A bit about Versailles;

Isolated Germany; made them resentful for the future.

Led to huge debt in Germany ; cause huge problems that helped Hitler get to power later.

One of the causes of hyperinflation in Germany (i think)

Led to creation of League of Nations (which was seen as a club for victors.)

A while since i did this but hope it helps.

St Germain

  • lost territory to Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Italy and Poland
  • reparations
  • armed forces limited to 30,000 men

Neuily

  • Territory lost to Yugoslavia, Greece and Romania
  • Reparations of £100 million
  • armed forces limited to 20,00

Trianon

  • Territory lost to Romania, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia
  • reparations to be paid
  • armed forces limited

Seures

  • Territory lost to Greece, Italy and Bulgaria
  • parts of land became British or French mandates or French protectorates
  • reparations to be paid
  • armed forces were limited

Versailles

  • War Guilt Clause - had to accept blame for starting war
  • Reparations - £6600 million
  • Territories and Colonies - colonies became mandates of L of N, Alsace- Lorraine returned to France, lost land to Poland, forbidden to unite with Austria
  • Armed Forces - army limited to 100,00 men, conscription banned, not allowed armoured vehicles, submarines or aircraft, navy could have 6 ships, Rhineland was demilitarised
  • League of Nations was set up - not able to join until 1930's

Hope this helps. The common thing was each of the Treaties reduced country morale and made people bitter - especially in Germany which was something Hitler used later

I agree with tikabuzz, from looking its the only reply that both states the effects and evaluates how that effected germany, not just they had to pay reparations but the fact that led them into financial problems, for example.

Simply stating the terms will get you no marks in no exams
