  • The Peace Settlement
    • Three Concerns to think about

    • The Big Three
      • France, Georges Clemenceau (Prime Minister) - wanted harsh punishments
      • Britain,  David Lloyd George (Prime Minister), wanted modereate punishments so they could continue to trade.
      • USA, Woodrow Wilson (President), wanted to generous so there was little risk of future war.
        • The USA has suffered the least, so wanted to stay impartial!
