Treaty Of Versailles BBC Documentary

Of the many provisions in the treaty, one of the most important and controversial required Germany to accept responsibility for causing the war and to disarm, make substantial territorial concessions and pay heavy reparations. In 1921 the total cost of these reparations was assessed at 132 billion Marks (then $31.4 billion or £6.6 billion, roughly equivalent to US $442 billion or UK £284 billion in 2012), a sum that many economists at the time, notably John Maynard Keynes deemed to be excessive and counterproductive. The argument by Keynes that the terms were too harsh—too "Carthaginian"—convinced many British and American leaders, but left the French unmoved.

The result of these competing and sometimes conflicting goals among the victors was compromise that left none contented: Germany was not pacified or conciliated, nor permanently weakened. This would prove to be a factor leading to World War II.

American Revolution - 1776

October 26th, 1774 - The first Continental Congress, which protested British measures and called for civil disobedience, concludes in Philadelphia. By 1774, each of the 13 colonies had established a Provincial Congress, or an equivalent governmental institution, to govern itself, but still within the empire. The British responded by sending combat troops to re-impose direct rule. Through the Second Continental Congress, the Americans managed the armed conflict against the British known as the American Revolutionary war.

The Economic Consequences of the Peace by John Maynard Keynes - eBook | History, Geography and new technologies | Scoop.it

"If we aim deliberately at the impoverishment of Central Europe, vengeance, I dare predict, will not be limp. Nothing can then delay for very long that final Civil War between the forces of Reaction and the despairing convulsions of Revolution, before which the horrors of the late German war will fade into nothing, and which will destroy, whoever is victorious the civilization and progress of our generation." (John Maynard Keynes)
