This thoughtful book describes the course of events that followed the armistice of November 11, 1918, which stopped the fighting in World War I. Readers will learn about the Paris Peace Conference of 1919 where the leaders of Britain, France, and the United States met to agree on how to deal with Germany and other defeated countries. This meeting resulted in the creation of the League of Nations, and set out terms for the Treaty of Versailles and the redrawing of the map of Europe. Discussion boxes describe how the crippling financial penalties and political and military restrictions placed on Germany would contribute to Germany’s rise in power again and a Second World War. Highlighted sections also look at the legacy of World War I in terms of advances in warfare, technology, medicine, and women’s rights.
