century.
