  • The final amount of reparations was fixed by a commission in 1921 at £6.6 billion; Germany also had to hand over to the allies most of its merchant shipping fleet, rail-way locomotives and rolling stock, patents, and overseas investments.
    • War Guilt: Under article 213, Germany had to accept responsibility of starting the war. This 'war guilt clause' made Germany liable to pay the reparations to the Allies for the damage suffered in the war.
    • However the amount Germany had to pay for the war wasn't disclosed in the original treaty it was disclosed a couple years after this made germans feel as if they were sigining a 'blank check'
