Explain how the clauses of war guilt, reparations, disarmament, and loss of territory in the Treaty of Versailles lead to World War II.

  1. war guilt- Reparations made Germany poor, because of this many tended towards far right or far left parties. Failure to pay resulted in the french invasion of the Rhur region in 1923 further increasing hate for the treaty and the french.
  2. The war guilt clause angered many Germans and fueled the fires of the "stab in the back" conspiracy's theory.
  3. Disarmament, The Rhineland was demilitarised the size of the army was limited, the navy was only allowed a handful of pre dreadnoughts and minor ships, as well as no air force and no submarines
