What is The Treaty of Versailles?

The Treaty of Versailles was the one of the most important peace treaties of history that brought World War I to an end. The treaty declares that signing countries will accepted all the mentioned Fourteen Points formulated on the basis to achieve the peace. The nine points of treaty covers the new territorial consignments which were complicated by the secret treaties that England, France, and Italy had made with Greece, Romania, and each other during the last years of the World War I. The German delegates were presented with a fate of accomplice. Countries were shocked over the severity of the terms and protest the contradictions and gave the assurances made when the armistice was negotiated by the actual treaty.

The war guilt clause of the treaty initiated by Germany leads the aggressor in the war and ultimately made Germany responsible for making the differences to the Allied nations for the payment losses and the damage which were sustained in the war. The Treaty of Versailles has been the major contributing factor in stopping the bloodshed of the First World War. The treaty of Versailles was negotiated between January and June 1919 in Paris, and it was written by the Allies with involves almost no participation of the Germany. The negotiation was a revelation of split between the French, who wanted to remove Germany member to make it impossible for it to start the war again with France, and the British and the American countries. These countries did not want to create pretexts for initiating the new war. Therefore, eventual the treaty of Versailles included 15 parts and 440 articles in it.
