The Outbreak Of World War 1

606 words - 3 pages

It was November 11, 1918 when the cease-fire took place between the fighting groups. This Cease-fire was the ending of the world war one, and the beginning of a new era, that changed the map of the world since. In the aftermath of the war the political, culture, and social order changed in the world. Many treaties were taken place after the war to determine a valuable peace agreement between all struggling nations. The most important of those treaties were the treaty of Versailles where the “big three” countries, England, America, and France met to negotiate the consequence the defeated Germans should pay for this war. Other treaties were held after for other countries. The defeated countries considered these treaties unfair, hence the defeated countries were not allowed to appeal any decision. But time showed that the victorious countries were not happy with ...view middle of the document...

The points didn’t gain much support from the members of the Versailles, which prevented this document from becoming a reality. The document stated that War should be ended, some land that was being occupied by Germany prior to world war one should be returned to its owners, trading should be an option and within a free market without any taxes, and navigation through seas should be no problem.

The treaty of Versailles was considered unethical, harsh to the Germans, since they were not able to object. Sooner after the big three were also unsatisfied with the treaties or peace after the war. The French for instance wanted to punish Germany with the worst rules, to prevent it from any further War. The French objected on treaties, since French security were tied with the War. In England and America, another Criticism started. This treaty ignored the idealistic and liberal aims of the new western world. Peace didn’t end imperialism, instead promoted the national interest of the winning nations. Peace treaty had many consequences on the economy of nations, especially after the new map was a created, new border and tariff walls separated raw material from manufacturing areas. It created hatred between neighbor countries, and made it difficult to live side by side.
The treaties for peace failed to accept reality, that Germany and Russia, which are among the biggest nations in Europe, weren’t included in the League of Nations. Moreover the League of Nations was weak since there was no unity between victors. Britain and united state didn’t want to get into another war if Germany disobeys the rules of the treaty. Therefore France was left by itself, to defend the treaty. France had some barrier countries to prevent the Russian communism from spreading to Europe. Those Barrier countries were weak, and they would need help from France, if Germany revive from war and attack them. France was not strong enough to be able to go through another war. Therefore, we see that the treaty was useless, because there was no way of implementing it except by force, that didn’t exist.
