Germany had to take all the blame for the War-- The war guilt clause.

Germany's armed forces were reduced to 100,000 men, only volunteers, without armoured vehicles, aircraft or submarines and only 6 warships.

German troops weren't allowed in the Rhineland -- the area was demilitarized.

Germany was forced to pay 6.6 billion in reparations -- payments for the damage caused.

Germany lost its empire -- areas around the world that used to belong to Germany were now called mandates and they were going to be run by the League of Nations.

the treaty of Versailles

Unfair to Germany- punishments were too severe.

The Germans were left weak and resentful--could lead to anger and could cause them to retalliate.

The treaty wouldn't help rebuild European trade and wealth--Germany couldn't afoord the reparations and many of the new countries were poor.
