Main points of the Treaty

German army must not be larger than 100 000 soldiers
Germany must accept full responsibility for the war (War Guilt Clause)
Germany must pay Reparations to the allies for the damages caused by the war
Super Inflation!
The Treaty of Versailles devastated Germany.
The Treaty built fierce anger in Germany, soon to be released by Hitler. The Treaty only worsened Germany's state of destruction. A country already depleted of it money because of the cost of war, was forced to pay to rebuild other nations.
Was the Treaty of Versailles Fair?
Or did it only light the fuse for the larger conflict to come?

The Canadian's were marked out as Storm Troops; for the remainder of the war they were brought in to head the assault in one great battle after another. Whenever the Germans found The Canadian Corps coming into the line they prepared for the worst."
