Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Treaty of Versailles, then pay attention... 

The treaty that ended the First World War, also known as the “war to end all wars,” was signed at the Palace of Versailles, which had been the home of French kings until 1789 and remains one of the most beautiful structures in the world. 

Though the men of Versailles (and they were overwhelmingly men) had arrived in Paris to put an end to World War I, by the time the conference ended, the main goal of the diplomats and national leaders had turned into ending wars for all time. Obviously, that did not work, and as a matter of fact, the end result of the Paris Peace Conference - the Treaty of Versailles - would likely cause more wars than any of its authors could have possibly dreamed of, including World War II. 

In The Treaty of Versailles: A Captivating Guide to the Peace Treaty That Ended World War 1 and Its Impact on Germany and the Rise of Adolf Hitler, you will discover topics such as:

  • Foundations
  • What came before
  • The truce and the run-up to Versailles
  • The Allies
  • The Fourteen Points
  • The scrambled map and people of Europe
  • The Middle East
  • Germany
  • The “stab-in-the-back” myth
  • The League of Nations fiasco
  • And much, much more...

Clear and concise discussion of Treaty of Vers

The work highlighted the most important aspects of the topic. I enjoyed the use of graphic cartoons of the periods considered to maintain points. The maps on the kindle version could be quickly enlarged for easier listening. Reference for more detailed study of the topic is noted in references.

Very interesting!

I love history, and I found this to be very interesting work. It's cool to see how all of the characters involved had such a large impact on the political choices made and speculate what may have happened if they held slightly different views.

Fast-paced, delightful listening

I exceedingly enjoyed reading this work. Having long been a fan of history, both ancient and modern, I don’t always have the time I would like to listen to traditionally longs texts. The author has packed a significant amount of information into a moderate size.

both prior to its creation and after its ratificat

A superb job is done by explaining the individual officers involved in the treaty and their particular motivations. Many of the colonial hopes that would lead to future problems are well defined as well as ethnic hatred and thirst for vengeance coming into play.

A great listening about the treaty and the world

I found this work very useful at increasing my knowledge of the world events of the entire 20th century. Captivating History did a great job of explaining world politics prior to the war which leads to a treaty that would fail driving to many of the wars to come during the last century.

The Treaty Of Versailles And The Aftermath.

Interesting that the term 'First World War' is used throughout - surely: the term was not used until the 'Second World War'; the term 'Great War'' was generally used before WWII?

More Than Thought Provoking

When World War I concluded many countries in Europe blamed Germany for making the war. They demanded reparations that proved to be crushing to the economy and the people of Germany. The Treaty of Versailles assigned the terms of those settlements among its articles.

This audibIe An Excellent work

I felt that this audible is an excellent work on the Treaty of Versailles and the aftermath. Some of the interesting facts that this work mentions in it include the following information: Woodrow Wilson was the first Southerner to be elected President since 1848.
