Part 2 on the The Treaty of Versailles
The terms of the Treaty of Versailles can be divided into three groups:
Territorial, military, and financial & economic. Here are some of them:
Alsace-Lorraine was returned to France.
Germany was forbidden to unite with Austria.
Lands in eastern Germany including the farmlands of Posen and the Polish corridor between Germany and East Prussia were given to Poland.
The Saar which had rich coalfields, were given to France for 15 years.
All Germany's colonies were taken and given to France and Britain as 'mandates'.
The German army was restricted to only 100,000 men, the navy could now only have six battleships and no submarines. And there was to be no airforce allowed.
The Rhineland was demilitarised. This meant the German army could not go to this area between France and Germany.
FINANCIAL AND ECONOMIC
Germany would have to pay reparations, which would eventually be set at an enormous 132 billion gold marks.
On top of this Germany was not allowed to join the League of Nations and it had to accept responsibility for causing all the damage and loss by the war.
