In the wake of the November 11, 1918 armistice which ended hostilities on the Western Front, Allied leaders gathered in Paris to begin negotiations over the peace treaties that would formally conclude the war. The talks initially included leaders and representatives from over 30 nations. To this crowd was added a host of journalists and lobbyists from a variety of causes.
Opening in January 1919, the Paris Peace Conference was convened to draft the treaties that would officially end the war. Dominated by David Lloyd George of Britain, Woodrow Wilson of the United States, and Georges Clemenceau of France, the conference re-drew the map of Europe and began to design the postwar world.
Despite the wishes of Wilson, a harsh peace was inflicted on Germany which included a loss of territory, military restrictions, heavy war reparations, and acceptance of sole responsibility for the war. Several of these clauses helped create the circumstance that led to World War II.
