Social Studies 10R – Mr. Berman
Aim #6: What challenges did the Allies face at the Paris Peace Conference?
Historical Context:

  • In 1917, Russia dropped out of the Allied side and left the war (because of the Russian Revolution) and the United States joined the war on the Allied side. The departure of Russia was VERY good news for Germany, who could now send all of their troops to fight Britain and France on the Western Front. Germany came within forty miles on conquering Paris in May of 1918, but were again turned back by the Allies at the Second Battle of the Marne. By this point, the Allies had 2 million new American soldiers fighting with them, and they were able to break the stalemate and start pushing towards Germany.



  • By November of 1918, it had become clear to Germany and the other central powers that they had lost the war. On November 9, 1918, the Germans signed an armistice and agreed to stop fighting. On November 11, the war officially ended at 11:00 am.




by bomb, bullet and gas.


  • The Allies met at the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 to negotiate the Treaty of Versailles that would end World War I (Germany and the other Central Powers were not invited to participate in making the treaty). The three main figures at this conference were David Lloyd George (Prime Minister of Great Britain), Georges Clemenceau (Prime Minister of France), and Woodrow Wilson (President of the United States). They were to decide who caused the war, who was to pay for the war and what was to become of Germany, Austria and indeed Europe as a whole.
